What is SourceTree?

Say goodbye to the command line – use the full capability of Git and Mercurial in the SourceTree desktop app. Manage all your repositories, hosted or local, through SourceTree's simple interface.

What is Tower?

Discard single lines of code. Cherry-pick commits. Work with Submodules. Use git-svn and git-flow... Tower is as powerful as Git - but without the sharp edges.
