    I beta-tested the iOS app. The design has been very good from day one, but it'd be nice if it was open-source and supported notifications for everything rather than just mentions.

      What's the use-case for using GitHub on mobile? Usually when I go to GitHub it's to either get some source code, add some source code, or check out a new project. I generally can't do any of those things from mobile because there's no dev. environment there.

        Maybe I'm not a common case, but I like use github as mini social media site. I comment on code, I star projects etc. I know that it seem kinda awkward.

          What does this mean, in the "mini social media" sense? I'd love the ability to add positive comments on people's projects without creating a Github issue or making a PR, but AFAIK this isn't a fearture.

          Ah, OK. I'm totally disconnected from that side of things, so that hadn't occurred to me. That makes complete sense.

    Finding this app in the App Store was really quite difficult. Searching "Github" didn't turn it up in the first ~100 results. I had to note that it said on the desktop App Store that the app was "#37 in Productivity" and then go find how to access that ranking list on my Iphone. It was at #40.

    First impressions are that the app looks polished, but I don't quite know why I'd regularly use it.
