Great! You have released a new version of your app less than 3 months ago.

Version 4.2 released on November 13, 2017
One of the best features about the TED app is that you can be notified when there is a new talk we are excited about. We wanted to make that an even better experience so we gave it an upgrade for this release. If you have push notifications for TED enabled (and you should!) we now attach the talk image as well as buttons to instantly add the talk to your Watch List for later or to start watching instantly. That's not the only change in this release. These fixes also made the cut: - The tab bar should now be the same color as the navigation bar so it doesn't look slightly off on the newest iPhone's fancy OLED screen. - We fixed a few layout layout issues with the Recent Talks widget on the newest iPhone. - There was a small gap between the section header and the navigation bar on the playlists screen on the iPhone that looked unsightly. We got rid of it. Sorry, gap. - There was a very subtle movement of TED Logo on splash screen that only the most keen of eyes would notice. We like to think we have keen eyes, so we fixed it. - If you ran into issues updating your database it was probably because of a temp file created during the migration that we forgot to remove. We now remove that file. - There was some weirdness with the splash screen when updating the TED database so we fixed that too. - You should no longer have duplicate items show up in your Watch History. We know that Adam Grant talks are great, but we don't need to show the same talk in your history twice! - Fixed a crash that could occur when showing the Recent Talks widget. - Fixes potential crash when trying to load a Surprise Me playlist. - Resolved potential crash when showing the audio playback controls on iOS 11. - We now sign the user out and remove any cached download files as part of resetting the app if it gets into a bad state. We hope you never have to try this feature out! We'd love to hear from you. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at contact@ted.com. ps. We don't prompt you for a review in the app because we don't want to take away from your time with our speakers. However, if you are enjoying TED for iOS, please take a moment to rate and review us on the App Store. It really helps us out!

Version 4.1 released on October 25, 2017
Everyone on the TED mobile team just returned from our annual staff retreat in lovely upstate New York. Our staff retreat is an opportunity for all of TED to come together think about where we'd like to go in the next year, be together, and maybe get too competitive with Double Solitaire. We came away with lots of exciting new ideas and opportunities and look forward to sharing them with you over the next year. Until then, we've got a few fixes and updates to follow-up on our account sync release. * There were a few visual glitches that showed up when upgrading the app to iOS 11, so we squashed them. * When your new iPhone arrives, we're ready for it. * Our push into accessibility continues with support for the Smart Invert Colors feature introduced in iOS 11. * We fixed a crash that could occur if the app performed a background content fetch in certain instances. * We fixed another crash that could occur if you tried to restart a download that already in-progress. * We cut down the frequency that we can refresh our "Talks In" list on the Featured tab because we care about your battery life and our server bills. We'd love to hear from you. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at contact@ted.com. ps. We don't prompt you for a review in the app because we don't want to take away from your time with our speakers. However, if you are enjoying TED for iOS, please take a moment to rate and review us on the App Store. It really helps us out!

Version 4.0 released on October 16, 2017
Let's not bury the lede: you can now sync your watch list, liked talks, and even your watch history with your TED.com account. Yes, really. This is by far our most requested feature since we launched TED for iOS back in 2010. We're excited (and relieved!) to finally offer this feature to all of our users. Whether you are signed into your TED account or not, we also keep track of your watch history in app so that you can quickly find that great talk you watched the night before to share with your friends and colleagues. Me? I'm telling everyone about Mei Lin Neo's talk about the fascinating lives of deep sea clams. Fun fact: the TED mobile team loves its sea creatures. I'm patiently waiting for my octopi, team. In addition to account sync and watch history, we've continued our quest to make the TED app a better accessibility citizen. Specifically, we made several accessibility improvements to the Surprise Me tab to allow VoiceOver users to discover courageous, funny, or inspiring talks from the TED catalog. We'd love to hear from you. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at contact@ted.com. ps. We don't prompt you for a review in the app because we don't want to take away from your time with our speakers. However, if you are enjoying TED for iOS, please take a moment to rate and review us on the App Store. It really helps us out!

Version 3.2.1 released on October 01, 2017
Hello again, TEDsters! We have something exciting for you all coming very, very soon. But first, we need to do a little housecleaning to get things in order. * We added 15-second rewind and fast-forward controls to video playback. We don't want you to miss that key point in our next favorite TED talk. * We show a bit more context when you stream your talks to your Apple TV using AirPlay. * We now defer to your system settings for showing subtitles. We hope this makes them easier to read for folks that like their text a little bigger than our designers do. * We made great strides in VoiceOver support in the TED video player. If you're a VoiceOver user, we'd love to hear from you about how we can make it even better in the future. Let us know! * Our universal link support works again on your iPhone. Have you seen the new TED.com? It looks great. * We now do a better job at enabling English subtitles on talks that are not natively in English. * We fixed a few issues where video downloads would never resume after the app was removed from the multitasking switcher. * We fixed an issue where you couldn't rotate the video player when playing your 'Surprise Me' playlist. That was indeed surprising. * We added Control Center support for video playback. It's just like our support for audio that we added recently, except for moving pictures! * Most people say "bug fixes and performance improvements" in their release notes. We just make that a bullet item at the end of our list. We did indeed fix a lot of little crashes and tried to clean up some memory usage throughout the app. We'd love to hear from you. If you run into any issues or have general feedback on our app, email us at contact@ted.com. ps. We don't prompt you for a review in the app because we don't want to take away from your time with our speakers. However, if you are enjoying TED for iOS, please take a moment to rate and review us on the App Store. It really helps us out!
