Working Copy - Powerful Git client for iOS

By Applied Phasor Free

Developer's Description

Access Git repositories on the go. Clone, edit, commit and push while allowing other apps access to repositories.Git is a important part of our work-life and iOS can take part in this. The ability to commit even when offline has added utility on a device that moves in and out of network coverage. Cloning repositories gets you a local copy on your iOS device with commits for all branches. You can browse the content from within the app and make changes. Other applications supporting the document picker, WebDAV or x-callback-url has access to these files. Changes made can be committed and the commits can in turn be pushed back to the remote.The idea of doing significant programming on iOS might seem far fetched when you are used to a large screen, a physical keyboard and a full IDE. But just as it turned out that not every email is serious prose, then not everything that goes on in Git is significant programming. Sometimes you just want to update a TODO file or make adjustments to your Jekyll site. Sometimes you just need to add a file the designer sent after hours.If you ever make reminders about small things to do with the code-base, then you should give Working Copy a try. You will spend less time moving stuff around and you will get much better commit messages when you write them for fixes that are still fresh in your mind. You won't be leaving your computer behind any time soon, but sometimes it is faster to just fix things with the device in your hand.Even if you never edit a line of code on iOS, Working Copy is a great companion for reviewing and discussing code. A graph of your commits lets you zoom out for a overview of of the commit tree or zoom in for specifics about each commit, with speed and beauty you wont find in desktop Git applications. Review the changes your files have gone through with a diff viewer that is great for text and images. Preview your HTML or Markup files or view the source code with syntax highlighting for most popular programming languages. There is even hex-dump mode for that obscure occasion.Working Copy is a free download but you need to pay to unlock the ability to push commits back to remote servers. There is no venture capital, large company or ads funding development and your support through in-app purchase directly sustains further development.
