Great !! Update fixed
Thanks for fixing the latest update, I was able to give back my five stars for this great app.
Since installing the latest update this app crashes just as it is about to start a talk!!?? I have deleted it and reinstalled several times with no effect. I have emailed the developers last week no reply so thought I should warn people not to update until it is fixed. Still watch Ted talks on the web site.
I will reinstate the five stars when I get my app back.
Below is my original review which I will stand by once I can use the app.
Can't get enough of your speakers. There is a wide range of topics to suit most people, personally I love the science talks the best. If I don't have time to listen attentively I just press the Hart button so I have a personal list of topics for later.

Sorry about this - this was happening for a small % of devices, so thanks for reporting it and helping us find the issue. We've fixed in the latest version 4.3.2.
44% battery used in background, app unresponsive
Using a pretty much brand new 6s. Was wondering why my battery had dropped significantly over night. I noticed the at the TED app, which I haven’t used a single time since I have this new phone, has used up most of it without asking. Was wondering what it did so I checked data usage, has only 500mb stored. Opened the app to check downloaded videos, videos aren’t downloaded. Then the app became completely unresponsive and froze the whole phone to an extent which I haven’t seen before. Neither home button worked nor lock button not app switcher. The phone got a tad warmer and dropped 7% battery. Within a minute the phone caught up all the actions that were requested while frozen and I was finally able to kill the app and delete it. Happy to provide error logs for you guys, chuck me an email and I’ll send them over. The app, if it works is good and the whole concept of TED is great unquestionably.
Developer Response ,
This is concerning - we haven't seen this before but if you're willing to send error logs, it would be much appreciated and we'll definitely investigate. Please send any info to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance for your help!
I have a problem with offline video
This apps is pretty good, I use it to listen TED talks everyday.
But after the lastest update I had some problems below:
1. The most problem is when I downloaded the videos to see this offline, some of the videos downloaded but can not play offline.
2. When I pause the video to use dictionary, the video stuck and can not continue play
I use iPhone 6s & iOS 11
