Sparrow announces new features

“Sparrow promises some future Twitter and LinkedIn integration. Clearly Sparrow isn’t just a Gmail client, it is becoming a powerful messaging and context platform in itself.”

(Via Sparrow announces new features at TechCrunch Disrupt.)


Love Sparrow, not 100% behind the idea of any sort of social inbox. Facebook mail is obvious, and support for Twitter DM’s only in an app is very appealing.  I think it would help make people view Twitter as a real form of communication rather then another broadcast mechanism that some see now.

(And Yeah, I kinda hate that I’m linking to something related to TechCrunch)

Apple is Inconsistant

So Apple has the pull down to refresh thing in the sdk, works amazing for all sorts of things. Refresh twitter, gowalla, etc. I wish everyone would implement it instead of a button. Like tumblr, and especially Mail! Why doesn’t apple use the nicest method for things in it’s own app?
