Dom Leca, CEO of Sparrow, has indicated that there are currently no plans to update the current apps. The total acquisition is reportedly costs under $25 million reported The Verge.

The previously-promised iPhone app version of the Sparrow is therefore in jeopardy. Sparrow got a loyal following, due to the intuitive design of the apps. In terms of functionality, it could still be improved. When Sparrow appeared in the App Store to support only Gmail and IMAP accounts. Later it was also support the POP accounts added and the possibility of push notifications was work in progress. Sparrow would therefore use a different method than Apple's standard app was offering, but did not release it. Until, later on, the team would anyway integrate the push notifications, whether Apple would participate or not.

Sparrow also announced that its existing e-mail clients, which are suitable for Mac and iPhone to stillbe available for users. Sparrow-apps have already found support for Google's Gmail service. Last month, Google acquired Quickoffice, the branch office software to strengthen them. With Quickoffice, the Internet giant wants support for its own apps offerings expand.

Dom Leca says about support for existing users:

While we are busy with new things at Google, we continue to make Sparrow available and provide support to our users.

But while it is clear that the five-member team will be fully integrated into the Gmail team is working on new projects for Google. In a statement to news media reports Google:

“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.”
