    Love the UI, but the lack of push notifications (I know the story behind that) and Exchange support, means its kind of a bust for me.

    Yes, but push notifications will follow. Still glad to have it now with notifications later, rather than waiting for the final implementation.

    That is assuming that they can find an implementation that Apple will allow.

    No exchange support is a bust for me. Almost all of the emails I send and receive on my iPhone are via an exchange account.

    If those exchange servers support IMAP, then you can use IMAP, though the desktop client doesn't officially support Exchange via ActiveSync or the other protocols, Exchange and Sparrow Mail (Mac) support IMAP IDLE, which is pretty much like PUSH, or gives such capabilities.

    No notifications whatsoever, I am under the impression and from this day's use.

    Been using Sparrow for Mac and I love it.

    As for the iPhone app the lack of push is disappointing but I am still using this program.

    Once you flip back and forth from folder to folder, all effortlessly, you wont wanna use the regular iOS mail app.

    This program allows me to be MUCH more productive with my email. After using it going back to the regular iOS mail app feels VERY limiting and constricting. I feel boxed up!

    How does privacy work for this 3rd party mail app? Do all our mail go thru their servers?

    I just use it for my Gmail account. iCloud email is better handled by Apple Mail.

    How is Sparrow? Is it worth it? I don't have it on my Mac but I'm considering getting it for my 4S and Mac or just my 4S. I have a gmail and exchange email.
