FYI, Photosets is Available ONLY via the iOS App Store here in the States.

And we've got a $1.9T USD reason to keep it that way !

Update for 11 AM (California-time) Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

The R&D Team wanted to give a Shout Out to Lexus, for announcing their 2022 Lexus IS 500 on Monday.

Other than the fact that peak HP isn't @ 6250 RPM & peak Torque isn't @ 2750 RPM, they Knocked It out of the Ballpark !

We would have preferred:

400 HP @ 6250 RPM (vs 472 HP @ 7100 RPM actual)

400 lb-ft @ 2750 RPM (vs 395 lb-ft @ 4800 RPM actual)

Makes it a better Daily Driver, & with better MPG numbers.

And it's mostly just a matter of Adjusting the camshaft profiles.

Make NO mistake, if priced right (i.e., ~$60K USD as we suspect), the 2022 Lexus IS 500 could go down in history as the last great "sleeper" sports sedan !

Its success may even force BMW & Mercedes to offer a similar Naturally Aspirated 5.0L V8 option in their M3 & 2022 C class, respectively.

-----


Update for 8 AM (California-time) Wednesday, February 24th, 2021

FYI, we've been making good daily progress with both Photosets v8.27 & the next Build, #55, of Photosets TV v1.0, & still looking to release both by week's end.

Upon their release, the entire company will be transitioning into Marketing on a temporary basis.

It's time to start promoting what we've accomplished.

-----


Update for 2 PM (California-time) Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021

FYI, we're now looking at end of this week, rather than mid-week, for the release of Photosets v8.27 & the next Build, #55, of Photosets TV v1.0.

Both updates are NON-trivial.

Please note that in addition to what we've described the past week OR so, we've ALSO been working on RE-surrecting support for the transfer of captured photos (residing in DRAM) from Photosets to Photosets TV.

In early February of 2018, AFTER devoting 3+ months to it, we decided to put it on the Back Burner, simply because we could NOT get it to work reliably.

It worked, just NOT reliably.

We tried everything we could think of back then.

Now, we're trying new things, helped in part by additional low-level network analysis tools.

The feature was originally called "Photosets TV," & it was simply a way to Off Load the photos of a photo set during photo capture.

In other words, the photo files were NOT written into NAND flash storage on the capturing iPhone OR iPad, ONLY on the Mac running the Photosets TV app.

And BTW, we kept ALL the relevant code in both Photosets & Photosets TV, & just disabled it to End Users, just as we normally do in such circumstances.

That makes moving Features & Capabilities like this from the Back Burner back to the Front Burner much easier.

If ALL continues to go well this week, the solution we're working on will NOT ONLY support the streaming of a camera's Live Preview, but ALSO the streaming of JPEG, HEIC, RGB2, & RGB3 burst photos directly from iOS DRAM during photo capture !

-----


Update for 9 PM (California-time) Sunday, February 21st, 2021

FYI, we're On Track to release Photosets v8.27 by mid-week.

It includes a first-cut of support for what we refer to as "2nd-Gen Multi View Capture".

As it currently stands, we're looking at offering Photosets TV v1.0 two ways, as a FREE app via this website, just as we've done in the past with previous Builds, & as a $5.99 USD Paid App via the Mac App Store.

Please note that we do have Strategy issues to resolve BEFORE releasing anything.

BREAKING NEWS: 9 AM (California-time) Saturday, February 20th, 2021

FYI, late yesterday afternoon we decided to sync-up Build #55 of Photosets TV v1.0, our ONE & ONLY macOS app, with the new Multi View Capture (MVC) feature in Photosets v8.27, & then, when done, to Release both concurrently !

So now, rather than ONLY supporting M1 Macs with this new feature, we'll be supporting ALL Macs !

But that's NOT the ONLY reason we've pivoted somewhat.

Photosets TV supports the streaming of Burst Photo Sets from Photosets !

And very specifically, directly from DRAM on iOS !

Unfortunately, after many months of working on it, we could NOT get it to work reliably.

