GitHub for Android is a version control tool for software development teams to stay connected and work in sync no matter where their team members are. The app allows users to perform actions that do not require a complex development environment, such as browsing through notifications, checking and responding to issues and pull requests, reviewing and merging pull requests, as well as neatly organizing their issues with labels, assignees, and projects.

As someone who uses GitHub daily, we wondered if its mobile solution is as good as its web counterpart. Here are some GitHub for Android bugs we spotted while testing.

GitHub for Android is a handy tool for professionals familiar with the Git workflow. I appreciate the opportunity to access my projects while miles away from my laptop, review pull requests, and quickly respond to them on-the-go. I haven’t found any major issues apart from the bug with marking projects as starred and a couple of minor UI inaccuracies.
