What seems to be everyone’s favorite email client, Sparrow, has received a significant update this afternoon. Sparrow for Mac upgraded to Retina graphics in the new version 1.6.2—something we have waited for from many apps lately. Furthermore, the app received support for Mountain Lion, which is currently seeded to developers on Apple’s Developer Center. Mountain Lion is expected to launch within the month for $19.99, so it is great to see support in place for an app that many of us use daily. Smaller changes include Notification Center support and a slew of bug fixes. As of now, the update is not available on the App Store, but is available for those who bought it on Sparrow’s website. Check out the full changelog: (via The Verge)
