Announcing TED’s new Android app

This morning we’re thrilled to formally announce TED’s official app for Android, which lets you browse and watch 1100+ TEDTalks on a wide array of Android-enabled phones and tablets.

The new TED app for Android is built to adapt to all kinds of Android devices, including the new Sony Tablet P “dual screen” and the Amazon Kindle Fire, making it feel natural and familiar to users across different devices. You can find the TED app in the Google Play store and the Amazon Appstore for Android.

The functionality of the TED app is fine-tuned for the mobile audience, and allows for offline browsing and viewing, as well as audio-only engagement: App users who are out for a jog, commuting to work, or simply multi-tasking can listen to TEDTalks, either on an individual basis or through TED’s curated audio stream.

Features include:

Up-to-the-minute videos: TEDTalks are published daily, and Android app users can see the latest TEDTalks videos as soon as they’re available online.
Browse + search: Whether they’re online or off, users can browse the TED library – by theme, tag, rating or popularity – and search for a talk by speaker name or topic.
Easy sharing: Users who are inspired by a talk can share it easily over Facebook, Twitter or email.
Bookmarks: Users can mark and save talks for viewing later within their “My Talks” tab.
Offline viewing: The app is designed to support a mobile lifestyle, in which users move fluidly between online and offline use. Users can download video and audio directly to the device to watch on the plane or other locations where Internet connectivity may not possible. The full library is searchable in offline mode.
Curated audio stream: Out for a jog, multi-tasking, or just interested in listening, TED app users can listen to TEDTalks, either on an individual basis or through TED’s curated audio stream.

Find the TED app for Android in the Google Play store and the Amazon Appstore for Android.
