Sparrow for iPhone On Sale!
, the popular iOS e-mail client alternative to Apple’s stock Mail application, is currently on sale in the App Store. For Tuesday and Wednesday, the $2.99 e-mail client can be bought for only 99˘. On Thursday, Sparrow can be purchased for an increased $1.99. By Friday, the application will be jacked back up to its original $2.99 price tag.
Just yesterday, the Sparrow team announced POP support for Sparrow for iOS
, allowing Hotmail and other popular POP e-mail services to finally join in on the previously IMAP-only fun. Unfortunately, push notifications were still not a part of the announcement due to complications between Sparrow and Apple in trying to implement them. According to the Sparrow team, they will probably be added as a paid subscription service in the future.
Even without push notifications, 99˘ for the e-mail client is a good price. The interface is great looking and zippy. Additionally, you are buying a product with a ton of support by the developers and a lot of future updates on the way. It would be a good idea to lock in your copy for just 99˘ if you have ever wanted to give it a try to see what all the buzz is about, or so that you will at least have it in your application arsenal when Sparrow releases a feature that you might like.
Unfortunately, even though the price has been reduced, if you paid $2.99 for the e-mail client in the past, there is no way to get your extra two dollars back. Let us know if you will be taking advantage of this deal today.
