My only problem with this app is that there is no indication of how long the talk is anywhere on the description page (labeled "about" - which includes when it was filmed/submitted, author bio, etc.). I would think this is a no-brainer to include and is a glaring oversight.
You would be hard pressed to find better quality content anywhere else. Innovative, inspirational and occasional mind blowing
Thanks Ted :)
Cool App really help love it
Ted talks are so cool. Their website is good, but this app is great and keeps your interest by categorizing topic talk videos, whether you want inspiring or funny or innovating ted talk videos have you covered. Plus the surprise me function is pretty cool, you set how much time you have and videos automatically stream until the time is up..
Ted talks are absolutely amazing! Their app works really well! I listen to at least one talk everyday. So entertaining and informational!
