TED itself is great. Love the content and the fact you can like or save content for later. This app is just a buggy mess. Sometimes, it won't navigate back after pushing the back button and then in quick and glitchy succession take you back. I utilize the unsave button to remove talks from my saved list as I watch them (I've removed some multiple times over the last year) but each time I close the app and come back they are still there. Please fix!

Love the content, still too buggy. The app won't navigate after a few thumb clicks and once a video has started, it doesn't seem to let me pause the video, switch to another video, or do anything else except scroll up and down on the screen. I'd give a higher rating if the app was more touch responsive.

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.
