Why I Don’t Like Sparrow

23 02 2011

Sparrow, Gmail client for Mac: http://www.sparrowmailapp.com/. Seems to be an email client hype.

Well, I use Gmail to subscribe to mailing lists. Sometimes hundreds of emails per day. An email client will download all those emails. On a disk-space-limited laptop (did I forget to mention that it’s also thin, light, and expensive?), it’s fundamentally incompatible.

Would be great if it simply “viewed” the emails. And perhaps integrate with Twitter or Facebook status updates. With no guarantee that it does, it seems quite risky to buy.
