FYI, Head's Up, Photosets will transition back to a Paid app NO LATER THAN midnight tonight, Saturday, July 24th.

Plan accordingly.

App Store "Watchdog"

(Day 2)

Our Analysis tells us that Apple probably does NOT have ANY so-called "Editors" covering Photo & Video, & that Apple's picks are very-likely made by Apple's Marketing Dept !

The Data does NOT lie !

We believe this is something Congress should investigate.

At a MIN, it's more Ammo as to why Apple needs competition at least WRT "App Discovery" !


We believe Apple has both a Duty & a Responsibility to promote & recommend The Best Apps to "our mutual customers".

At least WRT the Photo & Video category, it should be Crystal Clear to ALL that they have Failed badly !

The Data does NOT lie !

We would NOT be surprised to learn that Phil Schiller alone made the call on ALL of the Photo & Video picks !

BREAKING NEWS: 2 PM (California-time) Saturday, July 24th, 2021

FYI, we've decided to Step Up our Efforts to try to obtain "ownership" of the first-ever "App Discovery" App Store !

It is afterall, our idea.

Make NO mistake, Apple will do whatever they can to try to prevent it from Getting Off the Ground.


First, some background, something that we've promoted for most of 2021.

Our Position on the iOS App Store

We are in favor of New Law that would require Apple to disclose per-Category Revenue Numbers for (at least) the iOS App Store here in the States, & require them to do so at the end of each work week.

Also, that the per-week per-Category Reports should include what percentage was generated by the Top 10 Apps in each category, as well as what percentage of apps in each category generated NO revenue.

So, three columns of data per Category, reported by Apple every week.

OK, but what makes this Breaking News ?

We've decided we'll make that a Core Attribute of our "App Discovery" App Store even BEFORE it becomes New Law !

Who wouldn't like the App Store to become more Transparent ?

We believe both App Developers & End Users will quickly flock to a more transparent App Store.

As a reminder, our "App Discovery" App Store is strictly for NON-Game native Apps with a MIN Age Requirement = 12 years old.

OK, but how do you make money ?

That's TBD, but we think 1/3 of Apple's cut is fair.

And, when they see the kind of Enthusiasm we've created, we believe they'll be glad to pay it.

OK, anything else make this Breaking News ?

Yes, we're going to let select public companies also participate with their Progressive Web "Game" Apps !

E.g., Microsoft, Facebook, & Netflix.

A few years ago, Apple pulled our Timmy app (from their "curated" iOS App Store), the ONLY per-Qtr, per-Device "iPhone Unit Sales Estimator" App on the planet, & told us to turn it into a Progressive Web App.

And, they gave us a Total BS Reason for pulling it !

So naturally, we'd like to Stick it to Them !

And fully intend to do so !

-----


Update for 10:30 AM (California-time) Saturday, July 24th, 2021

Two things to announce:

1.) There is a 50% chance we will submit Photosets v8.46 to Apple App Review by day's end today.

Among other things, it includes Important Enhancements & Refinements to the Burst Video Maker's ALL-important A/V Sync function !

2.) Moving forward, we've decided to offer Photosets for FREE 1-2 days per week, & as a Paid App priced at (ONLY) ONE U.S. BUCK 5-6 days per week.

We want to see if it's possible for Photosets to reach the Top of the Charts both for FREE apps & for Paid apps.

ONLY UN-Discovered Gem Apps, priced appropriately, have that potential.


The Important Thing to Know is that Photosets is very-likely the Single-Best UN-Discovered Gem App in the history of smartphones !

We never let Apple's Complete & Total Stranglehold on App Discovery slow us down !

Important Tips:

1.) If you're testing Photosets capture performance on an iPhone OR iPad that has been Idle for awhile, OR hasn't been used for anything performance-related lately, your Capture Performance won't meet Specs until AFTER your iPhone OR iPad has had a chance to "warm up".

And naturally, "warm up" is under iOS control.

As such, a few practice capture runs may be necessary to achieve Max Capture Performance.

2.) Apps in Background / Suspended State will limit your capture performance !

Such apps do NOT consume processor cycles, but they do consume precious Available DRAM.

3.) If you've got a Mac computer, we highly-recommend you Download & Try-Out our Photosets TV macOS app, it's our 100% FREE purpose-built companion app for Photosets.

