Introduction:

Welcome to the TED app, the app that brings the idea leader for innovation and science to our Xbox One's in the form of an instance source of many TED videos. There is a tremendous amount of content in the app ranging a wide variety of interesting topics and inspirational stories. Along with a plethora of information, TED comes with some scary looking achievement requirements, but we have a way to get around them! No fear, let's begin by looking at a quick tip and then get it started!

 

Important Tip -- Fast-Forwarding

Fast-forwarding is your absolute friend for trying to finish this app in a reasonable amount of time. Even if you were to watch every single talk on the TED app you would not hit 500 hours so plan on using the http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j401/markv1982/rt.png to speed up to x128 and then play the talk with a small amount of time remaining and rinse and repeat in the next talk.

 

Abbreviated Walkthrough:

We begin by launching the app and searching for a talk. After you search for your first talk you will unlock "Found an idea." Now we want to go to the different topics for talks, find political, and pick any talk to start your three in a row with a similar topic. After your first video you will unlock "You have met TED." Once you finish the third talk in a row that are all related you will unlock "On a roll." Note that you cannot do it from a playlist, they need to be separate videos. Now we can move to playlists, and we start by choosing any playlist. Using the fast-forward trick we go through all of the videos, and then repeat until we hit 10 playlists watched, and snag three achievements for it (1, 5, 10 respectively). This leaves us with the tremendous task of getting 500 hours.

 

There is one video I recommend to watch over and over to grab the 50, 100, 200, and 500 hour achievements -- "Edward Snowden: Here's how we take back the Internet." The talk is just over 35 minutes, so plan to fast-forward through the video approximately 700 times to earn 500 hours. This will most likely take you upwards of 6-10 hours to do, baring any super human resolve to finish.

 

Conclusion:

Well ladies and gentlemen, if you have made it to this part of the RoadMap it means you have finished off one of the most brutal apps on the Xbox One Store--if you do not fast-forward. The TED app is an amazing resource of knowledge, innovation, and frankly a gateway into the future if you spend the time to learn from the talks. If you just press forward through the videos it should take you several hours of grinding, but you've done it! Congratulations and we'll see you in the future!

Watched your first talk

 

After downloading the app, simply choose any talk and watch it or fast-forward to the end. As soon as the app finishes you should get credit for watching and the achievement will unlock. It always helps to have your achievement app snapped to the right to assist in telling if a video counted, and how much more you need to do.

Searched for a talk

 

There are two ways to search for a talk.

 

  1. The first is to select the search feature on the left menu bar to bring up the search menu and then type in what you are looking for there. (Anything will do, if you do not know what to search, try 'stem cells' or 'games').
  2. Like most things, if you press the http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j401/markv1982/menubut.png it will give you the option to search, and you can simply type in whatever key word you want and go from there.

Watched 3 related talks in a row

 

Related talks will appear both at the end of any talk, as well as in succession during a playlist. When you watch talks in a playlist though, the achievement will not track so this has to be done separate the playlist achievements. Here's how I would do it:

 

Go to 'Browse All' option, and then go to a refined topic such as 'Politics.' From here watch any video from the list, and at the end you will see related videos, so choose the next. Fast-forward through that and finally choose the last related video for the achievement to unlock.

Watched 10 playlists

 

Watching a playlist is simply going through all of the videos in a particular genre, theme, or talk focus. In order to get to them you will need to scroll right until you get to the header for playlists. Now you need to watch all of the videos in a particular playlist, and at the end of the final video the tracker will update and you will need to do nine more playlists.

Watched 500 hours of talks

 

So this is the big achievement from the TED app. Although hundreds of hours through the other achievements is rough, 500 total is a monument to grinding ability, or not? If you utilize the http://i1084.photobucket.com/albums/j401/markv1982/rt.png to fast-forward through videos, playing the end of the talk, letting it end, and then repeating. There is a video called "Frank Gehry: My days as a young rebel" that is close to 45 minutes long, but many people tend to have it pop an error at the end of the video not granting credit for watching. Instead you may have to take a significant decrease in time with "Edward Snowden: Here's how we take back the Internet" that comes in around 35 minutes. You will need fast-forward through this talk close to 700 times, so as you can see there is a lot of grind here, even with fast-forwarding.

 

Good luck, and within a handful of hours dedicated to fast-forwarding, you should be at 500 hours of talks and finished with the app.
