Official TED Talks app launches for Android on Google Play Store

The TED organisation have been making iPhone users smarter for ages. Now it's time for Android users to become more acquainted with some of the world's most innovative thinkers

 

The innovative and thought-provoking TED Talks have finally arrived on Android with an official app featuring a massive array of conference-style presentations from some of the world's most influential and original minds.

The TED app has been available on iOS for quite some time, but this Android effort, developed in association with Sony, brings all that knowledge to Android phones in an official capacity with a library of 1,100 talks to choose from.

The presentations, from the non-profit organisation which devotes itself to spreading "ideas worth spreading" range from 3 to 18 minutes in length, appear within the app as soon as they're uploaded and are easy to share via Twitter or Facebook.

Talks can be downloaded for offline viewing, while an audio stream can also be selected if you're off out for a jog and don't want to keep your eyes peeled to the screen. Users can also bookmark their favourite chats.

TED for Android works across the range of Android devices and tablets, including the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Sony Tablet P with the design adapting to fit the various shapes and sizes of screens.

The launch of the free app certainly gives us something more productive to do on a train journey than chase that elusive third star on the latest Angry Birds Seasons update.

We've already got a TED for Android review up on the T3 App Chart, so check that out and download the app from the Google Play Store.
