Why I Love Sparrow on iOS and Why I Don’t Want Push Emails

Posted by Carter Bailey

The Sparrow icon on iOS

Dear Sparrow,

I know you were recently acquired by Google, so maybe I should be addressing Google, but it is your icon I see in on my Launchpad bar. I know  getting certain emails can be important or, at least, people think it is important. Push Notifications for email in your iOS app would be widely appreciated. Personally, this would be an unwelcome feature for me, and I would like to share the "why" with you.
