In the News Okay, so this is entirely new to me. Sparrow is was an email client for Mac OS X and iOS (and Windows), which brought a decent Gmail experience to these platforms - as opposed to Apple's own not-so-good Gmail support and Google's Gmail iOS application which, well, is just a webpage. Google has now acquired Sparrow, and basically all hell has broken loose, to the point of Rian van der Merwe writing that 'we' lost "faith in a philosophy that we thought was a sustainable way to ensure a healthy future for independent software development, where most innovation happens".

What's wrong

What exactly is wrong with a (proper) mobile web page? I hate it when companies start developing apps for absolutely no good reason, other than just to have an app. HTML5 is cross-platform compatible and usually provides a consistent experience across various platforms.
