Now you can prototype in Sketch with this new plugin

Collaboration platform InVision (opens in new tab) has acquired (opens in new tab) highly anticipated prototyping tool Silver Flows to bring live prototyping into Sketch (opens in new tab). Silver Flows helps designers define all the logic and transitions required to create prototypes directly within Sketch.

Experiences can also be mirrored on phones and tablets for real-world testing, and any changes made in Sketch will show on your device in real time.

"By enabling UX designers to design and build prototypes in the same space, they can more quickly test and validate the broader user experience their apps provide," explain the InVision team.

The announcement comes as Adobe launches a preview (opens in new tab) of its own dedicated UX prototyping tool, Adobe XD (opens in new tab). For designers and developers who prefer Sketch, it's an exciting time.

Silver Flows is currently in private beta but will be incorporated into Craft soon. Anyone interested can sign up for access at Silverflows.com (opens in new tab) or install Craft (opens in new tab).