So, we disabled the code in both Photosets & Photosets TV.

Now years later, we're RE-surrecting two independent features, & combining them into one (& with a twist):

Multi View Capture

Photosets TV


OK, but why ?

Simply put, by leveraging our earlier work, we can NOT ONLY make MVC a much more desirable feature, but we can ALSO Fast Track Its Completion !

And very specifically here, we're leveraging thousands of hours of (earlier) low-level Engineering work, & thousands of lines of (dormant) code !

We hope to release both updates on Monday !

-----


Update for 9 AM (California-time) Friday, February 19th, 2021

FYI, we intend to submit Photosets v8.27 to Apple App Review by day's end.

ALSO, different subject, we predict March 25th will be the Begining of the End for BIG Tech as we know it !

And we intend to do our part between now & then to prepare Congress as best as possible.

-----


Update for 11 AM (California-time) Thursday, February 18th, 2021

FYI, we did NOT submit Photosets v8.27 to Apple App Review by day's end yesterday as planned.

We "hope" to do so by day's end today.

There are both Technical & (BIG Picture) Strategy reasons for the delay.

And just to be crystal clear, Photosets' Multi View Capture (MVC) isn't multiple Camera views from one Apple mobile device.

It's strictly one Camera view PER Apple mobile device.

In other words, up-to three Apple mobile devices can participate in the "capture session," with ALL three under control of a single MVC Master.

That single MVC Master can either be an M1 Mac, running an instance of Photosets, OR an Apple mobile device.

Photosets' MVC enables both us & our End Users to cover anything from Amateur & Professional Sports to Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows (& the Like) in a Unique & Innovative Way !

Update for 1 PM (California-time) Wednesday, February 17th, 2021

FYI, we're On Track to submit Photosets v8.27 to Apple App Review by day's end !

It adds Multi View Capture support, which "could" soon become the key feature that Photosets becomes known for.

And NOT just because of WYSIWYG with v8.27, but ALSO because of what it offers, as a Platform, to both Us & Potential Partners, moving forward.

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 5 PM (California-time) Tuesday, February 16th, 2021

FYI, we've pivoted (somewhat) with what we had been calling M1 Photosets !

We're now back to calling it Multi View Capture (MVC), & we're now making the Master Controls generic, so that MVC supports both iOS & M1 Macs as Masters !

Very specifically, rather than develop the Master Controls around an M1 Mac, as we had intended, we're now developing the Master Controls around an 11 Pro Max in Landscape orientation.

This ensures that it will support both iOS & M1 Macs as Masters.

And, we've decided to simplify the UI to its Bare Bones minumum.

As you can see from the screenshot below, it supports up-to three Camera Views, where each Camera View will simply present a live stream of whatever the Camera is looking at.

There is a 10% chance we will be Ready to Submit this, as v8.27, to Apple App Review by day's end today.

90% of the code is leveraged from Photosets' original MVC feature, which had been in the app for more than a year.

We're basically just RE-doing the UI & Top Level Controls.


Advanced Settings Dialog for v8.27

(For iOS devices, Multi View Capture support can be set to either Master OR Slave, for Apple Silicon Macs, Multi View Capture support can ONLY be set to Master)

-----


Update for 12 Noon (California-time) Tuesday, February 16th, 2021

FYI, Photosets v8.27, out by week's end, will include support for the following:

Optional Concurrent Audio Capture

M1 Photosets

As a reminder, M1 Photosets enables you to use an instance of Photosets running on an M1 Mac to control the Camera Shutter on the instances of Photosets running on iOS.

It is an Enhanced version of a feature Photosets had years ago, called Multi-View Capture.

We removed it because it was complicating the User Interface.

Also, please note that we will make every attempt possible to ALSO include a first-cut of M1 Photosets TV in v8.27.

As a reminder, while M1 Photosets works with an instance of Photosets running on an M1 Mac, M1 Photosets TV works with the M1 Mac version of our Photosets TV app.

If it ALL seems complicated, it's NOT.

And, we're working on a Video Tutorial to help guide Users through it.

