Sparrow has just updated the iOS version of their popular email client, bringing several new features, including custom icon badges, improved archiving, and a built-in web browser. About the only thing it’s missing now is push support, which Sparrow promises will come soon with or without Apple’s help.
What’s New in Version 1.1
- Send & Archive.
- Show/hide dock badge per account: Customize your icon badges to show unread emails only from certain accounts, as opposed to all of them.
- Only show specific labels and folders: It’s simple; hide the labels you don’t need.
- Built-in web browser: Forget switching between Sparrow and Safari to open links; you can now browse the web right within Sparrow.
- Empty trash and empty spam: Delete unwanted emails in bulk.
- Option to include attachments: You’ll now be able to choose whether or not you’d like to include any attachments when forwarding an email.
Besides the new features, the update includes a variety of bugfixes. Sparrow is also already hard at work on their next update, which will bring landscape mode for writing emails, and improved swipe gestures for managing messages.
Sparrow for iPhone is available now for $2.99 (App Store link).
