Great tool - very stable and intuitive. I use that too everyday and I don't want to miss it - keeps things simple. I use it on windows and mac. Don't get me wrong - I really love git in the terminal - but for a lot of reasons a GUI makes absolutely sense...

The support team is great. Fast response times and very committed to their job! thanks

Great Git GUI. They now offer Tower Pro for free for students, teachers, universities, and schools. You just need a .edu email address or another form of enrolment.

I bought a year license and I use it at work everyday.

It is sexy from the outside, but it's just not simple to use and not well thinked.

  • The PR feature is not working
  • Sometimes I lost stashes (it told me it was saved, but no)
  • The search feature is aweful (you have to select if you look for a git message, an author or a file... Yes, this 70$ app isn't able to guess it for you !)
  • To select a branch, you have to select it on a simple dropdown without any kind of search field. When using it professionally in a gitflow, that means having to seek for your branch among hundreds of branches.
  • It asks for a lot of shit when you change your branch (Do you want to stash ? How do I call the stash ? Did you notice this unversionned file that I will not destroy anyway because it's fu**king not versionned...)

Long story short : sexy ui, aweful UX. I won't say I gain time with it - and it doesn't make git easier in my professional life. Better investing in learning git commands, you'll have to learn them to fix Tower errors anyway...

Perfect for student. It's completely free for 1-year and if you still need it, you email them and they renew your subscription for free.

This is a very great piece of software which helps me and my colleagues a lot in our collaborative model development.

Plus, the Tower team is super-friendly and has always replied to my emails very fast. I wish, all app developers would be like that!

The ability to undo mistakes by just hitting cmd-Z stands for the philosophy of Tower: Making the use of Git easy, intuitive and accessible for noobs. In the time I am working with Tower I had never the need to run Git in the terminal – and that’s great.
