Great but...

I love this app and I think it’s really educational. The only problem is I tried to open it this afternoon and the app didn’t launch. I tried turning my phone off but it still didn’t work. I need help on how to stop this from happening.

Developer Response ,

We are very sorry to hear this - we aren't seeing this in our labs, so more info could help us fix it, and we would appreciate your help getting to the bottom of it. Please send an email to with your device model, iOS version, and more info about what exactly you're seeing when you try to launch the app. Thanks!

No.1 Essential Education App

Something for everyone here, you could spend all year round educating yourself with these talks or just a few minutes a week. It’s not only educational but fascinating. Talks last from between around 10-40 minutes, so there’s always something for everyone to suit your own level of free time. I’d like to be able to save my favourite speakers, so even if you’re not curating anything by a favourite speaker this month, it would be nice to be notified when someone I enjoy is added to your current collection of talks. Everyone can benefit from something from TED.

Great app

This is a brilliant way to educate yourself if you lose your focus a lot when reading. The my downloads area is particularly good as you can save a list of things for later and even watch/listen without an internet connection if you’ve saved them. Just wish it told you which ones you’ve already viewed so you didn’t end up clicking the same one and realising half way through that you’ve already heard it. Other than that, great educational tool!
