Sparrow, the insanely popular and better iOS email client was recently purchased by Google and hasn’t seen any updates until now. Firemint has also pushed out a new update for popular racing game Real Racing 2.
At first Apple rejected the new update for Sparrow, but it seems like they’ve now let the iOS app be updated. It’s not a great big update, but it does bring the much needed iPhone 5 support. The latest version of Sparrow now also features Passbook support. This means that you can easily send .pkpass files directly to the new Passbook app in iOS 6.
Google, after it took all of Sparrow’s coders under its Gmail wing, mentioned that no new features would be released for the Sparrow app on Mac and iOS. However, the team would continue to provide support and bug fixes for the app.
Real Racing 2, the popular racing game for iOS, has been finally updated with support for the widescreen display on the iPhone 5.
