RIM has just posted up that tinyHippos will be joining the RIM family. No these aren’t real hippos, its actually a company that focuses on mobile widgets and web developments. I’m not at all familar with the company, but apparently they have a mobile environment emulator called Ripple, which is a multi-platform mobile environment emulator that runs in your web browser. You can read up all the details on Ripple on tinyHippos website. Below is a quote from the BlackBerry DevBlog:
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.
