    Was just wondering if which are the majority of the users currently using? I know Sparrow does not have native push notification, so that might be a relatively huge setback for most users. Other than that, it's one of the best mail alternative app out there. Anyone on iOS 6 prefers Sparrow instead of the mail app? (App has not been updated to support iOS 6 & iPhone 5 though)

    Sparrow is a nice mail app. When I was jailbroken I had it set to be the default mail app and had push notifications working. I have to admit I liked it very much. Only drawback was the drain on battery due to how notifications were handled.

    I wouldn't hold your breath for an ios6 update. Since Sparrow has been bought by Google the word is they will not be updating their app any longer.

    default. don't feel like paying $2.99 for something that is usable already.