Please note that Photosets TV is not yet a finished product.

However, it is 100% FREE with NO strings attached, & it supports our newest Flagship-caliber feature, Multi View Capture !

And, if the rumors are true, that the iPhone 13 family will support Wi-Fi 6E, Multi View Capture will very-likely become the first Prime Example that showcases its benefits !

See our Photosets TV webpage to download it.

Update for 10:30 AM (California-time) Friday, July 23rd, 2021

Three things to announce:

1.) Photosets v8.45 was Approved early today & is Available for Download.

We encourage everyone to begin using it ASAP.

Please note that ONLY those iPhones & iPads that get the "Advanced Tools" dialog will have access to, among other things, the new "Fireworks Mode".

Please see the relevant table below.

2.) We've Kicked Off R&D work on Photosets v8.46, & intend to submit it to Apple App Reivew by day's end on Sunday.

It adds the Enhanced & Refined Burst Video Maker A/V Sync function that we had hoped would make it into v8.45.

3.) Startng today, we're Kicking Off a brand-new Marketing Strategy.

Photosets is now a FREE app, & will remain so for up-to "48" hours !

And, it's a Strategy we (now) plan use AFTER each subsequent release !

A wise man once said,
"People don't flock to good cheap apps, they flock to good FREE apps !"

-----


Update for 2 PM (California-time) Thursday, July 22nd, 2021

Three things to announce:

1.) We intend to submit Photosets v8.45 to Apple App Review by day's end today.

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

Adds a brand-new Capture Mode, we call "Fireworks Mode" !

But it's NOT just for Capturing Fireworks, it's for anytime you want to Capture Max-size Burst Photo Sets in Rapid Succession (i.e., Back-to-Back with MIN setup delay between sets) !

That's NOT the BIG news with this Update, we've also Enhanced & Refined the Burst Video Maker's A/V Sync function !

2.) We've started "Anaylying the Performance" of Apple's App Store Editors !

For starters, their "Editor's Choice" & "App of the Year" recommendations.

Our initial Analysis tells us they've done a piss-poor job !

In fact, we've NOT convinced they have ANY App Store Editors covering Photo & Video.

Could simply be another Marketing Arm of Apple.

We intend to Tweet our Analysis Results every few days.

3.) Photosets has NO chance of hitting the Top of the Charts as a FREE app.

But, as a Paid App priced at ONLY ONE U.S. BUCK & Available ONLY via the iOS App Store here in the States, it absolutely does !

-----


Update for Midnight (California-time) Wednesday, July 21st, 2021

Does Apple have both a Duty & a Responsiblity to present & recommend
The Best Apps to iPhone & iPad owners ?

And if they Fail that Duty & Responsibility, can Apple be "legally charged" with
Suppression of Third-Party App Innovation ?

From our perspective, the Today tab of Apple's App Store App is the relevant data point.

It is where (we believe) Apple "should be" Doing the Right Thing.

However, it appears to be no more than a Marketing Arm of Apple.

And as such, (we believe) it is the best place to mount a case against Apple !

We leave it to the Reader to figure-out what this ALL means.

Those with sufficient IQ should have NO issues connecting the dots.


As a reminder, Apple's next Earnings Release is next Tuesday, July 27th.

Guess which Question OR Questions we hope to present to Tim Cook.

-----


Update for 10 AM (California-time) Tuesday, July 20th, 2021

FYI, 50% chance we submit Photosets v8.45 to Apple App Review by day's end.

Here is a Head's Up:

Adds a brand-new Capture Mode, we call "Fireworks Mode" !

It's NOT just for Capturing Fireworks, it's for anytime you want to Capture Max-size Burst Photo Sets in Rapid Succession (i.e., Back-to-Back with MIN setup delay between sets) !

-----


Update for 7:30 PM (California-time) Monday, July 19th, 2021

FYI, "Brave" by Sara Bareillis is our Song of the Day here @ Cosmosent Labs, Inc. !

If you've never heard it before, we highly recommend you give it a listen.

-----


Update for 6:30 PM (California-time) Monday, July 19th, 2021

FYI, we've been Asked & have Agreed, to devote some of our Time & Energy towards digging into Apple's legal battle with an App Developer group called the Coalition for App Fairness.

