-----


FYI, v8.9, Approved Monday, Oct 26th, is Photosets' 253rd App Approval !

We've devoted over 20,000 R&D hours into it over the past six years, but we need your help to get it off the ground in the iOS App Store.

If possible, please Rate & Review the app if/when prompted by Photosets.

Photosets will make two & ONLY two "Ratings Requests":

1.) A first request AFTER you capture "75" OR more total photos (over 3-5 photo sets), & then transition to the Home View.

2.) A second request AFTER you make a first Burst Video, & then transition to the Home View.

Please note that whether a Ratings Request is made OR NOT, is completely under Apple's control.

Like ALL apps, Photosets has ZERO control over it.

Thanks in Advance if you're able to help us out !

BTW, those who Write a Review (early) deserve Bragging Rights, for helping Discover an UN-Discovered Gem in the iOS App Store !

We're working on a Proposal to Apple that would Highlight the User Names of such Users, in their Reviews.

And, ONLY for those who Help Discover UN-Discover Gem Apps !

Think of it as your User Name "in lights" in the iOS App Store !

For example, applicable to the first 500 4-star OR better Reviews, for ANY app that was UN-Discovered, & then becomes Popular within the next month.

Update for 8 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Thursday, Oct 29th, 2020

We're On Track to submit Photosets v8.10 to Apple App Review by day's end !

It includes a number of Important Enhancements & Refinements.

Most imporantly, we RE-designed & RE-factored both the Camera Settings & the In-App Settings Dialogs.

Also, the Camera Control functionality of the Capture Resolution / Color Space slider on the Home View has been incorporated into the two Dialogs.

Our primary intent was simply to try to make the Camera Easier to Use & Less Intimidating.

Our secondary intent was to make the Camera Controls consistent across ALL the Premium 2019 & 2020 iPhones, including when in Landscape orientation.

Here is a Head's Up.

Update for 10 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Tuesday, Oct 27th, 2020

Three things to announce:

1.) We're On Track to submit Photosets v8.10 to Apple App Review by day's end on Thursday !

On most newer iPhones, Photosets v8.9 offers you (FREE) RAW DNG "Burst Photo" Capture support !

v8.10 adds (FREE) "Single Shot" RAW DNG Capture support !

See yesterday's News Update for Additional Details.

2.) We've been Asked, & have Agreed, to add support for the following languages into Photosets:

Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese, Spanish, & Traditional Chinese

3.) We're now devoting 50% of our Time & Energy on our first-ever Photosets Marketing Campaign !

Our intent is simply to Showcase ALL the great things that Photosets is capable of.

-----


Update for 11 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Monday, Oct 26th, 2020

FYI, today we've Kicked Off work on an Important Enhancement to Photosets' recently-updated RAW DNG Capture support !

Specifically, if ALL goes well, you'll soon be able to capture a set's worth of RAW DNG photos, where you trigger each individual photo capture, either via the Camera's Shutter Button, OR via an External Shutter Action (i.e., via your Wired Headphone Audio Conrols) !

As such, you'll NOT ONLY be able to capture a Burst of RAW DNG photos, up-to "15" photos per set, which is supported in v8.9, but ALSO a set's worth of Single Shot RAW DNG photos (again, up-tp "15" photos per set).

If ALL goes well, this enhancement will go into Photosets v8.10, out by week's end ?

As a reminder, RAW DNG Capture is ideal when Shadows AND/OR Highlights are present in, OR around, the photo subject.

-----


Update for 8 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Monday, Oct 26th, 2020

FYI, Photosets v8.9 is "Waiting for Review" at Apple App Review, & as such, could become Available later today !

Here is a Head's Up on the What's New description:

Important "RAW DNG Burst Photo Capture" Refinements & Bug Fixes !

Post capture, you can View your RAW DNG Burst Photo Sets via the Main Menu's "Mange RAW DNG" option, & View "the companion" HEIC Burst Photo Set in the same manner as any other captured JPEG OR HEIC burst photo set (i.e., via the Editor).