-----


Update for 8 PM (California-time) Monday, February 15th, 2021

FYI, we've just Released a New Build of Photosets TV v1.0 !

This one is Build #54 & it has an Install Deadline of Midnight on February 28th.

If you install it prior to its Install Deadline, you can then use it for 30 days, & naturally with NO Strings Attached.

As a reminder, Photosets TV is our 100% FREE macOS app.

It is intended to be used (strictly) as a companion to our Photosets iOS app.

Please see our Photosets TV webpage to download it.

Please note that Build #54 does NOT support Photosets' RGB3 format.

We intend to add support for it in a subsequent Build.

-----

Update for 5 PM (California-time) Monday, February 15th, 2021

FYI, we're On Track to submit Photosets v8.27, what we refer to internally as our "Stormbreaker" Edition, to Apple App Review by week's end !

For a Head's Up, please see the tail-end of our Features & Capabilities table on our Photosets webpage.

-----


Update for 9 AM (California-time) Monday, February 15th, 2021

FYI, Photosets v8.26 has been Released & is Available for Download WW !

It includes Brand-New Additonal Secret Sauce Code in the Camera's Capture Pipeline, that takes it to a New, Higher Level !

Make NO Mistake, Photosets v8.26 has Rare, True Game Changer Potential !


-----


Update for 9 AM (California-time) Sunday, February 14th, 2021

FYI, we're On Track to submit Photosets v8.26 to Apple App Review by 12 Noon today.

As such, there is a chance it gets Reviewed & Approved later today.

As such, there is a chance it becomes Available for Download later today.

Internally, we're referring to v8.26 as our "More Power Rabbit" Edition.

The significance of that should become obvious to most upon Release.

If NOT, here's a hint, we're referring to v8.27 as our "Stormbreaker" Edition.


Also, different subject, we simply cannot remember the last time Tim Cook's Apple recommended a
"High-Tech" Third-Party App in the Today tab of it's App Store App.

-----


FYI, Photosets is Available ONLY via the iOS App Store here in the States.

-----


Important Note:

FYI, the Base FREE version of Photosets is a Comprehensive Flagship-caliber Burst Photo Camera App with ONLY a single drawback, photos are Watermarked during capture.

The "NO Watermark" In-App Purchase (IAP) NOT ONLY prevents the Default Watermark from being added during photo capture, but it ALSO enables you to add your own Custom Watermark during photo capture whenever so desired.

And just as importantly, with the "NO Watermark" IAP, whenever you choose NOT to add your own Custom Watermark during photo capture, each photo set's capture cycle is up-to 2x-3x FASTER !

This is because it takes considerable time to add ANY Watermark during photo capture.

You can think of the "NO Watermark" IAP as a "Pro" IAP with a innovative twist.

It enables you to Try Out ALL Features & Capabilities of the app with ONLY a single drawback.

Photosets made its Debut in the iOS App Store on June 10, 2015.

Photosets as a Platform will make its Debut soon.

What (currently) makes Photosets "Special" is its High Cycle-to-Cycle Capture Timing Performance, which enables "sets" captured by the app's Camera, to be used (effectively) to Make OR Craft Burst Videos.

That & the fact that it is a Comprehensive Flagship-caliber Burst Photo Camera App !

It is Photosets' Secret Sauce Camera Code that makes it ALL possible !

Timmy

----------


Timmy is our per-Qtr, per-Device iPhone Unit Sales (Estimator) App.

It made its Debut in the iOS App Store in May of 2018.

On November 1st, 2018, Apple announced that they would Stop Reporting iPhone Unit Sales.

Apple pulled Timmy from their iOS App Store on Sept 9th, 2019, the day BEFORE their BIG 2019 iPhone Announcement.

Very-likely, we believe, because its Estimates were too close for comfort for Tim Cook.

The reason they gave us for pulling it was Total BS !

Timmy is NOT on the Back Burner, nor is it on the Front Burner, somewhere in-between.

Simply put, we work on Timmy v2.0 as best we can as time allows.
