There’s a lot you can do on GitHub that doesn’t require a complex development environment – like sharing feedback on a design discussion, or reviewing a few lines of code. GitHub for iOS lets you move work forward wherever you are. Stay in touch with your team, triage issues, and even merge, right from the app. We’re making these tasks easy for you to perform, no matter where you work, with a beautifully native experience.
You can use GitHub for iOS to:
• Browse your latest notifications
• Read, react, and reply to Issues and Pull Requests
• Review and merge Pull Requests
• Organize Issues with labels, assignees, projects, and more
• Browse your files and code
• Discover new and trending repositories

• Introducing feed roll-ups: see similar items grouped together within the feed.
• Reduced app size by stripping binary symbols.
• Use the latest emojis in emoji autocomplete in issues, pull requests and discussions.

Ratings and Reviews
Can’t switch account
The app seems pretty nice thus far but I wrongfully logged into another account and now it seems that there is no way to change it. When I sign out and sign back in, I’m only prompted to give permission for the initial account (also, why is asking for authorization every sign in?). Doubt that this is how is intended probably a bug? Would reconsider review once I can properly use it with my account.
As expected the switch account was unintentional and now is back to normal. So far I had no problems and I love having a proper app layout rather than the mobile version (that wasn’t bad at all btw). You could argue that now you have yet another app to keep checking for notifications but hey.. it is what it is.
Developer Response ,
Sorry for the confusion! We're working on making this experience better. In the meantime, to login with another account, go to GitHub.com in Safari and logout. Then you should be able to login with another account in the app.
has potential but too many dealbreakers
I truly want to like this app but the bugs that have been around since I first used it are driving me crazy. Every time I add a new favorite it’ll disappear from my list a few minutes later, sometimes right before my eyes it’ll remove itself from my list. On top of that, the search functionality is atrocious, and way too limited. We can’t even search our own repos! The search functionality we do have for the rest of the site leaves a lot to be desired and doesn’t even return the same results as the website. We should be able to search our starred repos, our own repos as well as choose how our own repos are filtered, this is bottom of the barrell functionality that should be a no brainer. If its possible on the website, it should be possible in the application. Im honestly shocked at how little functionality this app offers as the official github client.
lastly, iOS 14 required now? you cant be serious. time to write a good github client on my own I guess, supporting iOS 13 isnt difficult and theres absolutely nothing earth shattering offered in the 14 SDK that github needs to function. id be embarassed if i wrote an app this shoddy for such a high profile company.
Update: This seems to be more of an issue with Safari. I tried so many things to get this working I’m not sure why it finally worked, but the last thing I did was completely close ALL apps (including Settings), disable Safari cookies, close Settings, reopen Settings and enable cookies. I had tried so many versions of this and more trying to sign in it’s anyone’s guess as to why it worked this time.
“Cookies must be enabled to use GitHub.” Safari cookies are enabled and I can’t sign in, just keep hitting the cookies message. Logging in directly with Safari works. There are several other reviews stating the same.
