TED is the new iPad app for the TED Talks – the awesome series of talks from some of the world’s brightest minds on some of the world’s most compelling topics. In terms of cool content to have on your iPad, it doesn’t get much better than this. Here’s a slice of its App Store description:
Riveting talks by remarkable people, free to the world.
TED presents talks from some of the world’s most fascinating people: education radicals, tech geniuses, medical mavericks, business gurus and music legends. Find more than 700 TEDTalk videos (with more added each week) on the official TED app.
TEDTalks are delivered in high or low res formats based on your network connectivity. Curate your own playlist. Watch them later, even when you can’t be online.
The entire TEDTalks library is at your fingertips. Sort views by recency or popularity. Find something by tags, themes, or related talks. Tell us how much time you have and let us guide you to a delightful playlist.
This really sounds like a great app. Even though I’ve installed the app on my iPad, I can still only say ‘sounds like’ because it does not seem to want to run any videos at all for me on my iPad running the iOS 4.2 beta.
You can find TED in the App Store now, and it is a free app.
If you’ve had a chance to try TED out on your iPad, please share your thoughts on it in the comments so that I can be envious of you.
