This is monumental. A third-party app for email, Sparrow for iOS redefined what an email user interface should be like, and Google has just gone and bought it, according to the company on its blog and Twitter account. This either meaning that Google will purchase the company to leave it to stagnant or improve it further, even by integrating Sparrow with push notifications (currently reports are going with the leaving the app alone scenario). It’s all just a wait and see game, unless otherwise notified by Google.
