Prototyping suite InVision just announced they are getting Silver Flows, a resource that lets developers prototype right within Sketch. The acquisition arrives just a couple months after InVision obtained the code-based style resource Macaw, and is the company’s fourth acquisition to day.
Silver Flows, which is currently in non-public beta, eliminates the stress of building in Sketch then prototyping within a separate resource. Ahead of Silver Flows designers would have to to make graphics in Sketch then manually move them into a diverse prototyping app.
As a result of the acquisition, the tool will soon be integrated into Craft, which is InVision’s suite of style plugins.
After integrated into Craft, designers will be capable to leverage InVision’s cloud based feedback instruments though doing the job within Sketch. In other words and phrases, all prototypes and style variations will mechanically sync with shareable InVision files, and vice versa (all variations in InVision will sync to Sketch files).
By expanding their brand into Sketch and getting yet another well-known style resource, InVision is making it very clear that they hope to eventually own the whole style and prototyping workflow, essentially becoming a one particular cease shop for world wide web and app designers.
