Syfy Sync allows you to go inside your favorite Syfy shows in a whole new way. The Syfy Sync app listens to the episode you are watching and delivers contextual photos, videos, behind the scenes trivia, games and more to your iPad or iPhone. It actually responds to WHAT you are watching, giving you a whole new level of interaction with your favorite Syfy shows.
Syfy Sync is currently available for a number of Syfy shows, including 12 Monkeys, Face Off, Defiance, Sharknado and Sharknado 2.
The best part? You can use Syfy Sync anytime; it works with live and repeat viewings, DVR marathons, or episodes watched online or On Demand.
There's more! You can use Syfy Sync to link your Twitter and Facebook accounts to connect with other fans. You can even interact with the show's stars during the live broadcast.
*Plus: Syfy & Philips Hue Bring You A Whole New Sync!
For those with Philips Hue personal wireless lighting, this version of Syfy Sync delivers a completely unique experience. Utilizing hue lights, Sync can control the environment of your room to match the action on screen, giving you a whole new level of interactivity. Use it now with Sharknado, Sharknado 2 and the entire first season of 12 Monkeys! You can watch the entire season with unique light tracks for each episode!

- Improved Philips Hue light tracks! We’ve gone back and rebuilt the way Syfy Sync serves lighting events, providing an even better experience when syncing your lights!
- Sync your Philips hue lights with the entire first season of 12 Monkeys for an audio-visual experience like none other. 12 Monkeys returns in 2016.
- Use Syfy Sync and Philips Hue for Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! Coming July 22 at 9/8c (and look for reairings of Sharknado 1 and 2)

All TV should be moving to this addition. As should movies and video games. Philips Hue is a game changer and thanks to SyFy for doing this
I wanted it to be so much more!
I wanted it to be so much more!
The lights are almost random, they don't react to the tv like I expected!
You have to keep the app open and your screen on. You can't turn your screen of and have it running in the background like it should be able too!
I just expected more.
Syfy Sync update a huge disappointment
Don't the developers test their changes?? Rhetorical question to which the answer can be found in the subtitle of the latest Sharknado movie - Hell no! Busted again. They did something on the server side to hawk the Sharknado movies and broke the sync for Defiance and the other shows. The last developer on one of my teams that pulled a stunt like this ended up on six months supervised probation (every line of code and every config change had to be reviewed and signed off by a senior developer). Unfortunately stupidity like this is fairly typical for this app.
The developers did something on 12/11 that has totally disabled this app. The logo screen comes up then it does a fade to a white screen after which it crashes immediately. Weren't the changes tested before they went live? (rhetorical question) Guys, there ARE established testing protocols and procedures out there (see the ISO 9xxx series Standards) that'll help prevent this sort of nonsense.
Rating reduced to 1/4 of 1% of 1 star
The latest update now called Syfy Sync reduced the content enormously. Now you can only view the 'sync' info from a limited set of seasons for five shows: Face Off, Defiance, Warehouse 13, Being Human and Haven. All of the previous content for all other current and previous shows is gone as are the schedule, videos, photos, Syfy twitter Syfy store and even feedback. I used the sync function in the old app and enjoyed it. I also enjoyed reviewing the photo and video sets and background info for other shows. Reducing the app's functionality and content so massively was, what do they call it, an incredibly boneheaded idea. If you haven't updated DON'T.
