Fork vs SmartGit: What are the differences?

Developers describe Fork as "Fast and Friendly Git Client for Mac". Manage your repositories without leaving the application. Organize the repositores into categories. Fork's Diff Viewer provides a clear view to spot the changes in your source code quickly. On the other hand, SmartGit is detailed as "A Git Graphical User Interface client". It is a graphical Git client with support for SVN and Pull Requests for GitHub and Bitbucket. It runs on Windows, macOS and Linux.

Fork and SmartGit can be primarily classified as "Source Code Management Desktop Apps" tools.

Decisions about Fork and SmartGit

I explored many Git Desktop tools for the Mac and my final decision was to use Fork. What I love about for that it contains three features, I like about a Git Client tool.

It allows * to handle day to day git operations (least important for me as I am cli junkie) * it helps to investigate the history * most important of all, it has a repo manager which many other tools are missing.
