Poll: Sparrow users, are you sticking with Sparrow for iPhone or switching to one of these alternatives?

Sparrow users, what will you do for Gmail on iPhone now?

Google has bought Mac and iPhone Gmail app, Sparrow, and while it will still be maintained, it will no longer be kept in active development. What that effectively means is, no more Sparrow for iPhone, at least not in the way that matters.

So, if you're a Sparrow user, what do you plan on doing?

You can certainly keep using the Sparrow app we have today until, at some point in the future it stops working. You won't get that push update you've been waiting for -- you won't get any new updates, but you'll keep what you have. For a while, at least. But you also have some other options...

Poll: Which next-gen iOS device do you want the most?

Which next-gen iOS device do you want the most?

There will almost certainly be an iPhone 5 this fall, likely October, and it may well come with a 4-inch, 16:9 screen and an LTE radio for super-fast networking. But is that the next-generation iOS device you want most?

Rumors are also running hot and heavy about a new addition to the iOS family, the first new addition since 2010 -- a 7.85-inch iPad mini. With the same powerful specs as the iPad 2, but in a much smaller package, it could be easier to carry, cheaper to buy, and much more attractive for education and mobile business. Is that the iOS device you've been lusting over?

The iPod touch hasn't been updated since the fall of 2010, so if Apple gives their gaming handheld the same kind of 4-inch, 16:9 inch screen, and maybe a redesign, would that be your dream iOS device?

Some kind of Apple TV variant? A full on Apple television? A larger screened iPad? Or something else entirely?

Which next-gen iOS device is also next on your iOS shopping list?

iMore store update: Now shipping iPhone and iPad accessories to more countries around the world for less than ever!

Up until now, ordering from the iMore store, if you live outside the U.S., has been a big bag of hurt. Many times shipping, customs brokerage, tax on shipping and brokerage, and tax on tax (?!) has worked out to an anger-inducing amount.

The answer is couriers and countries want to get paid. We've worked hard to get around this by opening Canadian stores, like Blueshop.ca but now we're taking things not just a step, but a giant leap further.

The iMore store helps support iMore, and helps us bring you great content, day in, day out. When you support the iMore store, you're supporting iMore and our content. That international readers couldn't express that support, frankly, sucked. But not any more!

Starting today, the iMore store -- and all the Mobile Nations stores -- are offering better, cheaper support for international customers -- and are also rolling out free shipping to AFP/FPO destinations around the globe!

It's been a long time coming, but here it is:

Poll: Will you be switching to a shared plan on AT&T or Verizon?

Will you be switching to a shared iPhone plan?

AT&T has announced their shared plans and like Verizon before them, you'll need a masters degree in applied arithmetic to figure them out -- or just be smart enough to cheat off our own Leanna Lofte who did all the heavy counting and showed you which is better between AT&T and Verizon and by how much! Of course, you'll still have to figure out if a shared plan is cheaper than your existing individual plan...

But once you crunch those numbers, we want to know what you've figured out? Will you be switching to a shared plan on AT&T? A shared plan on Verizon? If so, how many iPhones will you be paying to put on it? How many iPads? Anything else?

Or are you waiting for something, like maybe the iPhone 5 or iPad mini before you make up your mind?

Or maybe you just think there's something fishy about shared plans in general, and that bits should be bits, and you want not part of them?

Whatever you decide, even if it's to wait before deciding, we want to know! Check out Leanna's walkthrough and then come back here and vote in the poll up top and tell me the reasons why in the comments below!

Poll: Would you pay extra for FaceTime over cellular?

Would you pay extra for FaceTime over cellular?

Rumor has it, come this fall AT&T just might charge extra for FaceTime over cellular when the feature launches with iOS 6. Is that fair?

AT&T has a business to run and if they can get a few more dollars per user, or keep a little extra traffic off their much-maligned network, could that be win/win for them? Do you believe in paying per service so you get the best service?

How about if AT&T makes FaceTime 'Net-non-neutral and, if you pay, guarantees your packets get served first and you get the best, most crystal clear video possible?Or if paying more meant an extra 1GB or so of FaceTime data? Would that make a difference to your decision?

Or do you firmly believe that you already pay AT&T, and pay them well, for your data and you should darn well be able to do what you please with it? Especially if your capped already, and paying extra already for tethering, should AT&T be allowed to triple dip in your data pool?

As always, vote in our poll up top and then give me the details in the comments below. iMore nation, how do you feel about the idea of paying extra for your cellular FaceTime?
