Editing iCal Events in Snow Leopard

Snow Leopard makes looking at event details in iCal easier. In the Leopard version of iCal, you had to double-click an event to reveal only some information in a pop-up box; you then needed to click the Edit button (or press Command-E) to edit an item's information. In Snow Leopard, choose Edit > Show Inspector (or press Command-Option-I) to bring up a floating inspector that provides an editable view of any items selected in your calendar.

Sparrow 1.4

Send Article to a Friend

Sparrow has released version 1.4 of its eponymous email app. This update primarily involves performance and user-interface improvements, with everything from composing to synchronizing receiving a speed boost and some polish. Sparrow 1.4 also adds a few welcome new features, such as integration with the file sharing service CloudApp, pull-to-refresh, and support for proper first-to-last message sorting in conversation view. Several bug fixes round out the update. If Sparrow 1.4 prompts for your password at every launch, Sparrow suggests some possible workarounds until version 1.4.1 appears. ($9.99 new from the Mac App Store, free update, 12.0 MB, release notes)
