Sparrow, the email app for Mac and iPhone, has been acquired by Google. Their site notes this in an announcement. Dom Leca, Sparrow’s CEO, notes the following:
Now we’re joining the Gmail team to accomplish a bigger vision — one that we think we can better achieve with Google.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to all of our users who have supported us, advised us, given us priceless feedback and allowed us to build a better mail application. While we’ll be working on new things at Google, we will continue to make Sparrow available and provide support for our users.
We had an amazing ride and can’t thank you enough.
Looks like (the mobile version of) Gmail will be getting some more design attention soon with the addition of Sparrow’s crew to the Gmail developement department.
