I’ve been a Gmail user for better than five years now. Throughout that time period I’ve been in search of an email application for my desktop, and have continually been disappointed. As my frustration grew, and the Gmail interface improved, I all but conceeded that I would just use the web interface forever.
Then, the Sparrow beta was released. I was intrigued. It looked like something very different and it was geared towards Gmail users. The buzz around the Web sucked me in, so I decided to give it a try and really enjoyed the experience. There were a few bugs, but overall it was a refreshing way to manage email.
Their first official release – Sparrow 1.0 – popped up on the App Store recently, and I decided to give it a go. I was excited to see the final product of something I thought had a ton of promise, but could it become my new email application?
Mail.app is fabulous, fast, and dependable for every-day email communication needs. But now that many of us use Gmail for personal and professional use instead of an IMAP or POP account, Mail isn’t necessarily the perfect solution any more. A lot of Gmail’s productivity-enhancing features aren’t available on the desktop.
This isn’t just the case with Mail, but a lot of email clients lag behind when embracing Gmail. How awesome would it be to have a native Gmail client that goes above and beyond the competition? Read on to find out how close the newest Mac Gmail client, Sparrow, comes to fulfilling your dreams of email nirvana.
