Release Notes

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!
