RIM Welcomes tinyHippos!



Today we are pleased to announce that tinyHippos has joined Research In Motion (RIM). We’re excited that the tinyHippos team is joining the BlackBerry Developer team and bringing their expertise in cross-platform emulation environments to the BlackBerry platform.

tinyHippos are the makers of a mobile environment emulator called Ripple and have extensive experience in web and mobile widget/web development. If you are not already familiar with them you can find out more about tinyHippos at http://tinyhippos.com/.

We have been integrating support for web technologies like HTML5 and BlackBerry WebWorks into our developer platform, and working to continually deliver enhanced tools and frameworks to our developer community. We look forward to working with the team at tinyHippos to further provide a simplified and streamlined experience to our developers.

– Tyler Lessard, VP Global Alliances & Developer Relation at RIM

Tags: blackberry webworks, html5, tinyHippos.Comments: View Comments tweetmeme_style='compact'; View Comments In this tutorial, the PhoneGap GeoLocation demo application will be run inside the tinyHippos Ripple Mobile Environment Emulator.RIM has announced the acquisition of tinyHippos, a company whose product Ripple, allows developers to test and debug their HTML5 apps for multiple platforms from within the browser. tinyHippos seems like a cool acquisition because RIM is in desperate need of some cool new developer tools to accompany the QNX-powered platform we’re about to start seeing on tablets and smartphones. Not only that, but RIM is increasingly trying to court web developers to bring HTML5 apps to the BlackBerry platform via WebWorks and this acquisition should help with that endeavor.Read the official announcement over at the Dev Blog.google_ad_client="pub-7131708721983712";google_ad_slot="2579457768";google_ad_width=300;google_ad_height=250; Related Posts:Save the Date: BlackBerry WebWorks for Tablet OS WebcastsCTIA 2010: AppMobi Announces Cross Platform Developer Kit for Web DevelopersRIM Introduces Cell Tower Geolocation Feature for BlackBerry DevelopersPreloaded App World Tutorial Will Help Developers Sell More AppsRIM releases new tools for developers creating web appsPermalinkPost Comment« Will the PlayBook Generate Lines Like the iPad 2?Cool Upcoming Game for the PlayBook: The Core »blog comments powered by Disqus /**/ var DsqLocal={'trackbacks':[],'trackback_url':"http://www.blackberrycool.com/2011/03/27/rim-acquires-ripple-product-developers-tinyhippos/trackback/"}; /**/ /**/ Quick LinksReviewsEditorialsHelpPodcastsVideosSubscribeRSSPodcastEmailTwitterBBCool MobileStaff PicksThe Best Free Apps For BlackBerry foursquare FREE Google Maps FREE SmrtGuard-Free FREE THK Live FREE Poynt FREE /**/ FB.init("d404c94e6e9520664fd0095b4ee726d7");BlackBerry Cool on FacebookSpotlightsThe Story of Possibly the First Branded BlackBerry Game View CommentsHow the iPod Tax Affects the Cost of Your Smartphone in Canada View Comments5 Tips for Success When Selling Your App in BlackBerry App World View CommentsBlackBerry Style 9670 Review: The First Clamshell, Full QWERTY BlackBerry View CommentsComparing Mobihand and App World Vendor Portals: What’s Best for the Developer?
