The Lobster Ultimate Remote Control offers the unique ability to create, edit, and save customized drills wirelessly (compatible with the Grand V, Grand V LE and Phenom 2 models only) This cutting edge remote control app not only commands every single feature on your Lobster tennis ball machine, but now you can now create, alter, save or delete drills directly from your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad….no more programming the drills at the machine only. You can create up to six custom court drills with each drill having up to six sequential shots. Assign an independent ball speed, ball spin, and ball feed rate for each and every shot within the custom court drill created. The options are endless!

Ratings and Reviews

iOS app works, not the watchOS app


The iOS app works great but the watchOS app doesn't seem to work at all. I can't figure what's wrong. It doesn't seem to respond to any input.

Check out the Playmate Tennis App


1. You can't find the app if you search for lobster tennis ball machine app or similar.
2. Can't build a library of shots and then just assemble the ones you want.
3. The ball machine is good at spitting out single balls / double lines etc but almost impossible to program as their 3 row approach means you lose control about how you get a ball to a certain location line drive? Lob? Etc. it chooses the "how" for you.


PlayMate Tennis has created an amazing app. Wish I had gone with them instead of Lobster. This app is poorly made in comparison and lacks a lot of features.
Earlier review (still stands)

You have to pay $499 for a remote and iPhone remote so you would expect this to be amazing. But it is not:
1. Does not connect quickly and if the phone turns off it is quicker to quit the app and then wait and then reopen the app and hope it works. It often does not and you have to repeat the process.
2. The remote does not have all the controls that the back panel does.
3. You cannot build up a huge library of drills on your phone and then load up the ones you want. They should look at how PlayMate does their app - includes video of the drill and you can create a big library of plays and load up what you want.

The app feels amateurish and needs a total redesign.
