Customer Reviews

Before You Post a Negative Review, Read the App's Description (5 stars)
I use the desktop version of this app on my Mac in place of the native mail app and the mobile version doesn't disappoint. This is how the iOS mail app SHOULD be. Worth the $3! It doesn't have PUSH NOTIFICATION because of APPLE'S policies, not the folks from SPARROW. You want push? Push back on Apple to make it happen. This is the best mail app for iOS.

Beautiful UI. (4 stars)
Simple and efficient UI. Once there is full push support this app will get five stars, no question. Love the attachment feature. Also it would be great if you guys included support for tracking numbers for packages.

Great app (5 stars)
Live it.
