Email client Sparrow Acquired by Google

Posted: 20 Jul 2012 09:37 AM PDT

The Sparrow team (developers of the fantastic 3rd party email client Sparrow and a favorite of mine) has just sent an email out to subscribers with news of being acquired by Google:

We’re excited to let you know that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!You can view our public announcement here, but I wanted to reach out directly to make sure you were aware of the news. 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.
It's been an honor and a pleasure to build products for all of our wonderful users who have supported us over the years. We can’t thank you enough.
We look forward to working on some new and exciting projects at Google!

It’s not known at this time if Sparrow will still be releasing the planned iPad version of the iOS app, though at the very least, it appears they’ll still be providing support and (critical) updates for the Mac, and iPhone versions. So does that mean we can forget about push notifications via yearly subscriptions on the iPhone?
