Google Snatches Up Sparrow Team to Work on Gmail
Google has acquired e-mail software startup Sparrow in a move that brings its team to work on Google’s Gmail product.
Sparrow’s chief executive Dom Leca announced the news on the company’s site and Twitter account this morning, as well as in an e-mail to existing Sparrow users.
Leca says that the company will continue to make Sparrow available, and keep it up and running with support, though he did not offer any details about the addition of any new features in the months ahead.
Sorry to see this happening. Sparrow is a very nice email client for OS X and iOS. If you are a Gmail user, this is good news, because it should drastically improve the UE for Gmail. Not such good news for Sparrow users that do not have Gmail accounts.
