With the shutdown of the famous TVZion, many users found themselves in the pursuit of a decent replacement. Luckily, Syncler did not take long to surge and fill the gap.
At first contact, there is no doubt that Syncler derives so many things from TVZion. Yet, the way it works is quite different in many aspects.
The developers of Syncler made sure their app won’t suffer the fate of TVZion shutdown for copyright claims. Thus, Syncler doesn’t host or provide any content or any scrapers therefore it does not fetch any links. Hence, the chances of going offline like TVZion and other relative applications are null.
To be able to use Syncler, users must install provider packages. These are like addons for Kodi and Stremio or bundles for Rokkr app.
The good news is that Syncler can work on any Android device (Lollipop+), and that includes Android TVs (Fire TV, Nvidia Sheild, Android TV boxes), phones & tablets.
