Google Acquires Sparrow

“While we’ll be working on new things at Google, we will continue to make Sparrow available and provide support for our users.” – Sparrow

It sounds like Google bought a development team. Hopefully this leads to great new iOS and Android GMail clients.

Here’s hoping.

UPDATE: Oh, wow. From the Sparrow App Store page.

“As the team works on new projects, there will be no new features released for the Sparrow apps, other than minor maintenance and bug fixes.”

Do you think that will kill sales?

UPDATE 2: Matthew Panzarino, of The Next Web, has the best coverage. It includes a statement from Google that pretty much says they bought a development team to work on GMail.
