Sparrow Alternative Email Client Coming To iPad
Last month, Sparrow was in news when it added some new features to its iPhone version. Now the popular alternative email client, is coming to the iPad.
The Next Web has noted that Sparrow has posted a teaser page on its official website where interested users can sign up to be notified when the client is closer to public release.
The iPhone version of Sparrow was missing a huge feature called push notifications. Some people would think necessary to an email program. The developers behind Sparrow have announced that they are working on an alternative method to enable push because Apple has refused to allow Sparrow to use the Application Programming Interface (APIs) necessary to make push work natively.
If you cannot wait till then, there is a jailbreak tweak in Cydia that enable to push notifications in Sparrow.
The Next Web thinks Sparrow’s push notification service might be announced at the same time as the iPad app, speculating that next week’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) conference would be an excellent time for both announcements.
