Sparrow 1.4 integrates with quicky-and-easy filesharing service CloudApp to enable user to include links to files without using the traditional email attachment functionality (which is still included in Sparrow for those who want to use it).
Users can "attach" files by dragging them into the body of the email from their desktop (or any directory on their computer). Sparrow will upload the file to CloudApp and automatically embed a download link into the body of the email.

Sparrow is a simple, nicely-designed IMAP email client for Mac desktops that got a lot of positive feedback when it first launched. Our initial impressions were positive as well. This latest update also includes various bug fixes and improvements to the app's interface.
Sparrow is available as a paid downloaded or as an ad-supported version, Sparrow Lite.
