And there's even more...
These are the major features, but the app is rapidly improving and getting extended with new functionality as the GitHub API gets extended. Here are some more niceties the app includes:
- Multiuser support: Use the app with multiple GitHub accounts*
- GitHub Enterprise: Support for your companies own installation of GitHub*
- Search: Look up users and repositories
- Username and issue completion (as seen on GitHub)
- Get notified about GitHub status warnings
- Open almost every GitHub.com URL in iOctocat, by prefixing it with ioc:// instead of https://
- 1Password integration (can be used when adding an account)
Private repositories and access to notifications require the Basic upgrade. Recieving push notifications for your GitHub notifications, use of multiple accounts and support for GitHub Enterprise require the Pro upgrade. The upgrades are available as in-app purchases.
What users say about the app
At Simple, engineers and customer relations folks use iOctocat to keep up. We use GitHub.com for public open source projects and GitHub Enterprise for internal code and iOctocat connects us to both.
– Will Maier, Simple
As Github is a central part of my daily work, so is iOctocat.
– Andreas Linde, HockeyApp
iOctocat is the perfect way to keep up with GitHub on iOS. It makes it ridiculously easy and comfortable to comment on issues or merge pull requests right from your phone.
I just replaced the Facebook app on my iPhone’s home screen with iOctocat.
I get more use out of it.
