RelativeWave’s $80 Mac App ‘Form’ Goes Free After Being Acquired by Google
If you’re a developer, you might be interested in the following Mac app, now free. RelativeWave has announced Google has acquired the company, and therefore their $80 Mac app is now available free of charge in the Mac App Store (they dropped the price to $79 in September).
Form allows developers to build custom prototypes right on their device for creating apps. There’s also a free Form Viewer companion iOS app available as well.
Form is a new approach to interaction design and prototyping.
Form lets you build custom prototypes directly on the device. Form prototypes are native and they have access to the device’s camera and other sensors. Prototypes built with Form are as powerful as their coded counterparts.
1. Live updates – Your document updates on the device as you work, without resetting the composition.
2. Native prototypes – Use device sensors such as the camera, accelerometer and gyroscope.
3. 3D – Views support 3D content and perspective.
The RelativeWave team says the move to make Form free is “to get Form in the hands of as many people as possible, and this is our first step in accomplishing that goal.” If you’ve been considering purchasing this app, now is the time to get it. If you’ve purchased it previously, you will be able to get a refund as well by emailing email@example.com.
