Mostly perfect
There are many great things about this app, I have no idea why there are low ratings. From my experience, I am able to enjoy all of the TED talks - the featured and the ones I've watched before the app existed, plus many more. All of my viewing, or at least most of my TED viewing experiences, comes from this app. You have the ability to save talks for offline viewing, you can bookmark talks you want to watch again or watch someday, you can simply choose to listen to the audio with their audio only feature. I do wish the app offered the length of time each video is. It tells you when the talk occurred and gives you a summary of the video but I'd love to see how long a video is. And I don't want to have to press play to see how long a video is within the video player. You don't have the ability to read or post comments via the app, but that's fine with me. You are able to email video links, which is nice for sharing. Overall, the video and sound quality is great. It works with Apple TV. I'm a happy and frequent user and would recommend to others. I do find the viewing experience more pleasurable via my iPad. I used to be able to watch from my iPhone, but not anymore as I do not have the latest iOS, which prevents the app from opening beyond the splash page.

Nice App - Still has big bug though
Continue to get (-11800) error when I try to play offline videos that I've downloaded.

I would love to use this app but every time I try to open it, it almost immediately crashes. Needs to be fixed

Great app, maybe add...
Love the app! I would love to see a suggestion feature as well as the info provided about the talk--other talks similar, or that the user might like after watching that particular talk. Being able to access the curated talks like on the website and sort bookmarked talks. Thanks!

Great but needs improvement
1) Needs the ability run in background so I can surf the Internet. No fun to learn about woolly mammoths on TED w/o simultaneously researching on Wikipedia 2) In other words, needs the ability to be "audio only." 3) Needs "share" while listening to talk. Currently you can only share after the talk is done 4) Nice to have: button that displays "intro synopsis / about / author" while watching talk