From what we've been able to determine today, Apple filed three subpoenas against the group, requesting access to private Documents & Communications.

Our own analysis tells us Apple has NO right to that information.

In fact, we consider it to simply be a (Bullying) Posturing Move by Apple, something we saw often with Donald Trump when he was President of our United States !

But, if Apple wants to take that route, we think we can use it to our advantage.

We believe they are setting Precedent !

Very specifically, we would like access to ALL of Apple's "private" Documents & Communcations related to our apps, & in particular, Photosets.

We think it's ONLY fair.

We will ask Congress for assistance.

And BTW, we believe we have an extremely legitimate case for requesting access to Apple's Photosets-related Documents & Communications.

-----


Update for 2:30 PM (California-time) Monday, July 19th, 2021

FYI, earlier today Apple released iOS 14.7 & the like.

That got us thinking.

Specifically, that Photosets' Benchmark Mode feature, which Measures & Records capture performance with a Real-World Test (as opposed to Synthetic Benchmarks used by GeekBench & the like), could & should be used by ALL iPhone owners to track ANY Performance Hit when upgrading to a newer version of iOS.

To do so, Users would need to Test Performance both just-BEFORE & AFTER upgrading to a newer version of iOS.

And very importantly, iOS does a piss-poor job of cleaning-up after itself when upgrading to a newer version of iOS.

We have NO idea why.

We've long considered it a Rookie Mistake on their part !

And BTW, we see the same thing whenever upgrading to a newer version of Photosets, which may OR may NOT be intentional.

Regardless, you'll actually need to use Photosets' Camera to FREE Up as much DRAM as possible (at a MIN, after upgrading to a newer version of iOS).

A few practice capture runs is typically sufficient.

Note that Benchmark Mode results are written into your Photosets/Benchmarks folder, which is accessible via your Files app.

And BTW, this is probably something else about Photosets that Apple does NOT want you to know about.



-----


BREAKING NEWS: 11 AM (California-time) Monday, July 19th, 2021

FYI, today we've Kicked Off a brand-new Marketing Campaign !

As a Head's Up, here's what we're now using for Photosets' Promotional Text in the iOS App Store:

Interested in an UN-Discovered Gem App "far superior" to ANYTHING Apple has ever promoted OR recommended in their "curated" iOS App Store ?

If YES, check it out ! ...


Those sufficiently Skilled in the Art should immediately realize the implications.

ALL others will need to wait & see how this plays-out.

July 27th is an important date for Apple.

Between now & then we expect to be "in the News"

Among other things, it will be interesting to see how the Markets respond.


We're NOT wiling to give Apple ANY more time To Do the Right Thing.

Time's Up !

-----


BREAKING NEWS:
1:30 PM (California-time) Saturday, July 17th, 2021

FYI, we just Discovered that Photosets v8.43, released a few days ago, is doing noticeably better in Mainland China than it is here in the United States !

-----


Update for 1 PM (California-time) Saturday, July 17th, 2021

FYI, we submitted Photosets v8.44 to Apple App Review by day's on Thursday, but they never reviewed it yesterday.

So, we pulled it from the Queue yesterday @ 6:45 PM, & RE-submitted it yesterday @ 9 PM with a new Build, which included additional Enhancements & Refinements.

It "should" get Reviewed today, but one never knows.

It should have gotten Reviewed yesterday, but didn't
 !


In the meantime, here is a Head's Up on the What's New Description for v8.44:

Hopefully we're NOT sounding like a Broken Record, but YES, this Update is another BIGGIE !

Among other things, the Burst Video Maker now supports up-to "60" independent Video Scenes, that's 1/3 more than before !

But, that's NOT the BIG news with this update, it's the brand-new per-Set "Share Manager" !

It offers you two Important Benefits:

i.) It's simply a much better solution than what Photosets had offered; now, much more Efficient & Effective !

ii.) It's based-upon the same Vertical Scrollview code that's used by the Burst Video Maker's (Video Scene) "Order Selection" feature.

That means once you Master one, you'll basically already know how to Master the other !

-----


Update for 1 PM (California-time) Thursday, July 15th, 2021

Two things to announce:


1.) We're On Track to submit Photosets v8.44 to Apple App Review by day's end !

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

We've added a better Folder option for managing individual Burst Photo Sets than using the Files app !

