‘APPily Obsessed – TED


I have regular conversations with my younger, not so smaller, brother about apps that we have discovered. This has spawned a little obsession and I would say, on average, I fall in love with a new app about once a month.

This month’s app is that of the TED talks website. If you are not familiar with TED then prepare to have your mind blown. It is an incredible platform for people to share ideas, usually in the form of a short and powerful talk at a TED conference. These conferences are recorded and the videos are placed online for anyone and everyone to view, for free. It’s one of the greatest things that has happened to anyone ever.

The TED app is an extension of their website; where you can watch talks, download them for offline use, star your favourite talk and of course share with your social networks. The reason why I am so obsessed with the app is because I can download talks to watch whilst I’m on the tube, at the gym or just when I’m in the need for some great entertainment. I like to think that having my mind opened to learning something amazing for fifteen minutes is better than playing The Sims… right?

If you don’t know about TED then download the app and prepare to be in awe. If you do already know about TED then fill your boots with as many awesome talks as possible as often as you wish.
