SourceTree vs GitKraken vs Tower: What are the differences?
SourceTree, GitKraken, and Tower are all Source Code Management Desktop Apps, allowing you to manage your repositories on the desktop rather than through a browser. SourceTree is built by Atlassian and Bitbucket. GitKraken is the only one of the three that supports Linux.
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.
