@Postbox: The Sparrow Team is moving to Google and they will no longer be developing the Sparrow email client - http://t.co/VPSWp0Qc

Who can blame Postbox from trying to pick up former Sparrow customers now that Sparrow’s team have been hired to improve Gmail?
Personally, I tried Sparrow for several weeks (I was suckered by their claim to be ‘social email’), and the moderate benefits arising from slick design were countered by the lack of integration with other Gmail-smart services, like Rapportive and Todoist, that I really can’t live without. Maybe, downstream, the UX thinking behind Sparrow will find its way into a future generation of Gmail.
