GitHub is finally coming to mobile devices. At its annual GitHub Universe conference, the Microsoft-owned company today announced a ton of new features for its platform, including the new mobile app.
GitHub has long provided APIs that allowed third-party developers to create mobile apps for GitHub, but to date, we have never had an official app from the company itself.
With the new app, though, that’s changing. GitHub’s new app is built natively for mobile devices and allows users to browse their repositories, the GitHub community, access their notifications, review (and merge) pull requests, look through their code, and more. The app features dark mode support, too, and adapts nicely for larger screens like iPads.
GitHub is first testing the new app with iOS users as part of a beta, and it’s “coming soon” for Android. The company also announced a ton of other news at GitHub Universe today, including code navigation, code search, updates go GitHub SPnosors, GitHub Actions, and GitHub Packages.
