Google has just bought RelativeWave, an American start-up publishing a tool for editing and testing prototypes of mobile applications. The transaction amount was not sent.

formSpecifically, the company publishes Form, a platform from which developers can view and edit prototypes of mobile apps for iOS without having to write lines of code. It is therefore not an application design tool as such. The solution is available directly from the Apple App Store, in mobile and desktop versions.

Initially, the product was marketed for just under $ 80. But, “Today, with the help of Google, we are making Form available for free on the Mac App Store. We want Form to be in the hands of as many people as possible, and this is our first step in achieving that goal, ”the company explains on its website.

The RelativeWave teams should join those of the Mountain View firm in order to continue the development of Form. “With the help of Google, we will be focused on improving the design and development tools,” explains the founders.
