Cosmosent "Home"



Disclaimer: Photosets "may" be difficult for some to Master.

It is an Extreme Performance Burst Photo Camera App, UN-like ANY other Camera App in ANY app store.

On ALL eleven iPhones with 3 GB OR more of DRAM, it offers you Full-Res 12 Mpx Burst Photo Capture @ 30 fps !

OR 8 Mpx OR 4K on a per-photo set basis, you decide.

And that's with JPEG OR HEIC selection on a per-photo set basis, you decide.

You even have the the option of adding your own Custom Watermark during Capture !

Mastering the functionality controlled by the "Power User" & "Intelligent Startup" switches (both OFF by Default) is the Key First Step to Mastering the App.

Please note that Photosets now includes support for a brand-new In-App Purchase, "NO Watermark," which directly controls the app's Default Watermark support.

Specifically, it is needed to Disable the Default Watermark during photo capture.

It is ALSO needed to optionally add your own Custom Watermark added during photo capture.

Please ALSO note that the "NO Watermark" IAP does support Family Sharing.

-----


Update for 7 AM (California-time) Tuesday, January 26th, 2020

FYI, Photosets v8.23, out later today ?, represents another important pivot for the app.

With v8.22, we dropped the app's ONE & ONLY In-App Purchase, "Pro," & folded most of its Features & Capabilities into the Base FREE version of the app.

However, we ALSO made it so that the ONLY way to get rid of the Default Watermark was to Rate & Review the app.

A day OR two AFTER the release of v8.22 we concluded that simply wasn't ideal.

v8.23 builds-upon v8.22 and represents what we believe to be ideal.

Specifically, it includes support for a brand-new In-App Purchase, "NO Watermark," that directly controls the app's Default Watermark support, as well as enabling Users to optionally add their own Custom Watermark during photo capture.

Please note that while the "NO Watermark" IAP is already Live in the App Store, it goes Live in the app starting with v8.23.

-----


Update for 11:30 AM (California-time) Saturday, January 23rd, 2020

FYI, we want to make one point Crystal Clear regarding our New Business Strategy.

We decided to make Photosets a FREE app so that (some) Users could (potentially) Master the App BEFORE we Officially Kick-Off our "Video Ad" Service offering.

We believe that could potentially create a nice Talent Pool from which to Recruit.

Our intent is to put us in a position to Get the Ball Rolling Faster from The Get Go.

And very specifically, we'll be using the Gig Economy framework, identical to what Uber & Lyft use.

Also, the plan is to offer our Multi-Scene Shoft Form Video Ad Service here in the States first, & then expand globally 3-6 months later.


And last but NOT least, because this represents rare, "true" Innovation, we expect NO help from Apple.

We are convinced Apple simply does NOT want the General Public knowing that a small California-based company has OUT-Engineered & OUT-Strategized their $2.3T USD market cap company.

Regardless, the Cat will soon be Out of the Bag, so they will (soon) be forced to Fess Up.

We will begin pitching Our Story to select Top Tier VCs here in Silicon Valley this weekend !

NON of it will be under NON-Disclosure, so Word will Spread.

We believe at least $500B USD of Apple's market cap is Ripe for the Taking.

And with help from a Corp Partner AND/OR Top-Tier VC AND/OR SPAC, we believe we can get some portion of that.

As a reminder, most of the Team grew up here in Silicon Valley.


Go Pack Go !

Update for 9:30 AM (California-time) Friday, January 22nd, 2020

FYI, now that Photosets v8.22 has been Released, we're pivoting to The BIG Picture.

Specifically, for us, it means positioning ourselves to become the Uber / Lyft of "Video Ad" Business Services.

From a high level perspective, you can think of Photosets as "the vehicle" (i.e., custom tool) that makes it possible !


Do you think 10% OR so of those who Buy a "Pro" "iPhone every year OR two would like to be able to Write It Off ?

We certainly think so.

And, we'll be offering up potentially the very first option for doing so to the General Public.

We believe that will provide the initial incentive for many to consider our Business Proposition.

Developing skills as a Video Editor, & potentially making good money from it, should provide lasting incentive.


Ultimately, we'll need to pivot to Rocket because Photosets on a "Pro" iPhone is just NOT high-performance enough for our needs.

But for now, Photosets will suffice.

And most importantly, it's Ready to Go now !


And for comparison purposes, for those of you who know cars, you can think of Photosets on a "Pro" iPhone as a 911 S, AND Rocket as a 911 GT3.

And very specifically, it's custom tools that makes it ALL possible !

And last but NOT least, we are Lightyears ahead of Apple, Google, & Facebook, in our area of expertise.

