The popular email client Sparrow for Mac and iOS has now been acquired by Google. It is not clear on what they will do except that they will work on the Gmail team. One thing is certain there is a lot of options that we can see ahead of us when we look at at what they are going to do.
The statement from Sparrow
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!
