What's New

Hello from TED HQ! This release brings even more improvements to your video experience in the TED app.

- We made a few improvements to how our video playback controls hide after a period of time. If you tap on a the fast-forward or rewind button, we now reset the hide timer instead of hiding the controls instantly.
- Startup times for a playlist of talks should be a bit faster than before. We're now deferring some work until you start playing a talk.
- If you are streaming to your TV, the double-tap gesture in the video player is now disabled.
- Speaking of streaming, we improved the user interface for streaming. Bugs were fixed. UIs were polished. Many TED talks were watched in the name of debugging.
- If you are as pedantic as your humble release notes narrator, you probably noticed that little stutter that would happen when our video playback controls disappeared. Reader, I bring good news. That stutter is no more!
- Our video player once again adds a poster image to Control Center. We also improved seeking in Control Center.
- For the programmers out there: we fixed a crash that could occur when a CMTime value would return NaN instead of a valid time.
- A few missing VoiceOver labels have been added to the video player.
- There was a potential crash that could occur for our signed in users. There is no longer a potential crash that could occur for our signed in users.

We hope you enjoy the new release. 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!
