Sparrow, the iOS and Mac Email client has just now announced that they have been acquired by Google and will be integrated within the Google GMail Team.
We’re excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!
We care a lot about how people communicate, and we did our best to provide you with the most intuitive and pleasurable mailing experience.
Now we’re joining the Gmail team to accomplish a bigger vision — one that we think we can better achieve with Google.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to all of our users who have supported us, advised us, given us priceless feedback and allowed us to build a better mail application. While we’ll be working on new things at Google, we will continue to make Sparrow available and provide support for our users.
We had an amazing ride and can’t thank you enough.
Full speed ahead!
Sparrow is a great third-party email app for both the Mac and iOS, specifically on the iPhone. The application has a unique user interface that is intuitive, a very minimal design and very well integrated into social networks.
Sparrow was in works to get the iPad version of it’s popular app out.
This is a great move by Google. They will undoubtedly mix together the style of Sparrow into Gmail and most probably make them into one product. We may also see an Android App in the near future.
