Sparrow 1.1

by Lex Friedman

iOS-inspired email software Sparrow [1] has been updated to version 1.1. Starting with this incarnation of the software, Sparrow now supports many more types of email accounts; in addition to Gmail, you can now use the software with MobileMe, Yahoo!, AOL, and any IMAP account. Also new is support for Gmail’s Priority Inbox feature, an Unread View, per-account signatures, and a formatting bar for composing richer messages. Sparrow now offers support for multitouch gestures, contact groups, and Gravatars [2], too. In addition, close to two dozen bugs have been fixed. ($9.99 via the Mac App Store, free update, free lite version available, 10.2 MB)
