TED Releases Android App; 1,100 Talks At Your Fingertips

By Zesty

It seems it won’t be long now before new businesses start out exclusively as mobile apps, if the rate at which websites are offering mobile versions of their products is anything to go by.

TED, the non-profit, inspirational talks organisation whose motto is “Ideas Worth Spreading has today launched its Android app, supplementing its iOS mobile apps. TED stages and streams talks that vary from 3-18 minutes in length, from creative minds in pretty much every sector, such as technology, arts, charity, education and entertainment.

It’s yet another example of the growing influence of the Android market, one that app develops cannot afford to ignore. June Cohen, Executive Producer for TED Media said that “With its vast installed user base, the Android platform is an important new frontier for us in our effort to bring new thinking and ideas to even more people.

The app is free to download and lets users browse and watch the full TED catalogue of more than 1,100 TEDTalks. It can be used on both tablets, Amazon Kindle and mobiles, can be used offline and as an audio online offering. Other features include new videos daily, browse and search, sharing to Facebook, Twitter or email and bookmarking.
