News Update : 11 AM Tuesday, August 16th, 2022

Five things to announce:

1.) Late yesterday, we decided to drop Photosets' Apple Silicon Mac support.

2.) This morning, we've Removed Photosets' two IAPs from Sale in the App Store.

3.) We intend to submit Photosets v9.59 to Apple App Review by 1 PM today.

4.) Later today, we'll be Kicking Off work on our first-ever Promotional & Educational Videos in which the Team acts as our Brand Ambassadors !

As we stated late yesterday, rather than continue to try to recruit select Females with Supermodel potential (& get them up to speed on Photosets & Photosets Studio), you'll see the Team in our Promotional & Educational Videos moving forward.

5.) As of today, we're now devoting 5% of our Daily Time & Energy towards our Court filing.

Make NO mistake, we have a chance to NOT ONLY be responsible for the Complete Break of Apple's App Store, but ALSO a Regime Change at Apple !


Regarding #1 & #2, strictly a business decision, & strictly our call.

Also, to play it safe, we assume there is a 50% chance Apple announces their own version of Photosets next month.

And we want to be as well-positioned as possible if they do.

Very speciically, if they do, it's going to put alot of visibility on Photosets & Our Story.

Perhaps our first real chance at Opportunity !

To our knowledge, every since they acquired SnappyCam back in late-Dec of 2013, Apple has never once Recommened OR Promoted a third-party Burst Photo Camera App in it's "curated" iOS App Store.

And a reminder, OR for those who are UN-aware, Photosets made its debut in the iOS App Store on June 10th, 2015, & first became a rare, true Flagship-caliber Burst Photo Camera App on the release date of the 2016 iPhone 7+.

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

We've missed-out BIG time !

App Store consumers have missed-out BIG time !

Time for us to Punch Back !

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 Professional-Quality Videos
crafted from Burst Photo Sets.

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