Sparrow Takes Flight

Ellis Hamburger:

The way Leca uses his Mac reflects his view of how applications should look. “I never use the e-mail Preview Pane in Sparrow, or the navigational sidebar,” he told told me. Instead he leaves Sparrow in its natural state: a simple list of e-mails that takes up a small fraction of his screen. In this way, he can work on other projects while seeing his e-mail inbox, because to him, the e-mail inbox is almost exactly like a to do list.

Sparrow’s design is very interesting, but it doesn’t fit with the way I use e-mail. I like to have a huge mail window that’s hidden when I’m not doing e-mail.
