Version control with Git made easy
Tower is a powerful Git client for OS X that makes using Git easy and more efficient. Users benefit from its elegant and comprehensive interface and a feature set that lets them enjoy the full power of Git.
Learning Git with Tower. Tower abstracts Git's complexity in an easy-to-use interface. For example, lots of actions can be performed simply via drag and drop, and mistakes can be undone easily.
Using Tower as an Expert. Advanced users can increase their productivity with features like single line staging, submodule support, or the file history.
single line staging (per-line committing)
direct Github, Beanstalk, and Bitbucket integration
Support for full-screen and Retina displays in OS X 10.7 Lion
many powerful drag-and-drop features include merge, rebase, push /pull to/from remote, apply stash, create new branch, etc.
Tabs on macOS Sierra: users with macOS 10.12 can now choose to open repositories in native Tabs (or, of course, in a new window as before).
The "Clone" dialog now also searches on GitHub: start typing a non-URL string in the "Remote URL" textfield and Tower will start searching for public repositories on GitHub.
Bundled Git version update: the Git binary that comes delivered with Tower is now on version 2.9.3.
Recommended authentication for Visual Studio Team Services accounts: "Personal Access Token" is now the suggested default authentication method.
Open a remote repository in your browser: by right-clicking the remote in Tower's sidebar and selecting "View remote in Browser".
Choose your favorite protocol: When cloning a repository from one of your service accounts, you can now choose the protocol that shall be used. In most cases, SSH and HTTPS will be available. You can also choose a "default" protocol in the account details (in the "Account" tab).
Open Quickly dialog is all new: "Open Quickly" (e.g. via CMD+SHIFT+O) is now much faster, more responsive, more clever (and can be closed via ESC).
Custom service accounts are here: In the "Services" view, you can now add an account for your self-managed server. This makes authentication for your own servers as easy as for the supported code hosting platforms like GitHub.
Clone and quit: If you start cloning a (potentially big) repository, you can now quit Tower. Unfinished clones can now be resumed after restarting the app.
Activity window: The standalone "Activity" window (which you can open from the main "Window" menu) was improved and reworked from the ground up. If you need to inspect remote activity often, this is for you.
