Sparrow 1.2 adds landscape mode, label/folder management

updated 01:06 pm EDT, Mon May 14, 2012

Promised push notifaction to require annual subscription

Sparrow has released a new version of its iPhone email client, bringing it up to 1.2. The release makes several important changes, for instance allowing landscape composition for the first time, and navigating between messages by swiping up or down. Users can now edit or create labels and folders, and the app has been localized for nine languages in total: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Russian, and Chinese.

The developer says, though, that Apple has told it a promised push notification feature can't be implemented through a VoIP framework, as done in early betas. This means that push notifications will require server-side support, and hence a paid annual subscription for people wanting the feature.

The core Sparrow app costs $3, and requires iOS 5 or later.
