TED, one of the top producers of technology and industry conferences in the world, today announced the new TEDtalks app. With the new app Android users can choose from over 1100 industry related keynotes, conference lectures and fireside chats to view across multiple Android devices.

According to TED the app is optimized for a wide range of screens including the new Sony Tablet P and the Kindle Fire, leaving virtually every Android owner, with access to the myriad of content found from many of TED’s top conference over the past few years.

More after the break

Android users can benefit from the fact that TED has also included audio only engagement which makes listening to the conferences, lectures, fireside chats and keynotes as easy as watching them. There is also an off-line viewing mode which allows the lecture or content you are watching to be cached to your device so you can view it on the go away from a signal.

Other features of the TEDTalks app 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.
