SourceTree continues to be my favorite GIT GUI, especially for viewing history and changes (which is my main use for a git GUI; I use the command line for most other things). I have tried Tower, Fork, Sublime Merge, and several others. SourceTree is the only GUI I have found that can show the difference between uncommitted changes and any commit. And it does this in a very natural way: the current state is a node, just like each commit. SourceTree can also show the text of an annotated tag -- and that is another thing that few, if any, other GIT GUIs can do. Also I find the history layout very efficient: a single window shows commits, uncommitted changes and the diff between any two commits (or your uncommitted changes and any commit). One weakness is resolving merge conflicts using "Theirs" or "Mine". Its merge conflict support is just fine for working through a file line by line: you can use any 3-way merge tool, such as Apple's FileMerge. But occasionally I just want to say "use my local copy" or "use the remote version" and in that situation I find it difficult to know which is which. I think Fork handles that a bit better. Overall I have found it to be quite robust. It has occasional cosmetic bugs, and Atlassian can be slow to fix those. The one bug I currently know about is that if one selects text from the commit info pane and types ctrl-C, it ignores the selection. Fortunately the contextual menu has a Copy command that does the job. And there's also a "copy commit hash" menu item, which is useful for starting an interactive rebase on the command line. I have found SourceTree to be the best GIT GUI for me, at any price. But they each have their strengths and weaknesses. If you spend a lot of time coding then it's worth trying several.

In order to use the app you are required to setup an account with Atlassian. This will set you up with an account with Bitbucket - and getting you signed up to Bitbucket is undoubtedly the main reason for Atlassian to make this app free. Offering a meagre 1Gb of storage, Bitbucket is among the most expensive git repository hosts around, and therefore has never enjoyed wide adoption among small developers. Its arch-nemesis is GitLab: a service that offers unlimited, free private repositories to all - with just about every feature available in Bitbucket, and then some. But once you get through your Bitbucket registration, you will be greeted by an interface which looks very much like a java app that has received some polish. The 'native' feel of a MacOS app is certainly not there, windows look odd, navigation is clumsy and unintuitive. But worse still: the app will only help you automatically connect to accounts in Bitbucket or GitHub - no GitLab, nor any of its other competitors. I'm guessing it may be possible to connect to these other services (just as you can connect to GitLab repos from GitHub's own desktop app), but that is certainly not the way the app was meant to be used. All in all: pass. Straight to the trash, and back to using Tower, until I find a reasonable substitute that won't charge me a subscription fee.

SourceTree is an outstanding GIT client for viewing history and changes. The layout is very efficient and powerful: a single window shows commits, uncommitted changes and the diff between any two commits (or your uncommitted changes and any commit). SourceTree can do much more, of course, but I personally find that viewing history is where git GUI clients really shine compared to the command line. I have tried other git GUI clients, including Tower, GitKraken and GitUp. But I find SourceTree far more comfortable and efficient than the others -- especially for viewing history and changes. Still, it is worth trying a few to see what works for you. Having to register in order to use the program is a minor nuisance, but once done it's done. Personally I think it is very generous of Atlassian to make such an outstanding program available for free. I'd be lost without it.

Was a good tool once but since login/registration obligation it became unusable for me. The description text here on MU could also use an update, ,"Atlassian has acquired SourceTree, and it is now free for a limited time!" is not correct.

Since Oct 2016 they also decided to shut down the commenting of blog articles, probably to get rid of all the negativity regarding the latest dozens of missteps they took...

Great tool until version 2.2 released. Now pointlessly (from a user perspective at least) requires an Atlassian account login, and the login panel appears hopelessly broken. Fortunately, If you accidentally update via the app, you can still find 2.1 in your Trash can. Grab it out before it's gone (2.1 is fantastic)..

For those users not comfortable with the command line and even those who are I would suggest using Sourcetreeapp.com (free Git & Mercurial client for Mac and Windows) with Bitbucket.org (free unlimited web private code repositories) which I have been testing out over the last quarter and all works great with the added benefit of a lot less typing in the command line and with 'MacUpadte Desktop' to keep the app updated deploying a powerful distributed version control system (DVCS) is an easy and painless process.

I purchased SourceTree before Atlassian took over and it has always been my favourite, "go to" client for git/hg. However, the UI/UX changes in 1.9.0 have left me very disappointed. It's almost unfathomable to me that the changes to file viewing and management were seen as positive by the SourceTree development team. It's just awful as far as I'm concerned, and I hope they change it back. Otherwise, I'll be looking for a replacement.