As a reminder, Photosets supports RAW DNG Burst Photo Capture ONLY on the Back Wide Camera on the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, 12, & 12 Pro.

You do NOT need the Pro IAP for this feature !

-----


Update for 5 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Thursday, Oct 22nd, 2020

FYI, CNBC is reporting this morning that Quibi intends to sell its assets.

We're interested !

Specifically, if we added what they have to what we already have with Photosets, then we'd be able to (almost-immediately) offer a Next-Gen YouTube OR Instagram to the General Public !

To date, few have realized that Photosets is simply "a Tool" for crafting Unique & Innovative content.

More specifically, anyone with sufficient skill (& the right iPhone) can use it to craft multi-scene Videos, the type of Videos you (typically) see in High-End / Expensive TV commercials, including in Hollywood Movie Trailers !

Also, it was reported yesterday that Quibi has $850M USD in cash, & that they intend to return it to shareholders.

As such, rather than try to convince a VC of our worth (& the value of our strategy), today we've decided to try to cut a deal directly with Quibi, in which we obtain NOT ONLY their assets, but ALSO a small portion of their Cash on Hand, in exchange for a piece of "our action".

Most would consider us to be a NOBODY at this point.

But that's ONLY because Apple has a Complete & Total Stranglehold on App Discovery in their "curated" iOS App Store, & because they Completely Control the Narrative in the App Store.

Otherwise, you would have heard about Photosets years ago !

Photosets has been a rare, true Flagship-caliber Burst Photo Camera App since the early days of the 2016 iPhone 7+ !

But most importantly, Photosets has NO direct competition, & that includes from Apple !

Those (sufficiently) Skilled in the Art should appreciate the significance.

Nothing else needs to be said.

-----


Update for 12 Noon (La Jolla, CA-time) Wednesday, Oct 21st, 2020

FYI, two things to announce:

1.) We're now actively pursuing our first-ever VC investment !

2.) We're On Track to submit Photosets v8.8 to Apple App Review by day's end !

As a reminder, Photosets' original name was HSPM, for High-Speed Photo Modeling.

The app was developed originally for Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows !

Few know that !


OK, but why do we (now) mention it ?

Because it's Integral to what we're "now" up to !

Ask yourself, if you've got an UN-Discovered Gem (Camera App) in the iOS App Store, what's the Best Way to Circumvent "Apple's Stranglehold on App Discovery" ?

We leave it to the Reader to figure-out the Answer to that Question.

We've given you a Good Hint !


As a reminder, Photosets supports the capture of Full-Res 12 Mpx photos @ 30 fps, including with HEVC-based Image Compression (i.e., HEIC photos).

And because it captures with Perfect OR near-Perfect cycle-to-cycle timing, photo sets captured by Photosets can be used to craft multi-scene Videos, with up-to "30" independent Video scenes !

Photosets ALSO supports the concurrent capture of Audio, which can be added to the Video scenes !

Make NO mistake, Photosets is the very definition of an UN-Discovered Gem App !

-----


Update for 11 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Monday, Oct 19th, 2020

FYI, we're On Track to submit Photosets v8.8 to Apple App Review by week's end !

It builds-upon the Enhancements & Refinements added in v8.7 !

See the News Updates below for the Details.

It's a BIGGIE, perhaps our BIGGEST update yet !

Also, while we can make NO promises (that things will work perfectly), & cannot yet promote it in the iOS App Store, we've added-in a 1st cut of support for ALL four iPhone 12 models, plus the 2020 iPad Air 4 !

Update for 1 PM (La Jolla, CA-time) Thursday, Oct 15th, 2020

FYI, we're On Track to submit Photosets v8.7 to Apple App Review later today !

As such, it could become Available for Download tomorrow !

