NewImageEarlier this year, popular OS X email client Sparrow arrived on the iPhone. It received much acclaim, but was criticized for lacking several seemingly critical email client features, including support for POP email accounts and push notifications.

Sparrow's developers have promised to add push notifications in a future update, but support for POP email accounts arrived in an update today, reports The Next Web.

The developers behind the popular Apple-focused email client Sparrow have today pushed a new update for its iPhone application, bringing its mobile client on par with the desktop version with the inclusion of full POP support.

What does this mean? Well, you will now be able to add Yahoo, Hotmail and any other private email accounts that you use on a daily basis, adding to the full Gmail and Google Apps support it already has.

Sparrow is available on the iPhone for $2.99 [Direct Link], with an iPad version coming soon.

I'd have this but I don't want two Mail apps on my phone, (or two very similar apps of any kind for that matter), unless I expressly needed them.

Why are updates to Sparrow adding POP a better question. When they add push notification that is news.
