It’s hard not to admire TED‘s extensive quality video library (now more than 1,200 talks strong). It’s getting even harder to steer clear of the many marvelous videos in there – ideas worth spreading indeed.

This morning, TED released an official Android app in the Google Play Store and the Amazon Appstore to complement its iOS application.

Evidently, the non-profit isn’t charging for the Android app.

Basically, the TED app enables users to browse, bookmark, search and watch the full library of 1,200+ TEDTalks, which range from 3 to 18 minutes in length.

Thankfully, all available talks are categorized and tagged.

According to a press release issued this morning, the new TED app is built for a wide array of Android-enabled phones and tablets, including the new Sony Tablet P “dual screen” and the Kindle Fire. The design adapts to various screen sizes.

It was built in collaboration with Sony and Mercury Intermedia.

No word on what took ’em so long.