It's a BIGGIE, perhaps our BIGGEST update yet !

While we can make NO promises, & cannot yet promote it in the iOS App Store, we've added-in a 1st cut of support for ALL four iPhone 12 models, plus the 2020 iPad Air 4 !

See the News Updates below for an additional Head's Up.

-----


Update for 1 PM (La Jolla, CA-time) Wednesday, Oct 14th, 2020

FYI, we've just made an Important Change, that goes into affect with Photosets v8.7, out tomorrow ?

Specifically, the "Special Treatment" Threshold / Demarc is now:

A13 OR newer A-series processor

3.5 GB OR more of DRAM

Support for 4K Cinematic Stabilization


As such, ONLY the following "seven" Apple mobile devices now qualify to receive "Special Treatment" from Photosets:

iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max,

iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, & iPhone 12 Pro Max

-----


Update for 7 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Tuesday, Oct 13th, 2020

Three things to announce today:

1.) We intend to submit a new Build of Photosets v8.7 to Apple App Review later today, that incorporates as much support as possible for the following yet-to-be-Released products:

iPhone 12 mini, 12, 12 Pro, & 12 Pro Max

2020 iPad Air 4

As a reminder, OR for those who are UN-aware, "Release" means the day a product first becomes available "for purchase".

It does NOT mean the day a product was OR is Announced.

Like most, we do expect the 2020 iPad Air 4 to be Released today.

2.) We've folded Photosets' ONE & ONLY In-App Purchase, "Pro," into the Base version of the app !

We made this change early yesterday, & the Build we uploaded to Apple yesterday already has all the necessary code changes !

v8.7 represents the Kick Off of a brand-new Business Strategy for us !

We hope to soon Announce our first-ever Institutional Investment !

3.) There is a 50% chance v8.7 will include RGB3 support !

-----


Update for 6:30 PM (La Jolla, CA-time) Monday, Oct 12th, 2020

FYI, we intend to submit Photosets v8.7 to Apple App Review by day's end tomorrow.

The updated code has already been uploaded to the App Store !

Updated iOS App Store "Window Dressing" is the ONLY thing currently holding it back.

Here is a Head's Up :

Our theme for this update is "Wake-Up & Warm-Up".

Adds Intelligent Camera Startup™ support !

Make NO Mistake, this update has Game Changer potential (for multiple reasons) !


Also, we've decided to Hold-Off on releasing RGB3 support until the next update.

Here is a Head's-Up:

Adds a first-cut of 3rd-Gen UN-comp. RGB support (i.e., RGB3) !

As a reminder, UN-comp. RGB is the Highest-Quality Possible in High-Speed Mobile Burst Photography !

Specifically, RGB3 is 8-bits of Red, Green, & Blue, per Pixel, in the P3 D65 (i.e., Display P3) color space, with NO Image compression, but with Data compression (to reduce file size), & now, with RGB3, per-Photo Metadata !


Please see the relevant Table below.

BREAKING NEWS: 10 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Friday, Oct 9th, 2020

Three things to announce:

1.) It just hit us that Photosets has now had "250" Total iOS App Store "Review Approvals" !

v1.0 + 249 updates !

"250" Total App Approvals for One Single App could be a Record in the iOS App Store !

2.) Today we are publicly starting that we have serious doubts that the iPhone 12 family will be a market success.

We do NOT see 5G as a catalyst !

As such, we believe Apple better have something else up their sleeves to announce on Tuesday, much more than Dolby Vision video capture, which we consider to be a solid B+ addition, otherwise, there is a fair chance the iPhone 12 family will flop !

Photosets is the catalyst that Apple needs !

Fine-tuned over a six year (plus) span !

It has NO direct competitor !

And that includes Apple !


BTW, we see two possible options for Apple's Dolby Vision video capture implementation:

10-bit P3 D65 capture packaged in a 10-bit Rec.2020 container (B+).

