Syfy for iPad

All the latest news and behind-the-scenes gossip from your favourite shows

If you love Merlin or Caprica, then the Syfy for iPad app will feel like an app made especially for you. It works by bringing all the official websites together in one place, complete with high-res photos, videos, and behind the scenes content.

Syfy for iPad is easy to work with, the grid-based home screen letting you find your favourite programmes. One tap will open each show’s menu, and each further step is clearly labelled, taking you deeper. Here, you will also find links to related social networking pages and gossip from the show. There is also a synopsis of each programme, so there’s always the possibility of finding something new.

One of the best features is the ability to set up alerts from each show, so should anything from your favourite programmes become available, you never miss out.

The schedule does a similar job, as it allows you to see Syfy’s scheduling for the next two weeks, so you can plan your night in with the TV and app.

The range of videos on offer is very impressive, offering key moments, behind-the-scenes gossip and interviews from big events like Comic Con. You get the same range of content from the photos section too.

Syfy Connect is the place to go for exclusive web chats with the stars of your favourite shows, giving you and even deeper insight into Syfy’s strong stable of programming.

We also discovered a nice easter egg; a maze game that will keep you occupied during ad breaks.

Overall then, Syfy for iPad is a great companion for a night in front of the TV, and with links to memorabilia sites and multimedia content, you’ll feel closer to the shows you love
