Sparrow was an email client for OS X and iOS. After a 4-month beta period, Sparrow went on sale in the Mac App Store on February 9, 2011 and became the top paid and top grossing app in less than one day. On July 20, 2012, the company announced that it had been acquired by Google and was ceasing continued development of the application save critical bug fixes. Sparrow uses a simplified user interface as opposed to a more traditional email style such as Apple's Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird.
