Sparrow Acquired By Google

20 July 2012

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.

Both Facebook and Google are acquiring top iOS talent seemingly every week. Personally, I hope the Sparrow team create incredible native clients for GMail1, but who knows what Google bought them for.

1 The GMail app for iOS is awful.
