For the readers

Hey TED team! I have always enjoyed watching and listening to TED talks and I personally find them extremely insightful and entertaining, and I think others would say the same. And I feel that as someone who is trying to develop a stronger reading habit, TED would be perfect for this. Here is my idea; there should be a tab for the videos where one can access everything the speaker is saying but in words. How would applying this benefit TED? Doing this means that we can aim at an even larger audience, and we get a larger variety of people on the app. Having this would mean that people who aren’t interested in watching or listening, can now actually be engrossed. I truly hope you look into this idea, as I believe it will be a success.

Thank you for your feedback! We'll be glad to consider transcripts for future app development. For the moment, a good alternative would be to visit the mobile version of TED.com on your device, which does have transcripts available for reading.

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.

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
