Fork has become my first and preferred Git client (on both Mac and Win), before that i used a mix of SourceTree and GitHub Desktop (sorry Tower i can't pay 60$/year for a git client)

it's very fast, faster than SourceTree, very nice, good UI, all the features we need daily (GitHub desktop is still too naive)

i just hope they can keep up with the development (how can it be free not being opensource?=

I bought a copy but find myself using SourceTree by preference. Fork is very good and worth a try, but I prefer Fork because: * SourceTree lets me compare the current uncommitted state to any prior commit. Fork cannot, nor can any other git client I have tried, including Tower and sublime merge. SourceTree does it superbly; the local changes are shown in history as the top node, rather than in a separate panel as Fork does. * I find the display more readable. The font Fork uses is small and there's no way to adjust it. * SourceTree can show the text of an annotated git tag (though it's a bit clumsy). Fork doesn't support it at all. Of course Fork has advantages as well. The interactive rebase support is better than SourceTree. The merge support may be better. I found Fork tech support unresponsive (i.e. no better than SourceTree), which is disappointing for a paid app. I sent several emails and never got a reply. Fork is promising and I intend to keep an eye on it, along with sublime merge.

Fork is *not* free. At least it isn't free anymore. On one of my Macs I got a friendly nag screen yesterday, asking(!) me to purchase Fork in order to fund further development of the application. I immediately checked on their website, and indeed - there is a price of 49.99$ listed, together with the subtitle 'free evaluation'. So at some point in time they obviously switched to a kind of shareware model - use is free within certain limits, but then they ask you to buy the software. Which is exactly what I did, mostly because I like the tool and have used it for a couple of years now, and I think it's a fair price for the value. While it's a pity that Fork isn't free anymore, I really appreciate that I now have a sensible option to support its development and contribute to Fork becoming better and staying in the market instead of becoming another tool I have to replace sooner or later. I hope some more users will follow suit.

My Tower (git app) license expired and the app literally stopped working. Being sick of paying annual fees I tried Fork and I won't be going back. Oh my. Easy to use, fast, intuitive. I can't fault Fork.

Program is excellent, but will be very reluctant to change from other more well-established tools unless the developer clearly outlines what the charges will be, once it's out of beta. Would be willing to beta test, but only if I knew that this is not going to be subscription-ware, and what the pricing is likely to be.

havent had a single problem with fork. very intuitive and fast. id like some info on the pricing after it exits beta status, because there are several great git clients out there in the paid field. updates fly in on a regular basis, so im happy to support the project if the price is right.

Can't tell if this will be free when it launches or not. Can't find the developer on twitter to ask. We shall see.

It may soon well be that this kind of utensil will replace a traditional fork, as we spend more and more time in a digital world and consume dishes made of ones and zeroes. But anyway, Fork is a very nice desert fork. Other forks, which are more like dinner forks, including Tower and SmartGit, allow you to consume a main course and are meant for a 'serious' food. This Fork is light and shiny, and is just right for a sweet desert. Personally, I have a sweet tooth and can practically live on deserts! And if I needed to, I'm pretty sure Fork would allow me to handle a salad and a sautéed vegetables dish too.
