I like the grouping of repositories and use it for that and easier pulls and pushes. However, one bug is that when connecting to a respository for the first time, for some repositories, it pops up an authentication window, I enter my password, and it keeps popping it back up…and I cna thus never access that repository. Happens to about 25% of my repositories. Using Bitbucket. Frustrating issue that I hope can be fixed because it’ll be a great tool after that.

My git needs are pretty simple. I create git repositories for each project I work on, save versions as I go, use Dropbox to sync my various computers, and sometimes have to climb back into a previously saved version of something to rescue some data or compare some files. I don't use collaboration tools and I don't do anything with branches. For these simple needs, Gitbox is perfect. I'm not a command line junkie, and I never could make sense of git on the command line. I've tried various GUI apps to help me use git, and Gitbox has been hands-down the most intuitive and simplest to use. Yay, I don't have to stop being productive while I sink into a git learning curve. I can just use Gitbox and move on. Drag a folder onto the Gitbox window and it gets converted into a git repo. Stage all files (it's a one-click process in Gitbox, just right-click on the list of files and choose Stage All). Press the Commit button and there you go. I couldn't be happier with it.

It's been 5 years since this app was last updated, and I still use it periodically. Having used a fair number of SVN and Git clients, GitBox is, the easiest versioning experience I've ever had the pleasure of using for simple code projects (more complicated projects need a more full-featured Git client, and of course graphics and video need a significantly different solution altogether). It would be really nice to have a few more features, such as amending previous commits, but otherwise this is the the friendliest versioning app I've ever used.

I’ve tried almost every Git app known to man (Github for Mac, Tower, Git X, Git Y, etc. on and on) … Gitbox is awesome. The only feature I really, really, really wish this app had was per line staging. Imagine right-clicking a file & seeing “Select lines to stage” in the contextual menu … it would be so nice. Come on, Oleg ;)

Everything greyed out, no ability to use app at all

I’ve been using this app for 5 years now. It’s good. It gets the job done. And it’s very simple to use. BUT it hasn’t been updated since 2012, so there are bugs with it. It will crash. And if you have loads of branches, it will be constantly working on refreshing and eating up computer resources, which is unfortunate because it’s a great program. That all being said, I still use it daily for > 90% of my git work, bugs and all.

Too bad. This was a great app.

Thanks for a nice, clean, simple tool. I had only one problem with Gitbox, and I just solved it by creating an App Shortcut - I set Command Shift R to match “Show in Finder” and now Gitbox truly makes me happy. I find this far easier to navigate and requires less button pushing than any other Git GUI I’ve used. Would by again in a heartbeat. Excellent, every time

This was the best git client out there. A good balance of being able to get things done without a lot of feature clutter. Integrated well with other tools. The problem is there have been no updates since 2012, and OS X has come a long way. The developer never responds to questions. Must try to find something else. It’s unfortunate that this isn’t maintained.

Have been using/trying to use this app for a while. I would love for it to be my primary Git GUI. But it just flakes out occassionally with little rhyme or reason. Right now on my main computer it displays a repo as just empty. No revisions, no notes, no nothing. Try wiping preferences, reinstalling app, etc, no joy. But it works mostly. happily on my laptop. Have sent in a bug report/support request too, no response. May just be that it hasn’t been updated in 2+ years? Buyer beware. Promise, but not reality yet.
