The Sparrow developers warn that POP accounts are not supported yet, but expect the addition in a future update. Potential buyers should also consider that Sparrow for iPhone does not integrate with iCloud. It also doesn’t support push notifications in its current state. Notifications will be added in an upcoming update along with localization, landscape mode, a built-in browser, send and archive enhancements, and the option to only show a specific label or folder in your inbox.
