As smartphones replace personal computers as the primary way to access the Internet, a great number of new smartphone services have emerged. However, individual customers tend to use a limited number of services , and individual services tend to be separated and disconnected from each other, with no links between them.

With the aim of creating a whole new world of mobile Internet, the Syn. concept intends to double the value of the smartphone experience by transcending the existing limitations of services in pursuit of greater interconnection, integration, and convenience.