You can now scroll thru (& Manage) the Photos of a Set using a Veritical ScrollView that's similar to what's used for "Order Selection" in the app's Burst Video Maker.

When in the Home View, & assuming you've got at least one photo set in the app, simply tap the Share icon on the bottom toolbar, & then the appropriate per-Set button.


2.) We've received a number of inquires regarding our decision to transition Photosets to a 100% FREE app with NO Advertising & NO strings attached.

Rather than continue to answer them individually, we thought it best to make an official statement regarding our recent strategy pivot.

Photosets is the Most-Advanced & Highest-Performance Camera App in the history of smartphones, & has been a rare, true Flagship-caliber Burst Photo Camera App since the early days of the 2016 iPhone 7+.

There isn't another app on the planet that can capture up-to "40" Full-Res 12 Mpx HEVC-encoded Photos per Set with Perfect OR near-Perfect cycle-to-cycle Timing Performance !

Yet, has received NO love from Apple in their "curated" iOS App Store.

Why ?

We do NOT know the precise reason.

We would like Congress to investigate.

Apple has a history of NOT doing the right thing unless/until an issue is in the Public's Eye.

The most-likely reason is that they've been working on their own version of Photosets, using a BIG Tech strategy referred to as "Sherlocking".

Regardless, Photosets is now an Extremely Rare App, one that is both difficult to RE-produce, & (more importantly) one that is "primed" to take us to the next level.

And by that, we mean our recently-announced Burst Video version of YouTube & our recently-announced Photosets Services Division.

Moving forward, you can think of Photosets serving two purposes:

i.) As the tool for End Users to populate our Burst Video version of YouTube.

ii.) As the tool for our Photosets Services Division to populate our Burst Video version of YouTube.

The producer tool (i.e., Photosets) is Ready now !

You cant think of it as being 95% done.

Our Burst Video version of YouTube still needs more work, but is progressing well.

As such, we felt the time was right to Make & Announce our strategy pivot.

NO ONE should be surprised if our efforts become the Catalyst for the Break-Up of the iOS App Store.

Whether Intentional OR strictly due to Incompetence, it's NOT OK for Apple to suppress Third-Party App Innovation !

-----


Update for 12 Noon (California-time) Wednesday, July 14th, 2021

FYI, Photosets v8.43 was Approved earlier today & is now Available for Download !

We encourage everyone to Download it ASAP.

It represents a major strategy pivot for us.

One that we think ALL will like !

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 12 Noon (California-time) Tuesday, July 13th, 2021

FYI, today we are Announcing that we've established a Photosets Services Division inside Cosmosent Labs, Inc., that will produce High-End Promos & Ads for others !

It's a key part of our strategy for our Burst Video version of YouTube.

The key thing to know here, is that we'll be using the "exact same tools" that the General Public has access to.

More specifically, those who have the app's ONE & ONLY In-App Purchase (IAP), Burst Photo Pro.

You need the Burst Photo Pro IAP to get the 45-scene Burst Video Maker.


To celebrate today's Announcement, we've Dropped the Price of Burst Photo Pro to ONLY ONE U.S. BUCK !

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 9 AM (California-time) Monday, July 12th, 2021

FYI, we're making it Official, our Burst Video version of YouTube is now our Top Priority !

And, we hope to announce Corporate Partnerships by month's end !

Update for 7 PM (California-time) Sunday, July 11th, 2021

Two things to announce:


1.) We're On Track to Release Photosets v8.43 Tuesday OR Wednesday !

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

Important Enhancements & Refinements to the per-set Delete & Share support !

Available to you (via the Home View's bottom toolbar) whenever you have one or more photo sets in the app.


2.) Today we want to provide a Head's Up on something we've been working on in Secret.

You can think of it as a Burst Video version of YouTube, with an innovative twist for Content Producers !

Starting @ the top, Pole Position goes to whoever is able to Tell the Best Story, using Photosets' Camera & Video Maker.

#2 - #30 are the Runner Ups (listed in order).

We intend to present new Burst Videos on a Daily Basis.

And, it is strictly "curated" (to prevent cheating).


As a reminder, if you have Photosets' Burst Photo Pro IAP, you can craft Burst Videos with up-to "45" independent scenes, identical to what you see in today's fanciest TV commercials !

