What's New in Version 5.2.0
Syfy Wire was formerly named Blastr, but we’ve gone version 2.0. As our corporate parent, the TV network Syfy, shifts its focus more onto the genres we love, follow and cover, the name is being joined to our efforts and the fandom that drives them. While the name has shifted, our coverage hasn’t – all geeky movies, TV, comics, games and more are all still on our plate.
Blaster that constantly misfires...
This app has a long history of failing Apple users. It used to often auto-crash. Now it just has a horrid interface and no landscape mode. Furthermore, the site now features a small cadre of utterly pretentious writers that can't enjoy escapist sci-fi or fantasy material without "unpacking" the socially troubling issues behind nearly anything that doesn't go out of its way to cater to every minority group at the expense of story. Seriously, try to go a few days without finding a column poised to cause social debates in fandom, resulting in ill-feelings between readers rather than fostering shared bonds of enjoying escapist fare. The only escape you'll truly enjoy is uninstalling this App.
I love it.
All those years ago, when my family first had cable installed into our home, little boy that I was, deeply embedded in the SyFy channel. And now I speak just as well of this app. Nice work.
Clean user interface but please bring back:
Ability to play videos in landscape mode. When I turn the phone around now the video stays in portrait mode.
