New minimalist mail software, Sparrow for Mac, in beta

updated 07:55 pm EDT, Mon October 4, 2010

Gmail, growl support, support soon other IMAP apps

Independent developers DINH Vit Ho and Dominique Leca have launched a new email application, Sparrow for Mac. Currently in beta, the software provides a minimalist presentation with threaded conversation support. It also provides Growl notifications and uses a status bar icon for quick access. Users can get a quick overview of their mail in the preview window, can open a new window for a specific item or open the full window to see both at once.

Sparrow can switch between multiple accounts -- It only supports Gmail currently but will integrate several IMAP-based email providers in the near future. The free beta can be downloaded now. Requirements have not been announced.

    ... this will definitely bear checking out for me. Not that I'm unhappy with Mail, but I definitely like the look here.
