Sparrow 1.1 Released – Push Notifications "Coming Soon"
Sparrow is a popular iOS e-mail client because of its looks, interaction abilities, and ease of use. It works with all IMAP e-mail accounts such as Gmail, Yahoo, and more. Many like it more than Apple’s stock Mail application. One major downside with it has to do with the fact that Apple wouldn’t allow Sparrow to include push notifications with the application.
Today, Sparrow gets updated to version 1.1 with a couple of useful new features. The major one being that Sparrow now has its own built-in Web browser for users to view Web content directly in the e-mail client instead of having to open links into Safari and then use the multitasking App Switcher or another method to get back to the Sparrow application. The other update being the ability to archive messages.

The version 1.1 update is free for all current Sparrow users and new users can buy Sparrow for the price of $2.99 from this link.

I don't understand. A lot of other apps have push notifications (if im not confused), why is this app specifically denied by apple?

I guess I'm completely missing the boat on this app... I really don't get it as to why this is any better than the native mail app.
I bought it, and set up my 5 email accounts, and played with it for a week or so, and ended up deleting it. To me, it just seemed akward to work with, and not very intuitive. (I prefer to not use the "common" inbox, so I can keep my various accounts separate, so the having to swipe from account to account seemed no better then the approach taken by the native client).
What am I missing ? Is it just more visually appealing ?

not so interesting as it`s a bit slow on iphone 4....... I think it`s not worth the price...... m gonna keep using the default iOS mail app....mutch more optimized and mutch more better and fast..... people r making noise for something worthless....hahaha anyway thx for sharing ..............that was my personal opinion............
