One of the most fascinating Android apps that appeared this week is without a doubt the revamped version of the official TED app.
True to its mission, the organisation released the app free in the Education category. Android users can bring to their tablets and smartphones more than 1200 TED video conferences, from "education radicals, tech geniuses, medical mavericks, business gurus, and music legends."
The library is continuously being updated with the latest TED Talks, where the massive pool of information is tagged, categorised and is search-able, for easy navigation.
The new TED app is available for a wide collection of Android devices and comes with a customised version, for Amazon's Kindle Fire.
June Cohen, Executive Producer for TED Media explains the move as a part of the strategy of accessing a larger audience. "With its vast installed user base, the Android platform is an important new frontier for us in our effort to bring new thinking and ideas to even more people," said June Cohen.
For now, the app is available in the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store for Android, with availability expected to expand in the near future.
