There's no way to use it without sign in, not even open a local git repo.

Useless. Does not allow for connecting to a private repo using the basic account. Don't bother with this software.

You have to buy a license for commercial or private use.

In general a good software. Since version 6.0.0 it does NOT ALLOW personal repositories any more in the free version. Only public repositories are allowed.

It's miles better than SourceTree.

It's fast. It's got tree view.

You have to login to use it though.

It's not exactly free.

It's still not as fast as the CLI.

Very nice interface, but you can't work with private repos on the free version, which is super lame.

Hands down the best Git client out there right now. Unfortunately they recently removed the ability to access private repos as a free user, but if you don't need that or are willing to pay this is the best for sure. Gorgeous/responsive UI, super simple setup and connections with repo services, and the only Git feature that I'm aware is missing is subtrees, but submodules are supported.

Dark theme by default, really good ergonomics

It's the best client out there by far, and it runs on Linux, which most clients don't do.

Since version 6.0.0 GitKraken cannot be used freely any more for private repositories. The license policy changed. Earlier versions still support private repositories.

Best GUI as a Git client with very handy features like fully graphical interactive git rebase.
Unfortunately, Axosoft has recently reduced available features with the free version. Private git repositories cannot be opened anymore, only public ones (open source).

I tried to install it at 4 different machines including Windows 7 and Windows 10.

It starts blindly some processes and no GUI is displayed.

Meanwhile On Mac it looks amaizng.

Make sure you have an internet connection and it isn't being blocked.

Actually it was 3 years ago and yes - it was in the intranet. Currently it’s the best software I have now after VS Code. Perfectly works with submodules, LFS, pull requests, integrations. 5 stars from me
