NewImageWhen Sparrow was acquired by Google, its developers said that development for the alternative email app had ceased with the exception of "support and critical updates."

It appears that support for the iPhone 5's larger screen is considered a critical update, and Sparrow CEO Dom Leca has promised an update "soon", saying so in a tweet noticed by The Next Web.

Why is this the only app that gets all these minor updates reported?

Jordan seems to be the only one who reports on it. Might be about time he stopped cause its just plain idiotic that this one app (that hasnt exactly got a huge user base) gets minor update reports when other apps dont. He still seems to treat macrumors as his own personal blog.

Haha, I personally don't like it, but I just don't really understand what the love affair is between MacRumors & Sparrow :p
