Kim’s motivation for making Sparrow Push cydia tweak:
My motivation was that I really, really loved Sparrow and I was just wishing Apple would not cripple it. I am frustrated at how they are preventing innovation. So I decided to fix it. I wanted to use Sparrow the way it was meant to be used by the developers; it had push in the beta version.
