Google has acquired RelativeWave, makers of Form, a mobile app protyping application for Mac. RelativeWave announced the news on its website with the following message:

I'm very excited to announce that the RelativeWave team is joining Google to continue the development of Form!

I speak for the team when I say that we're incredibly humbled by what the community has created with Form. We've seen people create designs that we could have never imagined. It's one of the best feelings in the world to see people using your work.

Today, with the help of Google, we're making Form free on the Mac App Store. We want to get Form in the hands of as many people as possible, and this is our first step in accomplishing that goal.

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.

RelativeWave will refund money to people who have already paid for Form. It did cost $79.

Here's a look at how Form works:
