Sparrow 1.2 for iPhone is here and comes with 4 new features:
You can now navigate all your mailbox messages simply by swiping up and down. When switching from a conversation to another, you’ll see a special separator clearly showing you’re swiping to a new conversation.
Edit and create folder/labels
You can now rename, create, delete all your labels and folders straight from within the app.
You can now compose messages in landscape mode.
Fluent in 9 languages
Sparrow now speaks English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Russian, and Chinese.
You were more than 16 000 helping us on our Apple quest to get the VoIP privilege. We can’t thank you enough for your support. Unfortunately, Apple has confirmed that they are not willing to do any exception to the rule and that Sparrow will NOT be granted with the privilege.
This means we’ll have to do Push on our side and that it will be integrated as a yearly subscription into Sparrow’s future update.
You can grab Sparrow iPhone 1.2 here. Sparrow 1.6 for Mac is coming soon. Stay tuned.
One step at the time
Like on the Mac, Sparrow for iPhone will evolve fast and integrate feature requests and bug fixes.
Sparrow 1.1 is the first step and here is what’s new:
We’re already working on Sparrow 1.2.
The next update will include localization in 9 languages, landscape mode when composing and will allow you to swipe up and down between messages.
What’s up on Push?
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. If Apple can’t help us yet, we have other ideas.
What about the Mac?
We’ve been busy on the iPhone for quite some time but we’re back on the Mac. We’re currently working on Sparrow 1.6 for Mac. This next release will include a lot of bug fixes and improvements. The main new feature will be POP support.
Finally, you’ll be able to plug your old Hotmail or Live account in Sparrow.
As always, we’ll keep you posted on our progress here.
