A wonderfully exhaustive review of the just-released Sparrow for iPhone by Federico Viticci. 

I’ve been testing out the app for a while now, and it’s pure gold. As you’re all well aware, I despise email, but Sparrow at least makes it look good and behave well. If you want a good laugh, look at Sparrow side-by-side with Google’s native Gmail app.

The only real downside of the app is the lack of Push Notifications. But they’re honest about why: it’s hard to do it in a secure way. Really hard. Meanwhile, Apple hasn’t yet dished out APIs for the type of background sniffing that would be needed to get this to work without routing every email through Sparrow’s own servers. 

But the team is hopeful that this will change eventually. For now, you’ll just have to settle for a great-looking email app.
