Sparrow founder, Dom Leca, took to Twitter to tell the Sparrow-using masses that the application will get an update for iPhone 5 users.

The move has surprised many, considering Sparrow was recently acquired by Google. We assume that at some point the app will be killed off and replace Google’s own Gmail application, but until that happens, iPhone 5 users will be able to get their hands on the fullscreen application in the near future.
