Sparrow for iOS updates to 1.1; push email coming

updated 02:30 pm EDT, Wed April 4, 2012

Promises long-awaited feature

Sparrow has released an update to the iOS version of its self-titled mail client. The v1.1 upgrade implements a number of small but significant features, such as a built-in web browser, and a "send and archive" command. Separate commands have also been added for emptying trash and spam, and to show or hide labels and folders.

Dock badge preferences can now be configured by account, and attachments can be made when forwarding messages. A collection of bugfixes deal with problems like mail server compatibility, SMTP access, and pull-to-refresh. The app costs $3 and requires iOS 5 or later.

Sparrow is promising that push email support will come in a future update, possibly as soon as v1.2. "Thanks to your amazing support, we feel confident that Apple might revise its position on the Push API," a company blog post reads. "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. If Apple can't help us yet, we have other ideas," the post finishes.
