Sparrow Beta 5

Labels! Here they are! 
Thanks for your patience. 
Label implementation on Beta 5 is really basic but be sure that we will add a lot more useful features in the next release.
Sparrow Beta 5 will begin a new full sync between your gmail account and your Mac. Labels will be the last thing to sync so don’t panic if they don’t show up right away. 
The app should be syncing for some time at first launch. We had to do this in order to improve Sparrow’s behavior and overhaul performance.