We just need to find One Top Tier VC worth their salt to Help Us quickly Get the Ball Rolling.

-----


Update for 2:30 PM (California-time) Thursday, January 21st, 2020

FYI, we've decided to make Pollination Education our First Cause, & we're gonna start with Monarch Butterflies.

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 8:30 AM (California-time) Thursday, January 21st, 2020

FYI, Photosets is now 100% FREE & with NO strings attached !

We've decided to let 1M Users get v8.22+ for FREE !

That's Downloads + Updates.

We'll reassess when it crosses the 1M threshold.

If word gets out, that could happen in just a few days !

Please note that Photosets is Available ONLY via the iOS App Store here in the States.

v8.22 could become Available as early as later today.

-----


Update for 8 AM (California-time) Wednesday, January 20th, 2020

FYI, we intend to submit Photosets v8.22 to Apple App Review by day's end on Thursday.

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

Two Key Enhancements !

1.) The Default Watermark is NO longer added during capture AFTER you've Rated & Reviewed the App !

2.) Support for capturing "40" photos per set (@ 30 fps) is enabled AFTER you've Rated & Reviewed the App !

Please note that Photosets supports capturing "40" photos per set (@ 30 fps) ONLY on the following 12 Apple mobile devices:

iPhones: 7+, 8+, Xs, Xs Max, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, 12 mini, 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max

iPads: 2020 Air 4

-----


Update for 2 PM (California-time) Tuesday, January 19th, 2020

Today, we want to provide some Hints as to What we're Brewing.

And we'll use a Q&A approach.

Why did Quibi Fail ?

They invested ONLY in Content, instead of in Custom Tools that could be used to craft Unique & Innovative Content !

Is it really that simple ?

Yes, to us it is.

They showed-up late to the party, with NO Unique OR Innovative Content.

Are you implying you could become a Next-Gen version of Quibi ?

Yes we are !

But with an entirely different Business Strategy & Model.

You can think of it as a "multi-scene" Short Form Burst Video Ad Service.

Photosets currently supports up-to "30" scenes per Video.

v8.21 Raised the Bar even Higher by adding support for Appending a Slideshow at the End of ANY Video, where Favorite Tagged Photos are presented with a 1:1 correspondnece between Video Scenes & Slideshow Scenes.

You can think of it as a More Eye Catching Way to Tell a Story.

-----


Update for 9 AM (California-time) Tuesday, January 19th, 2020

FYI, Photosets v8.21 is "Waiting for Review," & as such, "could" become Available for Download later today.

Please note that we kept three Premium / Flagship-caliber features for ourselves:

1.) The ability to capture 40 photos per set.

2.) The ability to capture UN-compressed photos (i.e., RGB2/RGB3).

3.) The ability to concurrently capture Audio (& use the captured Audio Data in the Video Maker).

We intend to create a Multi-Billion Dollar "Video Ad" Services Division with these three !

ALL three had previously required the "Pro" IAP.

-----


Update for 12:30 PM (California-time) Sunday, January 17th, 2020

FYI, we just wanted to add that we "could" be the very-first to Realize / Discover what we did earlier today.

And, that it's very-likely an UN-intended Benefit (for companies like us) of Apple's IDFA privacy change.

The market ONLY needs One Prime Example, to immediately pivot to A New Way Of Thinking.

Hopefully, we soon become The Prime Example !

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 10 AM (California-time) Sunday, January 17th, 2020

FYI, reading between the lines of Bumble's S-1, we've just realized that Apple's upcoming IDFA privacy change will very-likely become a Catalyst for Angel Investors & VCs to pivot their interest back to mostly UN-known, yet Ready-to-Go, Flagship-caliber Engineering Accomplishments, precisely what Photosets represents !

-----


Update for 7 AM (California-time) Sunday, January 17th, 2020

FYI, we intend to submit Photosets v8.21 to Apple App Review later today.

It's another BIGGIE !

Please note that upon Release you will ONLY be able to get it via the iOS App Store here in the States.

Strictly a Business Decision, & strictly Our Call.

This "may" apply to ALL future updates as well.

We're Brewing Something BIG !

-----


Update for 7 PM (California-time) Saturday, January 16th, 2020

FYI, we've resolved the HEIC Photo Favorite Tagging issue !

We intend to submit Photosets v8.21, with the Fix, to Apple App Review by day's end tomorrow.

Scroll down for a Head's Up on what else is in the update.

-----


Update for 8 AM (California-time) Saturday, January 16th, 2020

FYI, our Top Priority today is resolving the HEIC Favorite Tagging problem that was discovered yesterday.

