Sparrow for iOS receives a major update in the App Store – Download Now!

Sparrow mail client for iOS has received it’s first update in the App Store, that brings many new features and improvements to the app. Version 1.1 of Sparrow brings much needed features such as built-in web browser, send & archive, empty trash, empty spam, dock badge, show/hide labels and folders, it also adds ability for users to add attachements when forwarding email messages. Many bugs have also been fixed in this update to make the app even more stable. 

So has this update added Push notification feature to the app or not? Well, the answer is No. But don’t worry as Team Sparrow is already working on the solution. As they have mentioned on their official blog

Thanks to your amazing support, we feel confident that Apple might revise its position on the Push API. We’ll submit a first version of Sparrow 1.2 including it. This might delay Sparrow 1.2 validation but we’re already working with some partners to include Push in future versions of Sparrow without needing Apple clearance.

Push is coming. With or without Apple.
