The Lobster elite remote control allows players to use an Apple Watch, iPhone, iPod, or iPad to control the complete operation of an elite two or elite three ball machine. Users can control the ball speed, spin, elevation, feed rate, sweep, and vertical oscillation with the added benefit of not needing an additional remote control device. With this app, Apple Watch users will be amazed by the convenience of controlling the machine from their wrist!
A set-up guide can be downloaded from the second screen of the app or on lobstersports.com (on the elite10 remote for Apple page).
The Lobster elite remote control app only works with an elite two or elite three ball machine which has the factory installed elite10 remote for Apple wi-fi receiver. To upgrade your machine, please contact Lobster Sports at 800.526.4041.
Updated for iOS 13.

Extremely disappointing app for the price of the machine
For what you pay for one of these machines, you’d really expect more from this - frankly - abomination of an app.
First, you have to change your phone settings for it to work with the Apple Watch (display timeout has to be set to ‘Never’ - remember to switch it back or RIP to your battery life).
Second, it operates over WiFi instead of Bluetooth, which is not a huge deal, but again goes to show that you’re not getting the most seamless user experience as you should for this expensive of a product. You get annoying messages like “This network can’t reach the internet” from your phone when connected.
Third, the WiFi connection frequently drops and makes the machine uncontrollable from the phone app or the Apple Watch app.
Fourth, the watch app doesn’t stay in the foreground of your watch, so to control the machine after hitting a few balls you have to go back into your app viewer and find the Lobster app.
Lastly, the buttons on the app only increase or decrease the current settings. There is no way to know what speed you increased or decreased the machine too, only that it went up or down.
For how expensive of a machine this is, they really dropped the ball on this app. Consider competitors with better apps.
It doesn't work
I bought new elite machine directly from lobstersports. Wifi connects but buttons don't work. They sent me a new controller board I just replaced it and the same thing Wi-Fi connects and the buttons don't work. piece of junk
