I’ve been wanting to try the new sparrow mail client for the Mac ever since it was released. Up until now though, it’s been a Gmail only client, and I’m probably the only geek out there who hates Gmail. With a passion. Now it’s been updated to work with MobileMe and so far I’m rather impressed.
It definitely takes its interface cues from an iPad UI perspective, which is nice, because they’re not conforming to all the conventions that every other mail application on the planet seems to.
There’s definitely some kinks I’m finding, but nothing that I don’t think will be addressed in a future update.
I’ll give it a try for a week as my default email client and if I don’t find myself missing the standard Apple Mail app I’ll probably stick with it.