Custom code that used to work flawlessly is now crashing the app.

See yesterday's Breaking News below for additional information.

-----


"Our Pitch" (Brand New as of Thurs, Jan 14th, 2021):

(intended for anyone interested in Photosets, including Angel Investors & VCs)

Photosets is the ONLY Camera App on the planet whose captured Burst Photo Sets can be used to effectively make Burst Videos !

The app's High Cycle-to-Cycle Capture Timing Performance is the key !

And naturally we are referring to Capture Timing Performance at Full-Res 12 Mpx & 30 fps !

Made possible by the special way Photosets' Camera starts up !

OK, but Why is this Important ?

Because it means that everytime you use Photosets' Camera to capture Photos, you'll be able to ALSO use those Photos to make Unique & Innovative Short Form Videos !

v8.21, out soon, even takes it to another Higher Level !

You can think of Photosets as the planet's first-ever FULL-featured Burst Photo Camera.

Capture with the app's Camera, Favorite Tag with the app's Editor, Make Burst Videos with the app's 30-scene Video Maker !

The app's File Manager is key to making it ALL possible.

OK, but if it's so Great, why has Apple never recommended it ?

Apple does NOT recommend third-party Engineering Accomplishments !

In our case, we believe Apple does NOT want the General Public to know that a $2T USD market cap company has been OUT-Engineered by a small U.S.-based company !

When it comes to Camera Technology, Apple appears to be especially IN-secure.

OK, regardless, if it's so Great, why has it done so poorly in the iOS App Store ?

Most have ZERO experience with High-Performance NON-Game Apps !

Most have never had even ONE on ANY of the iPhones they've ever owned !

And just as important, most have NO idea that Photosets' Camera is a Significant Fine-Tuned Engineering Accomplishment !

We believe most simply compare how it operates to the vast majority of Single Shot Cameras, as well as ALL the other Low-Perf Burst Photo Cameras in the iOS App Store.

WE are convinced this ALSO applies to the iOS App Store "Editors" around the world.

These are the guys & girls at Apple who make the Recommendation Decisions.

If Tim Cook had an Engineering background, instead of a Manufacturing Operations background, you very-likely would have heard about Photosets many years ago !

We are 100% convinced of that !

The ONLY other possibility is Intentional Suppression of Third-Party App Innovation, for their own advantage.

Whether that advantage is to offer their own version of Photosets, OR (now) simply to try to hide the fact that their 1st-Gen 5G iPhones are NOT power efficient, still remains to be determined.

In the meantime, those with a "Pro" iPhone suffer, expecially those with a 12 Pro OR 12 Pro Max, as the extra 2 GB of DRAM in both makes it easier for Photosets to run at its Highest Possible Performance !

Better-than-GoPro Burst Photo Capture Performance !

That's what iPhone "Pro" owners are missing out on !

The ability to ALSO craft Short Form Burst Videos is just Icing on the Cake !

But that's ALSO what iPhone "Pro" owners are missing out on !

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 5 PM (California-time) Friday, January 15th, 2020

FYI, we may need to delay submitting Photosets v8.21 to Apple App Review past day's end.

We discovered a problem with the app's HEIC Favorite Tagging support in the Burst Photo Editor, which the new Burst Video Maker enhancement will leverage.

It appears to us that Apple changed the metadata format structure for HEIC photos.

We've pin-pointed precisely where the issue is, but we don't know why Apple changed the format's structure.

And as such, we may need time to think about how best to address it.

Photosets uses custom code for Reading, Modifying, & Writing the metadata of HEIC photos.

It was added-into the app first week of May last year, at which time it was Rock Solid !

We had NOT seen this problem until today.

-----


Update for 9:30 AM (California-time) Friday, January 15th, 2020

FYI, we intend to submit Photosets v8.21 to Apple App Review by day's end.

For the second day in a row, it simply wasn't ready by day's end yesterday.

We've been busy this week recruiting Female Fitness & Bikini Models here in California to help us with our Marketing efforts.

Time to make a BIG splash !

-----


Update for 12 Noon (California-time) Wednesday, January 13th, 2020

FYI, we're On Track to submit Photosets v8.21 to Apple App Review by day's end.

It adds support for optionally adding a SlideShow to the tail-end of a Burst Video crafted by the app's
30-scene Burst Video Maker !

It's a Brand New Concept, that we came up with ONLY yesterday.

From the BIG picture perspective, think of a multi-scene Short Form Video followed immediately by a multi-scene one-Photo-per-Scene SlideShow, & where there is a 1:1 correspondence between the Video Scenes & the Slideshow Scenes.

