    Pros: 

    - Works great - Clear and simple UX - Fast

    Cons: 

    - The auth flow breaks sometimes - Some of the action names don't resonate well with Git (I struggle a bit to checkout remote branches)

    I switched to Tower about a year ago after experiencing poor performance from my previous system. I was a bit reluctant due to the pricing but it's been worth the money for my personal use.

    Sten has used this product for one year.

@rrhoover They've been around before GitHub released its client. I've been using Tower for almost 3 years. It's way advanced in terms of functionality compared to Github client. Yet simple enough to setup and start pushing commits :) Rebase/Stash/Multiple Remote repos/etc all incorporated in Tower. I also think that Tower has a better commit-history browser. If you finding yourself using CLI with Github client, I would recommend you to have a look at Tower.

I've used GitHub's Mac client in the past. Is this a major improvement, @nikitakorotaev (or anyone else)?

I've been using Tower for almost 3 years now. I never tried GitHub's client because I was already using this one. ;) This actually speaks to an interesting topic: it's hard to get users to switch to a new product. http://jobstobedone.org/news/bet...

Same story here; been using it for 3+ years, before GitHub had an app. Tried switching, couldn't do my whole workflow, happily returned to Tower & never looked back.
