TED Launches For iPhone

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Previously only available for the iPad, TED is now available for iPhone and the iPod touch courtesy of this new official app.

TED, for those not already in the know, is a global collection of conferences that focus on new and innovative ideas.

The app allows users to browse and watch TEDTalks, videos ranging from 3 minutes to 18 minutes in length, offering a great bitesized explanation of some very cool ideas from speakers on everything possible from genetics and geopolitics to sculpture and creativity. It's a great way to learn about something new and get thinking.

The iPhone app has been tailored specifically to the mobile user's needs with the option to simply listen to TEDTalks rather than watch the videos. TED Radio also exists to stream curated audio 24/7, for whenever the user wants to check in.

Also new to the app is the Bookmarks feature, allowing users to flag and save talks they don't have time to watch/listen to just yet. It means it's easy to access again later and with no need to wait for the TEDTalk to download either.

All in all, TED is an interesting way of discovering new things at any time and anywhere.

It's out now.

Be Inspired by TED

Posted by Kyle Flanigan on May 9th, 2011

TED (Technology, Entertainment & Design) is a twice-yearly free conference that focuses on spreading ideas. “We’re building ... a clearinghouse that offers free knowledge and inspiration from the world’s most inspired leaders,” writes TED, “and also a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other.”

Now, TED is available on the iPad App Store. The applications supports videos of TEDTalks (18 minute speeches from those with ideas) in high or low resolution, online or offline; as well as a ‘tag’ search facility to make it easy to find specific ideas. Speakers include Al Gore to Jane Goodall to Sir Ken Robinson. And everything’s free - from the download to the watching.

The iPad presents a thrilling new platform for delivering a TED experience,” said June Cohen, Executive Producer of TED Media. “We rethought the user experience to take advantage of the portability, the touchscreen and the focused media time people have when they travel or settle in for an evening. We think TED fans will particularly love the “Inspire me” button, which creates a custom playlist to fill the exact amount of time they have free.” Available now, with or without subtitles.

TED Releases iPad App

TED, if you haven't heard of it, is a global collection of conferences that was originally focused on new and innovative ideas in the realm of technology and design, but now has spilled over into great ideas in any field. Starting in 1984, TED was created to provide a platform for "ideas worth spreading", and has since had famous speakers including Bill Gates, Al Gore, the founders of Google, and (huh?) Sarah Silverman.

Because of its astronomical ticket prices (upwards of $5,000 a pop), most of the fans of TED view the conferences either through the TED website or via podcast. According to a Wikipedia stat, the conference is hugely popular, having been viewed by more than 290 million people worldwide, and the number is growing at a rapid pace.

Since TED started as a tech influenced conference, it comes at no surprise that they have released their very own iPad app, available for free in the App Store. The app lets you view all the TED videos (in hi or lo res), create playlists, get recommendations on things to watch, and even download videos for offline viewing.

"The ability to hold onto some videos for offline viewing when I’m on a plane or train, or otherwise offline, is awesome." said Matt Drance, developer of the TED iPad app. "I never thought I’d learn so much staring at my iPad for hours at a time!"

With more than 700 TEDTalk videos to pour through (and more coming every week), the TED app will certainly keep fans of the conference captivated for quite some time. Pick it up for free in the app store today.

Five For Friday: Week of October 15, 2010

Posted by Chris Nitz on October 15th, 2010

Scene It? Horror:
In celebration of the impending celebration of candy, cavities, ghosts, vampires, and other horrors, why not test your horror movie knowledge as well. Scene It? Horror pits your knowledge of great movies like 28 Days Later, American Psycho, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and a massive amount more. No cheating is allowed for you movie fanatics. That means no using IMDB or loading up the movie to get the answers.

SpongeBob Marbles & Slides:
Head to Bikini Bottom to help the gang with their lack of slides. Use your fingers to draw slides to aid SpongeBob, and gang, reach the Krusty Krab in hopes of defeating Plankton. Bonuses come to those who can solve the puzzles quickly and skillfully. Hey, there is no shame in having fun with a squirrel in an astronaut suit.

Mad Office HD:
Mad Office HD is a game about a real life situation….sneaking out of work uncaught by the boss man. Those who perform combos and take greater risks are awarded more points, and the crown of super slacker. Simple controls, fun visuals, and an interesting concept are sure to add up for a good time of sneaking off to do some fishing.

You have photos and you want to share them with the world. Instagram will now only allow you to easily share photos, but it will also allow you to add a bit of a personal touch to them as well. Apply over a dozen filters to your photos, post as many photos as you like, share with friends, check in to Foursquare, and connect to a variety of social networks. This just might be the easiest way of sharing photos created to date.

TED brings you engaging chats with remarkable people. Everyone from tech gurus to music legends are here waiting for your attention. You can even explore the entire TEDTalks library for that obscure clip you have long missed. TED now even includes more iPad love with the new iPad edition.
