6:30 PM (San Diego-time) update for Wednesday, December 13th: 

FYI, we'd like to Summarize a few important things about "Photosets Pro":

1.) It's a FREE app, will be Released on January 1st, and will very-likely ONLY be Available for Download in the States,

2.) Without the "Photosets Pro" subscription, it's a Performance-crippled app (see the comments below about photo capture rates),

3.) Pricing for the "Photosets Pro" subscription is as follows:  $0.49 USD for the First Year, $0.99 USD for each Subsequent Year,

4.) Pre-Ordering could begin as early as December 23rd,

5.) It's a rare, true Flagship-caliber camera app, that has NO direct competitor !,

6.) We "may" delay the Release a few weeks (to pitch it to Institutional Investors, as well as potential Partner Companies),

7.) It's "sister" app, "Photosets for Android" is progressing well, and could potentially be Released on the exact same day !


10 AM (San Diego-time) update for Wednesday, December 13th: 

FYI, we have decided to move-forward with a slightly-different app name, "Photosets Pro," rather than "Photosets Freedom" ... everything else we've described the past few days stays the same.


8:30 PM (San Diego-time) update for Tuesday, December 12th: 

FYI, today we decided to also adopt the 2nd app option announced by Apple just yesterday ... specifically, because Photosets Freemdom is a new app, it is eligible for the new Pre-Order option ... as such, we've now specified a Release date of January 1st, 2018, and plan to Open-Up Pre-Orders on December 23rd !

So, to summarize, yesterday we adopted one of the new Introductory Pricing options (see below), and today we adopted the Pre-Order option.

At launch, Photosets Freedom will very-likely ONLY be available in the States.


11:30 PM (San Diego-time) update for Monday, December 11th: 

FYI, we have decided to drop our custom B2B app efforts, and instead release Photosets Freedom v1.0 later this week to the iOS App Store ... earlier today, Apple announced (support for) "Introductory Pricing for (Auto-Renewable) Subs," which we believe "could" work well for us ... specifically, we're now in the process of adding a "Photosets Pro" sub to the app ... it will be priced at $0.49 USD for the first six months, and then ~$2 USD per year after that.

If a User decides NOT to extend the Photosets Pro sub after the six month Introductory Period, then, at that point, the Max photo capture rate is reduced from 30 photos per second to ONLY 15 photos per second ... all other features remain enabled.

If a User decides NEVER to sign-up for the Photosets Pro sub, then the Max photo capture rate remains set at ONLY 10 photos per second ... all other features remain enabled.

What makes the app special is it's High Capture Performance ... 4K, 12 Mpx, or 8 Mpx capture resolution at up-to 30 photos per second ! ... up-to 45 photos per photoset ! ... and, the two newest features, Multi-View Capture & Photosets TV Capture, take it all to the Next Level, enabling you & your friends and/or family to craft innovative Group-oriented Video Stories !


9:30 PM (San Diego-time) update for Sunday, December 10th: 

FYI, today we are announcing that the company's newly-developed Cosmosent Mobile Device Manager (CMDM) has entered it's first Field Trial ... the CMDM is an important part of our business strategy moving forward, and is required to Distribute the Photosets Freedom app onto any mobile device ... in other words, it's Use is specifically specified in the License Agreement ... it's based-upon the User Assignment model, enabling our Business customers to easily & efficiently distribute Photosets Freedom to their customers, NOT just to their employees !

You can think of it as your own private highly-scalable iOS App Store, with just one app, Photosets Freedom !


12 Noon (San Diego-time) update for Saturday, December 9th: 

FYI, we've decided to Limit Availability of Photosets Freedom to ONLY those Apple mobile devices with 3 GB or more of DRAM:

iPhone 7+, iPhone 8+, & iPhone X

10.5" iPad Pro, & 2nd-Gen 12.9" iPad Pro

This decision ensures that all supported devices can capture "at-least 30" Full Resolution 12 Mpx photos per photoset !


7 PM (San Diego-time) update for Friday, December 8th: 

FYI, today we officially kicked-off "Photosets Freedom," the B2B version of Photosets X that we had announced just yesterday ... you won't ever see it in the iOS App Store, however, we are confident you will soon hear about it !

Just like Photosets & Photosets X, Photosets Freedom is a rare, true Flagship-caliber Motion Photography camera app !

If all goes well, we'll be announcing our first set of Licensees before the end of the month ! ... no later than mid-January 2018.


