- use Notification Center Widget unlimited number of times forever;
- see no adds anymore - nothing will disturb your ATV watching experience;
- access priority support from our team;
- get all other uber improvements and features we will add in nearest updates for free too!

Always losing your remote? That’s where CiderTV app comes to the rescue. Featured on iDownloadBlog, Product Hunt, AppleTVHacks, Macsources as the best alternative to native ATV remote.

NOTE: to control Apple TV box from widget you need to pair it from the CiderTV app first and then add CiderTV widget to your Notification Center.

This app needs native remote (only for 1st setup), but even if you do not have it, any other remotes (including apps), paired for use with your Apple TV before will work as well. And once you pair CiderTV next time you'll be safe.

Want a solution right now? For more information please visit our FAQ inside the app or ask support via in-app chat.

Well, if you are out of luck, you can always order a new remote. And link it to CiderTV once it arrives. This way, if you happen to lose your remote a second time, you won’t be in any hurry to order another one.

- Move between items - swipe left/right/up/down
- Go to Menu (Home Screen) - long tap (press for a second)
- Play/Pause/Select - simple tap
- Go back - double-tap
- Rewind or Fast-forward - swipe left/right. Further swipes will increase rewind/fast-forward speed

OR you can switch to the Native mode right inside the CiderTV app and use the Menu button to go back/ go to home screen just like with native remote for Apple TV.

Customer Reviews

Interesting but fix it


This is an interesting app, but it has glitches. I couldn't add but one Apple TV until I deleted the app, then reinstalled it... pretty frigging bad play folks. The help button is a joke as well. Either staff up or farm out service. For almost $9 For the app, I'm sure someone can answer a question, or at least post some common issues and resolution procedures. Not asking for a lot, just an app to work as marketed.

Worst App Ever 👹


I have purchased this app for $8.99. It's a total waste of money. App is crashing a lot and on top of that it's not allowing me to add multiple Apple TVs. My advice is to stick with original Apple TV Remote App and control TV volume either with Apple Remote or TV Remote.

Waste of Money!

This app didn't sync with my Apple TV. I hope you don't get stuck wasting money on this garbage!
