    I decided to give Mail.app a chance when i updated to ML so, I didn't installed sparrow.

    Today I decided to go back to sparrow since I like the interface better. Went to the app store to re-download and notice a lot of negative reviews (mostly of 100% cpu usage, crashing, growl notifications not working) of the latest version.

    So I want to know from users who have the latest version running if in fact the app its having these problems or is it just random cases.

    i've used the latest version of Sparrow on my Lion
    crashing happened for some times but not often,
    growl notification works well,
    CPU usage increased from previous version,
    :)

    Eh...

    Google bought it.

    Surprised they're still updating it at all.

    I finally broke down and got Sparrow when it was discounted, just before the sale news hit. The fact I'm not upset that there'll be few updates probably says a lot as to how well it's working.

    That said, I don't have Growl. Native ML notifications are fine.
