Research in Motion Acquires App Tool Developer tinyHippos [uk.reuters.com]
BlackBerry maker Research In Motion says it has bought Ontario-based startup tinyHippos Inc, creator of Ripple, a cross-platform mobile application development and testing tool.

The company was acquired for its "extensive experience in web and mobile widget/web development," Tyler Lessard, RIM's vice president of global alliances and developer relations, said on the developer's blog on Friday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