11:30 AM (San Diego-time) update for Friday, December 8th: 

FYI, we've received overwhelming positive response to the change in Business Strategy that we announced just yesterday, except perhaps for one thing ... the (High) Price of the NON-exclusive License Fee ... as such, to accommodate such concerns, as well as to help expedite adoption, we've decided to adopt a Pay-as-You-Go strategy ... specifically, the Up-Front Fee for the NON-exclusive License is now set at $1M USD, which enables up-to 1M Downloads ... Licensees may (then) enable additional "1M chunks" of Downloads, at $1M USD each.

Most have never heard of Photosets or Photosets X ... we expect that to now change throughout the remainder of December !

If this strategy catches on, as we fully expect it will, we expect every single App Developer with a Unique & Innovative app to follow suit.

And naturally, we're now also Fast Tracking "Photosets for Android" !


9:30 PM (San Diego-time) update for Thursday, December 7th: 

Cosmosent Labs, Inc., is today announcing that the company has officially "pivoted" from Consumer apps to B2B apps ... specifically, the Photosets & Photosets X codebase will now live-on as a Business-to-Business app that we selectively license to particular companies, organizations, states, & countries ... as such, we have permanently removed Photosets X from sale in the iOS App Store.

The NON-exclusive License Fee is $100M USD & includes Three Full Years of Updates ! ... source code will NOT be provided to anyone, under ANY circumstance.

Integral to the solution is our newly-developed "Photosets TV for Mac" companion app (see below), which is included in the License Agreement.

Photosets / Photosets X is a Billion Dollar (Plus) App that simply wasn't treated as such by Apple ... as such, "we are (now) taking our marbles elsewhere".

Many of you "may" now never have access to all the cool things in the Photosets codebase, and certainly NOT to any of the cool things in the Updates coming down the Pipe ... you can thank Tim Cook & Phil Schiller for that !

We've already devoted more than 15,000 R&D hours into the Photosets codebase ... Multi-View, Photosets TV, & LiveColor Discovery™ ALL need to be Enhanced & Refined as much as possible, and the app's User Experience needs to be improved as much as possible ... the app is already fairly Robust for what it is, so other than what we've mentioned, plus the misc. Bug Fixes along the way, It's Good to Go for the Long Haul !


10:30 AM (San Diego-time) update for Thursday, December 7th: 

In addition to working on v1.11, we're also currently working on the Consumer-version of "Photosets TV for Mac," and hope to Release it in a few days ... it supports up-to four iOS devices plus a Mac (so, five total devices in the "Session"), and will be priced at $5 USD ... and very-importantly, it will ONLY be available via this website.

From a high-level perspective, "Photosets TV for Mac" is simply a Media Player that enables you to craft innovative "Group-oriented" Video Stories, while at the same time, magically Offloading your recently-captured photosets (from your iOS devices) ! ... it consists of the Editor / Playback Controller portion of Photosets X, with some custom secret-sauce to make it all happen in an Efficient & User Friendly manner !

The significance of Photosets TV for Mac should NOT be UNDER-estimated by anyone ... very specifically, it's our starting point for developing custom set-top boxes for certain Business Segments that we have an interest in, and UN-like anything on the market today ! ... if you're able to think outside the box, you just might be able to figure-out what we're talking about ... there is a Hint to it all in the app, in Settings ... the Business-version of Photosets TV for Mac will ONLY be available to certain customers we've cut a deal with, while the Consumer-version of Photosets TV for Mac will be available to ALL !

Photosets X is currently available ONLY in the States.

The (updated) Menu options for Photosets X (v1.10)



10 PM (San Diego-time) update for Tuesday, November 28th: 

FYI, we we're out of the Office most of today, giving Live Demo Public Presentations of our "Multi-View Capture" & "Photosets TV Capture" implementations ... part Field Test, and part Q&A, the presentations were a BIG success  ... and while most of the (final) code is already in (Photosets X), you won't be able to Enable the features in v1.9 ... you will however, see it all (in Action) very soon !


v1.10 adds "Multi-View Capture" & "Photosets TV Capture"

Multi-View Capture is simply multi-User and/or multi-Device capture, with each Photosets X app configured as either Master, Slave, or Master/Slave (Round Robin Scheduler).

Photosets TV Capture is simply the sending of photosets, as they are being captured by the camera, to the "Photosets TV for Mac" app running on your local Mac.

Whether you're In the Field or In the Studio, "Multi-View" & "Photosets TV" are designed to work well together !

FYI, we're currently working on Video Tutorials & In-App User Instructions to try to help our Users get up to speed as quickly as possible ... we hope to have these available by early-December ... Photosets X is a comprehensive & powerful Camera, Editor, Video Maker & Video Story Maker, that may be difficult for some to Master without such User Tools.