Indispensable tool for managing both Git and Mercurial repos with a consistent UI. Surprising that it's free, especially given the constant stream of fixes and improvements. No matter how good you are with the git and hg command line tools, this makes it easier to browse and compare changes across any range of commits. Every day I use this to review all my changes, catch things I missed, and update my dev notes before committing.

I like being able to stage/unstage/reverse lines/hunks/files. I was happy to learn just now how to see history for specific files (right-click, "Log Selected..."). It's nice seeing when I'm ahead of or behind the remote repo; not as helpful as if I were working on a team, but still helpful.

SourceTree is pretty solid GUI for Mercurial & Git. If you *only* use Git, you might want to take a look at Tower, but I use Hg at work, so I needed something that could do both. Functionally speaking, this works pretty well. The diff pane is quite useful. I generally review all my changes in there before doing commits; it's a great way to ensure I didn't forget anything in my dev notes, and it helps me decide what the commit summary should focus on. As expected, you can configure it to use whatever external tools you want for diffing and conflict resolution. (Oddly enough, despite all the apps competing in this space, I still find Apple FileMerge is the best one. Kaleidoscope is beautiful, but because it still can't ignore whitespace changes, it's basically useless.) What I don't love about this app is the crummy GUI. I don't care if it's pretty; that's not the issue (I actually really like the app icon; everything else is…meh, but whatever). It's just very poorly designed. Every repo opens in its own window. There's no single-window mode that lists your repos in a sidebar (in fact, your repos are listed in yet another, ill-conceived "Bookmarks" window that you have to leave floating around if you want to see an overview, as you simply can't get any of that information anywhere else in the app). I really dislike having to cycle through a big stack of large windows, especially with that awful Bookmarks window being one of them. Each of these repo windows has to be manually customized to get the sidebar/pane widths and other view settings the way you want, and to make matters worse, it doesn't even remember them reliably. All of the window adjustments you make are routinely forgotten when you close/re-open the app. Sometimes it's just comically bad, e.g. for no apparent reason, the sidebar in one of the windows will have resized itself to fill 90% of the window, and everything else is completely screwed up and has to be dragged back where you wanted it, all over again. This sort of stuff just drives me nuts. Lastly, there's the sync feature that's supposed to watch for file/repo changes and indicate when you've got unsaved changes, and any pending incoming/outgoing commits. For me, none of that stuff ever updates until I switch to the app and start interacting with one of the windows. At that point, it usually noticed which files have been modified, but it's not smart enough to recognize that I've already pulled or pushed anything until I click the sync button. Supposedly it should do all this automatically, but for me it never has. (I do a lot of these things outside of the app, on the command line, which I prefer for anything that doesn't really need a GUI.) This is something MacHg (RIP) did very well. For the price, I really can't complain too much about this app. It does get the job done, and that's the most important thing, but it manages to annoy me quite often in the process, and I would very happily pay for something better if one of the nicer apps like Tower actually supported Mercurial. In the meantime, anyone who needs to work with both Hg and Git should check this out.

Probably the best GUI for OS X. It's a bit overwhelming if you don't know git, but once you know the basics it adds some essential control to the command line. Some better documentation would be appreciated.

Pretty solid, was using this in parallel to Tower to evaluate, and it's turned out that SourceTree is by far the better client. Slightly harder to use because of all the extra features, but just having Git Flow embedded is a win all-round.

SourceTree is a five star product in all respects. The interface is beautiful, it works very well, is extremely stable, and the support is simply outstanding. I looked for a long time to find a native OSX application for Mercurial that was at least as nice as CornerStone is for Subversion, and SourceTree is it. -- Actually, I think SourceTree has an even better interface than CornerStone. Prior to SourceTree I tried probably most of the free and paid OSX clients for Hg. For a while I used MacHg (free), but after discovering SourceTree, there was no going back. I was happy to pay for something that made Hg even more of a joy to use. I use ST pretty much all day, every day. It's one of my favorite apps for OSX.

Great piece of software; normalizes your Git and Mercurial repositories. Integrates with Github, Bitbucket, and Kiln (it'll even create the repositories using their APIs, as well). Slick interface. All it needs is a better icon and perhaps support for other CVS's like CVS, SVN, or Bazaar.