NOT a Pipe Dream, it's Available Today !

The important thing to know, is that the tool used to Produce Content, Photosets, is Ready Now !

And, it is by-far the more-challenging part of the solution.

BREAKING NEWS: 11 AM (California-time) Saturday, July 10th, 2021

FYI, we've been Asked, & have Agreed, to Fast Track the completion of our first-ever Photosets User Guide, in preparation for a Major Announcement.

It will also cover our companion macOS app, Photosets TV.

Our CEO, who developed most of the code in both apps, has agreed to write it.

A first-cut PDF could be out as early as Monday !

Update for 5 PM (California-time) Friday, July 9th, 2021

FYI, we've been in meetings ALL week long.

We'd now like to pass along two Take Aways from those meetings (i.e., what others are emphasizing to us):

1.) "The ONLY thing Photosets lacks is proper Marketing"

2.) "With proper Marketing, you have a Defensible revenue stream, which puts you in rare territory for a Tech Company without a prior investment"


We generally agree with #1.

We do, however, consider Photosets to be ONLY 95% completed.

We have a number of Enhancements & Refinements already in the works.

The significance of #2 was stressed repeatedly.

And that we should NOT UNDER-estimate its value OR impact.

Also, please note that we were UN-able to Agree to Terms with anyone this week.

But, that doesn't mean it won't happen soon.

The main sticking point is Valuation.

So, what does it ALL mean ?

We're now devoting 2/3 of the company's Time & Energy to Marketing !

Versus ~1% before.

Update for 12 Noon (California-time) Friday, July 9th, 2021

FYI, today we're working thru the Details of a Unique & Innovative "Use Case" for 7+ iPhones, that combines Photosets' Multi View Capture feature with our Innovative Twist on the (upcoming) Right to Repair Law.

It has significant Game Changer potential !

-----


Update for 3 PM (California-time) Wednesday, July 7th, 2021

FYI, we've decided to provide Our Recommendations to the FTC regarding the (upcoming) Right to Repair Law, so that additional Use Cases could also be covered.

We doubt anyone else is looking at it the way we are.

The Net Result, we hope to achieve First Mover Status in a brand new market.

One that leverages much of our previous work !

Update for 11:30 AM (California-time) Wednesday, July 7th, 2021

FYI, late yesterday we began using an Innovative Strategy tied to the (upcoming) Right to Repair Law to try to secure a first Institutional Investment.

Today we decided to make it Public.

NOT the strategy itself, just the fact that we're doing so.

But here's a hint:

Photosets is the Most-Advanced & Highest-Performance Camera App in the History of Smartphones.

Our new Innovative Strategy "builds-upon" what we've already accomplished !


As a reminder, OR for those who are UN-aware, Cosmosent Labs, Inc., is a small company of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, Electronic Engineers.

We ALL had 10+ years of Chip Design & Verification experience prior to transitioning into App Development.

Update for 8 PM (California-time) Tuesday, July 6th, 2021

FYI, we've decided to move our Rocket High-Performance Burst Photo Camera R&D Project from the Back-Burner to the Front-Burner.

The Catalyst for us doing so is the Right to Repair Law.

Update for 1 PM (California-time) Tuesday, July 6th, 2021

FYI, we've put the word out that we're looking for Recommendations for Third-Party iPhone Attachment Lenses, that would help us capture Surfing:

i.) 4x that attaches to the Back Wide Lens (26 mm -> 104 mm)

ii.) 2x that attaches to the Back Tele Lens (52 mm -> 104 mm)


If you have ANY recommendations, please let us know via email @ support@cosmosent.com.

Thanks in Advance !

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

FYI, today it hit us, to-date, Photosets has simply been presented to the wrong Audience !

Specifically, the Audience of the iOS App Store is NOT a good fit for Photosets.

More specifically, Photosets is simply too Unique & Innovative for the Audience of the iOS App Store, & that includes the App Store Editors !

As such, we've pivoted our Marketing to a Local Grass Roots Campaign here in San Diego:

Fireworks at Seaworld

Surfing at Windansea

Attractive Women in the Surf & on the Sand

Update for 7 PM (California-time) Sunday, July 4th, 2021

FYI, today we Kicked Off a clean-up & RE-design of our website.
