Are you better off Ted?
by on March 15, 2012
Chris Anderson is one brainy fellow. Not only did he found Future Publishing – the company behind T3 – but he is also the creator of one of the most innovative technology conferences around, TED Talks.
While TED has been on iOS for some time now, it has taken a long while for it to come to Android – well, in an official capacity at least. But now it is here on Google Play and we are pleased to say that you are in for a treat.
Available to those with Android 2.1 and above, TED allows you to delve into the minds of some of the brainiest people on the planet and encounter subjects you’ve probably not even heard of before – Chautauqua and Botany for instance.
The app works great of both smartphones and tablets – we tried it on the Samsung Galaxy S2 and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the app worked effortlessly.
Navigation of the app is fluid enough. You can either dive straight into the features talks, or go by the most popular and the newest. We preferred sifting through the myriad categories and getting our bite-sized nuggets of knowledge this way.
Play a video – most are around eight minutes long – and it will go full screen. The quality isn’t fantastic but it is fine for those who put up with everyday mobile clips.
With over 900 talks available, the TED app is a veritably feast of intelligent information. There’s so much to do here, it’s a real surprise the app is free.