The End Result is a multi-scene Burst Video up-to ~2 minutes in Total Duration.

It offers a Different Way of Telling a Story.

Key to both making it happen & to making it special, it leverages the "Favorite Tagging" support in the app's Burst Photo Editor !

-----


Update for 9 AM (California-time) Tuesday, January 12th, 2020

FYI, we're On Track to Release our first-ever Application Note by day's end on Friday !

It's titled "How to Make a 30-scene 40-second Burst Video".

Please see the relevant Tech Spec Tables on our Photosets webpage for a Head's Up on what's possible.

-----


FYI, v8.22 is Photosets' 267th App Approval !

A Rare, True Flagship-caliber Burst Photo Camera App !

Photosets includes ALL the tools necessary to craft 30-scene 40-second Videos,
including with concurrently Captured Audio !

Additionally, if you're using Photosets on an iPhone OR iPad, & it's directly connected to an Apple Silicon Mac that is ALSO running Photosets, you'll soon have the option of storing your captured photosets ONLY on your Mac !

Could be a Game Changer !

News Updates

----------


Update for 9 AM (California-time) Tuesday, January 12th, 2020

FYI, we're On Track to Release our first-ever Application Note by day's end on Friday !

It's titled "How to Make a 30-scene 40-second Burst Video".

Please see the relevant Tech Specs Tables on our Photosets webpage for a Head's Up on what's possible.

-----


Update for 8 AM (California-time) Monday, January 11th, 2020

FYI, we're now working on a suite of Application Notes, intended to try to help those using Photosets get Up to Speed as Quick as Possible.

We intend to publish the first by week's end.

-----


Update for 10 AM (California-time) Friday, December 25th, 2020

FYI, quick update to yesterday's Breaking News.

Rocket is the official name of our (proposed) Cosmosent Labs, Inc.-branded smartphones.

And naturally, Rocket One™ will be the first !

-----


BREAKING NEWS: 1 PM (California-time) Thursday, December 24th, 2020

FYI, we've concluded the Time is Right to pursue a Partnership.

And we will do so shortly AFTER the Christmas Holiday.

Our intent is to develop, market, & sell, a 6.3" High-Perf Burst Photo-optimized smartphone for $649 USD.

And, very importantly, to release an updated version of it every year at the same price point.

And last but NOT least, they will be Cosmosent Labs, Inc.-branded smartphones.

-----


Update for 9 AM (California-time) Tuesday, December 22nd, 2020

Two things to announce:

1.) The Cat will soon be Out of the Bag !

Specifically, the Progressive Web App (PWA) version of Timmy v2.0 should become Available either just-before OR just-after Christmas !

2.) We've Kicked Off R&D work on adding Twitter client support into Photosets !

We've put the Controls in the app's Home View, where the File Manager is.

You can think of it as a Burst Photo-specific Twitter client.

We had, at one time, tried to accomplish generally the same thing via Messages, but could NOT get the Receiving part to work because of Apple restrictions.

We kept ALL the code in the app, & we are now simply updating it to support Twitter's API v2.

-----


Update for 1 PM (California-time) Monday, December 21st, 2020

Two things to announce:

1.) Photosets v8.16 has just been Approved by Apple App Review, & as such, should become Available for Download later today !

It's an Important Update & we encourage everyone to update to it ASAP.

2.) The Progressive Web App (PWA) version of Timmy v2.0 should become Available either just-before OR just-after Christmas !

We intend to offer it for FREE, & the ONLY ads you'll see in it, will be related to our other apps, most noteably Photosets & Photosets TV.

Timmy v2.0 Updates

----------


FYI, we intend to release a Progressive Web App (PWA) version of Timmy v2.0 by week's end !

It is derived from the native iOS version of Timmy v2.0 that we have working in our Lab, that we may OR may NOT submit to Apple App Review.


Here is a Head's Up on Timmy v2.0.

As a reminder, Timmy is the ONLY per-Qtr, per-Device iPhone Unit Sales Estimator App on the planet !

It uses two constraint-based math algorithms to figure-out its per-Qtr, per-Device estimates, one that covers Apple's CY2018, the last year Apple released iPhone Unit Sales numbers, & one that covers everything AFTER that.

Numbers in Blue in the Table are the app's High-Level per-Qtr Defaults.

They, along with other data, are used as inputs to the algorithms.

Note that the blue numbers in the table represent ONLY a 1st-order approximation.

Users are expected to craft their own Fine-Tuned Estimates, using the app's Defaults ONLY as an initial starting point.
