Google a achizitionat cel mai popular client de e-mail pentru iOS si Mac care oferea integrare Gmail cu o gramada de conturi, Priority Inbox si Unified Inbox, optiuni ce le gasim implementate in Gmail.
CEO-ul Sparrow, Dom Leca, scrie pe blogul lui:
We’re excited to announce that Sparrow has been acquired by Google!
We care a lot about how people communicate, and we did our best to provide you with the most intuitive and pleasurable mailing experience.
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.
Full speed ahead!
La numai cateva ore de la postarea lui Dom Leca, Google a facut o declaratie privind viitorul aplicatiei:
The Sparrow team has always put their users first by focusing on building a seamlessly simple and intuitive interface for their email client. We look forward to bringing them aboard the Gmail team, where they’ll be working on new projects.
De la aceasta achizitie ma astept la suport pentru notificari push si de ce nu, rebrenduirea din Sparrow in Gmail.
