If you guys follow MacPowerPC’s Facebook Page you probably are already aware that we are on vacation at the moment. This means that I had to leave my good buddy (my iMac G5) at home because I can’t take such a large machine overseas…. Can you picture someone at the airport taking an iMac G4 out of their carry on? LOL! Anyways, even while we’re away, I’m still trying to update our blog and found (on twitter) that someone installed Sparrow on a Mac PowerPC running 10.5/Leopard. I took a closer look and found that version 1.5 might work for us! I’m very glad to share this information with our readers and if you guys want to do the test and share the results with us, your comments will be most appreciated.
Sparrow 1.5 $9.99 – PowerPC 10.5 (Leopard) - http://mac.brothersoft.com/sparrow.html
This is a very powerful e-mail client and very minimalist as far as I can see. It’s easy to organize more than one e-mail account and has great support. Imap or Pop, it’s up to you. Also compatible with e-mail accounts like Yahoo + Hotmail that is very hard to sync these accounts. I think is a double plus.
Recently I took a look at the app’s website and there is a notice that Google bought this amazing app, so let’s hope they keep up the work or even make it better, but I’m not sure they will release something for PowerPC… anyways here is the link: http://www.sparrowmailapp.com/index.php
You guys know the drill very well, but make sure before you purchase any PowerPC app, contact the developers and make sure they will provide the right license for PowerPC architecture. :)
P.S.: Our reader Xenosage once mentioned that he had some issues to install an old version of Sparrow but just now I had a chance to find some sites that support the old version.
