Right when the beta for Adobe's Comet (Experience Design CC) was released.
InVision investing quite heavily in sketch. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to buy it, though not sure if Sketch would sell. But interesting to watch this play out.
I'd rather not pay a monthly fee for Sketch.
InVision would be incentivized to make Sketch free, thereby widening its adoption which therefore widens the top of InVisions funnel for paid customers seeking the more advanced functionality.
Plenty of people would be happy with Sketch + InVision free plan, but when it came time to unlock Prototyping/Interaction designs, I suspect many people would be happy to pay.
invision acquires them all.
That's right, a few moths ago Macaw and now Silver Flows, what's next?
Not only Macaw but also Napkin and Waybury (Relay, Iconic). And it's only this year ;) They have a shitload of investors money to buy 'em all.
Really hoping Silver Flows doesn't rely on InVisions cloud. The fact that Silver Flows was integrated directly into Sketch and didn't rely on the cloud was the most exciting part for me.
I've been waiting to try out Silver Flows for quite some time: looks like I'll have to wait a little bit longer. I've been loving what inVision has been putting out lately, so I'm sure it'll be worth the wait :)
Wow, nice move InVision!
Keep it up, proud of you
About time I'd say! Really going heavy on Craft. Let's hope it performs.
They are becoming Adobe, and Adobe sucks.
Not sure that I understand your sentiment here.
If you mean that they are becoming the original Adobe of the 1990s making products for designers and creatives all under one roof, then I would agree. But, very few people thought that Adobe sucked back then.
If you mean that they are becoming the modern-day Adobe with overpriced products, feature bloat, and a misunderstanding of what contemporary digital designers need, then I have to disagree. Invision continues to make my job and my designers' jobs easier every time that they release something new.
Craft is absolutely amazing. Motion looks incredible. And they're releasing these features into the wild for free right now.
At the end of the video announcement, they say "Invision, Craft, and Sketch... the product design platform of the future is already here".
That's a bit cheeky though, given that Motion was announced 6 months ago as "Coming Soon", and Inspect was announced 7 months ago, and has just entered into private beta.
Is anyone concerned about this, or does InVision's track record for shipping ease your mind?
In general I agree with your concern, but I also see some recent signs that they understand this concern and are working to improve their track record of delivery. The recent iOS app and frequent Craft 1.0 updates give me some more hope. But we will have to wait and see.
I think you are very confused.
Well, please explain how you see InVision is becoming Adobe then.
I predicted that! https://twitter.com/maexco/status/706759638432260096
I like your Twitter page – just thought I'd let you know. I'm digging the yellow scheme.
Wow, thanks Manny :)
Nostradamus, is that you?
What is the software used for the "motion design" part of the video?
I really really hope they are going to support Android devices!!
I like where this is going.
Great news. My biggest question is - when will we have access to it?
Motion was announced last September, still nothing.
In the meantime, I've taken up Principle for interactive prototyping.
I'm quite keen to have everything in one environment as SilverFlows promises, but the clock is ticking here.
Finally, I would happily pay for a Sketch monthly subscription. It's a shame that the team that is at the central focus of the ecosystem to unseat Adobe (in prototyping) - is not sharing as heavily in the upside. Plus, it's money that could go into running a more mature software company.
Money is not the only issue in scaling a software company. Adobe has a bucketload of cash and yet they cannot seem to produce anything modern, worthy of release. I like Bohemian Coding just the way they are right now :-)
