Absolutely addicting and entertaining but also very informative and educational. So many different talks about a very broad spectrum of subjects, research, and so much more! Love it and I watch at least a couple of talks every day to unwind while also learning something new with each and every talk. Better than podcasts in my opinion. Always a 5/5 stars for me and I'd give it 20 stars if I could. Top 10 favorite apps!

This is not the Ted I used to know. What is with a 20-minute ads that are hard to skip? If you tried to listen to a playlist, it inserts ads that are 20 minutes long and then you have to click a button to skip. So unattended listening is dead. Sometimes it just skips the next video and starts at 20 minute add again. I don't mind short ads give it up to a minute and a half long. Thats fine. But 20 minutes long???

I really want to love this app but the download feature is AWFUL. It constantly fails to download playlists and will try for hours. And then, if you try to cancel it downloading a playlist because it is stuck it will undownload the WHOLE playlist. On top of that, even once you manage to get something downloaded, unless you're connected to WiFi or data it frequently won't play it. And sometimes even when you're connected it still won't play it and will freeze and spin forever even if you kill the app. Andddd furthermore, I couldn't find the setting that only allows it to stream over wifi. There's one for downloading only over wifi. But I've accidentally streamed over my data plan multiple times now. Which I wish I had more control over. Overall, the only reason I didn't give this app 1 star is because the content is worthwhile and the interface would be great if I could get the downloading to work smoothly. As it is, I feel like it's trash.
