Push Email Coming to Sparrow for iPhone ‘With or Without Apple’

Posted on April 4, 2012 by

Sparrow for iPhone launched last month and received some great reviews, but one essential feature is still missing, push email. The reason push isn’t available yet is related to Apple’s rules on the Push API. But the developer promised in a blog post today that push  is coming, “with or without Apple.”

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.

Sparrow is available in the App Store for $2.99.
