Today on http://sprw.me/
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!
Dom Leca CEO Sparrow
So my preferred mail client on OSX and iOS got aquired by Google which is ok-ish … were it not that they’ll completely stop development and start working on Google products. That just fucked up my day … I’ll have to see where this goes, maybe Google will launch a native mail client soon or improve their iOS Gmail App with the help of the Sparrow devs. I don’t know, but for the moment being I feel fucked. Simple as that.
PS: had to get that off my chest really :)