This website covers five Unique & Innovative topics
(none similar to anything you've probably ever seen or experienced before):

1.) the "Photosets X" iOS camera app (also known as "Rocket"),

2.) the "Photosets TV for Mac" Media Player (a companion app for Photosets X),

3.) our custom "Autonomous Synchronized Multi-View Capture" technology,

4.) the "Photosets Social Network," &

5.) the "Photosets Thunder" attachment camera.


Key Tip for Effectively using Photosets X

If you want to get the most out of Photosets X on your particular Apple mobile, you'll need to Force Quit ALL backgrounded apps ... such apps eat-up precious memory (i.e., DRAM), which prevents Photosets X from running at it's Highest-Performance level.


Photosets TV for Mac - The BIG Picture

(When used together, Photosets X is "the Producer" of content, while Photosets TV for Mac is "the Consumer" of content ... when running Photosets TV for Mac, we anticipate that ~50% of our Users will drive their BIG screen TV with their Mac, via an HDMI cable)

6 PM (San Diego-time) update for Friday, November 17th: 

Quick follow-up regarding our "Photosets TV for Mac" app before heading out for a Beer: 1.) to Download it, you'll need to have an account setup with our "Photosets Social Network," 2.) there is NO cost for signing-up or using our Photosets Social Network, 3.) we're building two different, but very similar, versions of Photosets TV for Mac, one for Consumers (up-to 8 concurrent streams), and one for Businesses (up-to 16 concurrent streams), & 4.) we hope to have the Consumer version available for download by this time next week !

Photosets X is the camera front-end for both Photosets TV for Mac, as well as the Photosets Social Net.

We believe the Consumer version of Photosets TV for Mac has a fair chance to become a BIG hit around the Christmas tree, on Christmas Day, especially if you have young kids !

When our Photosets Social Network goes Live, you'll then be able to upload your Photoset Videos & your hand-picked Favorite Photoset Photos to it, via Photosets X, as well as Photosets TV for Mac !

If you're a Pro Photographer or a high-end Amateur Photographer AND you have an interest in HIGH-quality photos that have never been compressed, you're gonna absolutely Love what you're about to Discover !


11:30 AM (San Diego-time) update for Friday, November 17th: 

Today we are announcing that "Photosets TV for Mac," our first-ever non-iOS app, should become available for download in late-November ! ... it's a unique & innovative companion Media Player app for our Photosets X iOS app, and we intend to offer it ONLY via this website.

Late yesterday, we decided to go with a Mac version, instead of one or more set-top box versions, for various key reasons: i.) Significantly Higher Performance, especially when transferring UN-compressed photosets from Photosets X, ii.) many Macs are portable (thus it works well in the Field), iii.) many Photography Pros (already) have Macs, iv.) it's the smart "Business" move (for various reasons), and v.) it's the smart "long-term" R&D move (the specifics of this we're keeping in our back pocket, for now) ... please see our News webpage for additional information on all this.



Important Things to know about Photosets X

It's a combination (Burst mode) Camera, Editor / Playback Controller, Video Maker, & Video Story Maker.

It consists of three key sections, the Camera (in the Middle), Main (on the Left), & the Editor / Playback Controller (on the Right).

When you tap the camera's Start Button, you're "triggering" the start of a photoset capture operation.

For each photoset capture operation, the following parameters are determined by you: capture resolution, number of photos, photo capture rate, color space, & lens.

You can change the capture parameters anytime you want; you have FULL control of everything on a per-photoset basis.

Each capture operation represents a unique photoset, and is stored in it's own sub-directory.

Captured photosets are stored ONLY inside the app.

Embeds the all-important Display P3 ICC (color) profile into the metadata of captured "wide color" photos.

While Apple calls it "Wide Color," we call it LiveColor™, a more Female-friendly version of the same (what was Phil Shiller thinking ?).

In the Editor, you can Select / "Tag" up-to five Favorite photos per photoset.

Star, then Apply, then Save, for each photo you want to "tag" as a Favorite.

Star, then Reset, if you mess-up and want to Reset all the Favorite "tags" (for the selected photoset).

In the Editor, you can Trim-off any UN-wanted Begin and/or End photos (for the selected photoset).

In Main, you can make Videos from single photosets, & craft Video "Stories" from up-to 30 photosets.

Favorite photos will be Exported (as a group) with Videos from single photosets.

Offers Best-in-Class AirDrop support, both app-to-app, as well as app-to-Mac (and back).

Supports the iPad-oriented Slide Over and Split View features.

The Video Story feature can be used to craft innovative Vivid / Vibrant color Music Videos !

An especially good fit for Capturing & Presenting: i.) Sports Highlights, ii.) Female Photo Modeling & Fashion Shows, & iii.) Dynamic Nature Scenes.
