GitHub allows developers to synchronize branches, clone repositories, and more. Pull requests, merge button, fork queue, issues, pages, wiki: all awesome features that make sharing easier. But those things are only great after you've pushed your code to GitHub.

Synchronize branches
The sync button pushes your chages to GitHub and pulls down other's changes in one operation. It notifies you know when you have changes you haven't pushed or there are new changes on GitHub you haven't pulled down.

Does not work with Mac OS X 10.6.x. The minimum required OS is now 10.7.x.

Thanks for the heads up Moxiesozo, I've fixed the listing.

Which is really too bad. Apparently this client "elies on a number of technologies which are not available in Mac OS X 10.6 or earlier" so this is understandable and there's other ways to have Git on the mac.

This client does work very well on 10.7 though I'm looking at downgrading if the 10.7.5 update doesn't work out.

Really excellent Git tool. It is the ideal complement to the command line. Polished and intuitive UI that makes everything even branching/merging very simple. Tiny quirks here and there, but the development team is actively working on it and very responsive and friendly.

You can tell there was definitely some good thought put into this app from the beginning.

Works very well for me for all my basic and common Git tasks (committing, pushing & pulling, branching). The UI is very polished, although I don't like the iOS style on OS X in general - but that's just my preference, I guess. No stability issues so far.

BTW, this application works fine with non-GitHub repositories.

How? You mean, how to use non-GitHub repositories?

You will need to create your local clone via the Terminal ("git clone "). After that, drop the newly created folder onto the drop area in the GitHub App, or create a new repository entry manually by clicking the "New Repository" button and choosing the path to the folder.

Thank you!!! First I tried it manually, but the drag and drop action worked fine!

Had a look at this for use with local repositories.

It has what appears to be a slick interface, and nice features, like scanning for local repositories. However, it is very buggy in this and will not work well with a local repository.

Don't know about use with Github site, but is not a replacement for Tower when working with local repositories.

Very impressed with this initial release, have to be honest and say I'm really glad I did not buy Tower now.

Ouch for Tower and Gitbox (and the just-underway Kickstarter Git client). Hard to compete with slick and free, they're really going to have to come up with some unique angle on git repo management.

Good luck!

Isn't this app for use with GitHub only? There you have your unique angle.
I prefer Assembla (www.assembla.com) anyway.

@Xplicit... good point... confirm someone, that it cannot work with your own repo not on GitHub?

Yes, you can use the GitHub Mac Client to work with any Git repository. The repositories don't have to be hosted on GitHub.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.

Clone repositories in one click
When you add repositories to GitHub for Mac, we automatically match them up with any organizations you belong to. Want to pull down a repository from GitHub.com? Check out the button on the website.

Powerfully simple branching
Branching is one of Git's best features. We've made it easy to try out remote branches, create new local branches and publish branches to share with others.
