Sparrow email client for Mac reaches 1.0, lands in Mac App Store


Feb 9, 2011
Sparrow email client Sparrow, the gorgeous Mac email client released late last year, is now at version 1.0 and up for sale in the Mac App Store. Previous versions weren’t stable enough to replace entirely, but Sparrow has overcome its growing pains to become a solid Mail alternative. With support for multiple accounts, and UI design that borrows heavily from Twitter for Mac, it’s no surprise that Sparrow almost immediately hit the top of the Mac App Store’s bestseller list. Sparrow 1.0 does have its drawbacks, though. It still only supports Gmail (and Google Apps email accounts), which might be a dealbreaker for some. Anyone who’s not using Gmail should wait for version 1.1, which will reportedly add support for all IMAP accounts. The $10 pricetag is reasonable for what you get, and anyone using a beta version will find it worth upgrading for the performance improvements and Gmail label support. One little quirk to be aware of: if you have a beta version of Sparrow installed, you may need to delete it or move it out of your Applications folder before you can buy Sparrow 1.0 from the Mac App Store. Otherwise, the App Store will think you already have the app installed.