10-bit Rec.2020 capture in a 10-bit Rec.2020 container (B+).


3.) In addition to what was described earlier today, Photosets v8.7 will include an additional Fine-Tune Adjustment to the Camera, that will Improve Capture Performance on iPhones & iPads that had been Idle before using Photosets !

Something entirely new !

Something that ONLY Photosets is capable of !

-----


Update for 7 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Friday, Oct 9th, 2020

FYI, we're On Track to submit Photosets v8.7 to Apple App Review by day's end on Sunday !

In adds a first-cut of support for .rgb3 !

1.) We wanted to show where we're now spending our R&D Time & Energy.

2.) We've Kicked Off work on Photosets' In-App "Lesson #2," which we call:

Dedicated Burst Photo DRAM

Here is a Head's-Up, before it's out (in Detail) in v8.6.

What is it ?

It's the amount of "dedicated" DRAM available for Burst Photo Capture.

Why is it Important ?

It's the Single-Most Important Factor that determines Capture Performance !

More specifically, when the Camera is first started up.

UN-fortunately, iPhones & iPads have NO Dedicated Burst Photo DRAM !

So then, what can be done to Improve & Maximize Performance on an iPhone OR iPad ?

Knowledge is Key !

More specifically, knowing how to use "the Tools" that Photosets provides to your advantage !

For starters, see Lesson & Tip #1 INSIDE the app.

Next, please carefully read & consider the following Disclaimer:

Apps in Background / Suspended State do NOT consumer processor cycles, but they do consume precious Available DRAM.

As such, they will limit your Capture Performance !

Finally, feel free to Experiment with the (new) "Power User" switch in the In App Settings Dialog.

This switch was added in v8.5.

When the Power User switch is set to ON, Photosets performs an additional task (when starting-up the Camera) to try to help Wake Up & Warm Up your A-series processor for High-Perf Burst Photo Capture !

It does add alittle extra startup delay, however, so it is OFF by default.


3.) We've decided to craft our own "Recommendations for New Antitrust Laws" !

When done, we'll present them to Congress !

The time is right for us to act !

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 2 PM (La Jolla, CA-time) Tuesday, Oct 6th, 2020

FYI, effective today, we are now ALSO devoting 20% of our R&D Time & Energy towards porting Photosets' 30-Scene Burst Video Maker to Photosets TV !

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 7 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Tuesday, Oct 6th, 2020

FYI, effective today, we are now devoting 20% of our R&D Time & Energy towards Rocket, our near-future 10-bit color Burst Photo Camera !

From a High Level Perspective, you can think of Rocket as simply a Higher-Performance version of Photosets.

Please see our "Rocket" webpage for a Head's-Up.

-----


Update for 11 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Monday, Oct 5th, 2020

FYI, Photosets TV v1.0 Build # 49 is now Available for Download !

The Install Deadline is Midnight on Halloween.

-----


Update for 10 AM (La Jolla, CA-time) Sunday, Oct 4th, 2020

FYI, we're On Track to submit Photosets v8.5 to Apple App Review by day's end.

It includes Important Camera Performance & User Interface (UI) Improvements !


Also, while NOT new, we're now RE-emphasizing Photosets' 30-Scene Burst Video Maker.

For one, it helps differentiate Photosets from ALL other (Burst Photo) Camera Apps !

It ALSO helps promote the app's ONE & ONLY In-App Purchase (IAP), "Pro," as Videos crafted from photo sets consisting of "45" photos per set are simply much-more-appealing, than Videos crafted from photo sets consisting of (ONLY) "30" photos per set.

The limits:

With the "Pro" IAP: 30 scenes x 1.5-seconds/scene = 45 seconds total duration !

Without the "Pro" IAP: 30 scenes x 1.0-seconds/scene = 30 seconds total duration


As a reminder, you select the order of the Video Scenes !

This offers you lots of Freedom & Flexibility to "Tell Whatever Story" you want to !
