Disclaimer first: I'm part of the team behind the "Tower" Git Client (www.git-tower.com). 

Let me clarify: I am in no way complaining about competition itself. Competition is a necessary part of a healthy ecosystem. I'm glad we have competitors who spur us. And I'm glad they deliver their own solution to a problem.

A completely different story, however, is when your features (or even large parts of your product) are being copied. This is clearly not a "gray area" anymore, where we "draw inspiration from our competition".

Here’s a screenshot so you can decide for yourself:

It seems someone can't deal with competition... giving a bad review because a competitor has a similar product brought to the market? Yeah very professional.

Well, whole idea is good. However it was already realised in similar apps, wasn't it?
@christinamartin6 I don't know anything about Linux. On Windows, there's TortoiseGit (and TortoiseSVN for Subversion). On Mac, there's only one other git client created around similar concept (Finder integration), GitFinder is the second one (as far as I know). So yes, the idea is not original, but I dare to say the implementation is superior to that other product. There was also SCPlugin (for Subversion) for Mac, back in the years 2000. It used the old (officially supported by Apple) Finder contextual menu plugin API (for menu commands) and unsupported Finder binary patching for icon badges. It died slowly after release of macOS 10.6 (Snow Leopard), which disabled and killed the above mentioned API.
