App of the Week – TED App
Published on January 19, 2017
Looking for education or inspiration on the go? With the official TED app, you can get the best insights from the world’s foremost thinkers, artists, and leaders, even when you’re lying in bed or fighting for a seat on the CTA.
The TED app offers the entire TED Talks video library at your fingerprints, easily searchable through the app’s simple, accessible (and very, very red) interface. Not only can you watch videos in the app, but also bookmark or download intriguing options to watch later.
Feeling a little more aimless? Looking for the right video to find you? Plug into the TED app’s custom playlists, which are arranged by categories ranging from “funny” to “jaw-dropping” and curated by in-depth topics that run the gamut from “Breakfast” to “Neuroscience.”
And if English isn’t your first language – or if you’re trying to get a handle on a new one – choose one from the expansive list of subtitle options.
