Sparrow Acquired by Google

I got an email this morning from Sparrow, which is a fantastic email app that I use on my Macs, and my iPhone.

We will continue to make available our existing products, and we will provide support and critical updates to our users. However, as we’ll be busy with new projects at Google, we do not plan to release new features for the Sparrow apps.

Ever since Sparrow came out, I haven't really used the gmail web interface when I'm at home on my MacBook. I've also been seriously considering setting up Boxcar on my iPhone to go Sparrow only. Truthfully I was just hoping they would offer Push sometime soon.

Not anymore. This is awesome news for Dom, the founder of Sparrow, but I'll take a wait-and-see approach on whether it is good for users.
