Sparrow, the popular alternative email client, is coming to the iPad. The company has posted a teaser page where interested users can sign up to be notified when the client is closer to public release, as noted by The Next Web.
The iPhone version of Sparrow was missing a huge feature -- push notifications -- some would think necessary to an email program. The developers behind Sparrow have announced that they're working on an alternative method to enable push because Apple has refused to allow Sparrow to use the APIs necessary to make push work natively.
The Next Web thinks Sparrow's push notification service might be announced at the same time as the iPad app, speculating that next week's WWDC conference would be an excellent time for both announcements.
