Half a year after receiving its last major update, TED has just now been updated to version 2.0.
In case you’re not familiar with it, TED is the official iOS app of the popular global conference set of the same name, which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design.
Founded in 1984, the TED organization is widely regarded as a place to discuss “ideas worth spreading.” Since 2006, it has provided free online talks at its official website, TED.com. And since 2010, it has also made these talks available on iOS through the official TED app.
And that very same app has just been given the big 2.0 treatment.
The bulk of what TED 2.0 has to offer can be summarized in three words. Nope, not Technology, Entertainment and Design again. Rather, they are: subtitles, translations, and speed.
With TED 2.0, you get access to subtitles in over 90 languages directly from the app’s new video player or over AirPlay.
Also, you can browse the TED talks catalog as translated to your preferred language.
Furthermore, TED 2.0 is up to speed in that it lets you get new talks and downloads much quicker. It also offers improved videos with faster buffering and more profiles for different connection speeds.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 6.0 or later, TED 2.0 is available now in the App Store for free.
