What's New

Let's not bury the lede: you can now sync your watch list, liked talks, and even your watch history with your TED.com account. Yes, really. This is by far our most requested feature since we launched TED for iOS back in 2010. We're excited (and relieved!) to finally offer this feature to all of our users.

Whether you are signed into your TED account or not, we also keep track of your watch history in app so that you can quickly find that great talk you watched the night before to share with your friends and colleagues. Me? I'm telling everyone about Mei Lin Neo's talk about the fascinating lives of deep sea clams. Fun fact: the TED mobile team loves its sea creatures. I'm patiently waiting for my octopi, team.

In addition to account sync and watch history, we've continued our quest to make the TED app a better accessibility citizen. Specifically, we made several accessibility improvements to the Surprise Me tab to allow VoiceOver users to discover courageous, funny, or inspiring talks from the TED catalog.

We'd love to hear from you. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at contact@ted.com.

ps. We don't prompt you for a review in the app because we don't want to take away from your time with our speakers. However, if you are enjoying TED for iOS, please take a moment to rate and review us on the App Store. It really helps us out!
