Definitely love TED Talks in general. The app works really nice, too. Favorite feature is ability to download higher res to watch later/offline. Perfect for flights. But.... WHY oh WHY don't you allow talks to be downloaded to the SD card? I have a Moto G4 with 32GB internal and a 128GB SD external storage. Storing media files such as pictures, songs, and videos is the most obvious use of external storage. Adoptive Storage in Lollipop and forward holds the promise of eliminating the internal/external storage issue, but so far there are plenty of issues with Adoptive Storage and many manufacturers simply disable this Android feature.
Great idea How about the ability to download talks to watch later for those of us that don't have good internet connection all the time? It would be great to have some videos loaded and ready to go! :D Updated to five stars for being able to download, don't know how I missed that before!
Come on! You cant play the talk with your phone locked. This is BS. I downloaded it to listen to talk while at work and i cant keep my phone unlocked. Then you have the nerve to play ads when i cant even lock my phone..
Brilliant content ** Edit: There's an option in Settings. Defaulting to Off is an odd choice but setting to On works well. ** The app won't play in the background. For the audio-only version this is nonsensical. Real shame as I'd love to listen to these amazing talks whilst walking or continuing to use my phone
Biased towards favoring Islam TED used to be one of my favorite apps, yet unfortunately totally lost its objectivity. In its recent talks so many Muslim speakers one after another making talks favoring Islam as if Islam got anything to do with concepts of TED. Not to mention there is not even one single talk on Islam made by an ex-Muslim.
Amazing content but How is the app available on my cheap 50$ LG smartphone but not my cool Samsung Galaxy Tab? Google Playstore says its not capatible with those devices. I vote suggest you change that.
We fixed an issue when switching to full screen playback on Android 7, as well as some other nifty little bug fixes and performance improvements.
