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.
They fixed the commenting keyboard bug on iPad!
The bug was promptly fixed. Thanks for tracking these reviews likes hawk, y’all are doing great with the app and it runs way faster than the webapp!
Updated from 2 to 5 stars.
Old review: When I start to type using the on-screen keyboard in a comment, if I type quickly, the panel dismisses and I have to reopen it to type. This is the most aggravating bug in the history of bugs. I will happily change my rating once this is fixed.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback, this was a frustrating bug! If you update to at least 1.2.0 this bug should be fixed.
Like a web browser but worse
Multiple tabs, bookmarking, sharing links, Handoff between devices, a history of everything you’ve looked at… these all features you get for free by using GitHub in a web browser, but things you aren’t allowed to do in this app.
Even worse, the app eats all GitHub links so you can’t even view a GitHub page in a browser if you want to.
I would rather have the web version of GitHub be more responsive and full featured at any screen size than have limiting platform-specific apps. This isn’t 2009 when the iPhone first came out, you can’t get away with having a limited “mobile” version of your website and a basic app with a limited subset of functionality anymore.
