Google acquires Mac app-maker RelativeWave, gives away $80 Form app for free

RelativeWave, the team behind the Mac app Form, has announced that it is now part of Google. As part of the acquisition, Google has made the $80 prototyping and design app available as a free download on the Mac App Store. The RelativeWave team will continue development of the app under Google.

We've just scratched the surface with prototyping. With the help of Google, we'll be focused on improving the state of design and development tools.

With Form, developers can see what their iOS app will look like as they work on the design.

The good news is that Google's generosity doesn't stop there. If you've previously plucked down $80 for the Form app, you can get a refund.

  • Q. I previously purchased Form, will I be able to get a refund?
  • A. Yes, please email

And according to the announcement page on the company's website, it is hinted that Form may be available as a prototyping tool for other platforms outside of iOS in the future, with the team saying "stay tuned" when asked.
