News Update : 9:30 AM Saturday, May 28th, 2022

FYI, the Team will head to Silicon Valley on Sunday, June 5th, in preparation for Speaking in Court in Oakland on June 7th.

Between now & then we'll be devoting most of our time towards preparing for it.

As a reminder, OR for those who are UN-aware, June 7th is when App Devs like us who have Objected to Apple's proposed $100M USD Settlement Agreement get to speak in court to help make their case.

Among other things, we intend to make it Crystal Clear to the Court that Apple has NO so-called App Store Editors, that Tim, Phil, & Matt, have very-likely been making ALL the recommendations on their own, & that Apple's "App Discovery" Team is run by their Business Development Dept.

Furthermore, that Apple intentionally suppresses third-party App Innovation, & in particular, when they are Leapfrogged in both Technology & Applications by a third-party App.

And that they've been able to get away with it simply because they have NO "App Discovery" competition, & because they have Full Control of, & provide NO transparency of, the In App Ratings Dialog.

Furthermore, that Apple never compensated us OR iPhone owners WRT "Phil's Bug".

i.e., the A11/A12 Performance Controller Chip Bug that we discovered the first minute we ran Photosets on an A11/A12-based iPhone !

June 7th represents our first real chance to tell Our Story.

And we intend to take Full Advantage of it.

Any interest in the Single-Best UN-Discovered Gem in the App Store ?

Lots of Camera Apps in the App Store, but ONLY ONE with a "High-Precision" Capture Engine ! ...

And BTW, it's Photosets' High-Performance, High-Precision Burst Photo Capture Engine that enables You, if you so desire, to make Professional-grade Video Scenes from your Burst Photo Sets !

-----


Important Note:

Photosets' "Video Maker Pro" IAP is NO longer available for purchase.

We're now moving forward with an Uber/Lyft/DoorDash-style Video Maker Service (VMS) that leverages the Features & Capabilities of "what had been" Photosets' Video Maker Pro IAP.

In the near future, those who will be participating in our Service will need to create a Photosets VMS User Account, which will automatically UN-lock the Features & Capabilities of "what had been" the IAP whenever logged-in on their iPhone.

Don't let Photosets' lack-of-success in Apple's "curated" iOS App Store fool you.

If Apple had "App Discovery" competition, Photosets would be a Household Name !

Updated Camera Settings Dialog for Photosets v9.49

(Target Capture Duration now in seconds, instead of photos per set)

[v9.49 will also include Refinements to the ProRes 422 HQ Video Capture support, the app's ONLY Video Capture feature]


-----


FYI, Photosets' Video Maker Pro IAP controls the "40" & "60" Photos per Set options in the Camera Settings dialog, which you'll need to make Professional-grade short-scene multi-scene Videos.

From a High-Level Perspective, the IAP enables you to capture Burst Photo Sets that are twice as long, & as such, craft Video Scenes from them that are twice as long.

Specifically, "60" photos per set & 2-second Video Scenes,
vs. "30" photos per set & 1-second Video Scenes.

Please see the High-Level Overview & Capture Limits by Device tables below.

FYI, we recently coined a brand-new term, #AppStoreSupermodel !

Soon, that, & #BurstPhotoModeling, will become synonymous with Photosets :) ! ...

Photosets'
Video Maker Pro IAP

(NO longer available for purchase)

On Tier 1 iPhones & iPads, the IAP controls the app's ability to capture more than "30" photos per set.

Specifically, the ability to set the "40" & "60" photos per set options in the Camera Settings dialog.

As such, you'll need the IAP to make Professional-grade short-scene multi-scene Videos.

i.e., where each Video Scene is 1.5 - 2.0 seconds in duration !

The important thing to know is that the IAP controls a key part of the Camera's Capture Engine.

Specifically, how many Photos per Set can by Captured by the Camera, which directly correlates to Video Scene "duration".

For the details, please scroll down to the relevant tables below.

One of the most-important things to know about Photosets is:

1.) 4K photos are Image Stabilized,

2.) Full-Res 12 Mpx & 8 Mpx photos are NOT.

As such, if your Objective is to (also) Make Videos
from your captured Burst Photo Sets,
you'll need to consider your options beforehand.

Photosets' camera captures with Perfect
OR near-Perfect cycle-to-cycle Capture Timing Performance.

Which is the Best in the Industry !

However, that alone isn't sufficient to guarantee High-Quality Videos
crafted from Burst Photo Sets.

Either Image Stabilization OR a Tripod OR Monopod is also needed.
