Meet the Developer-Friendly Sourcetree Alternative You've Been Looking For

Tower is a powerful Sourcetree alternative with a beautiful interface, frequent updates and personal support from a team that is exclusively focused on making you more productive when working with Git.

But what exactly makes Tower superior to Sourcetree?
Let's have a look!

3 Powerful Features That Set Tower Apart

While Tower has many advanced features you won't find in other Git clients like Sourcetree, we want to highlight these 3 unique features to show you why Tower is so popular.

Let's get to know these features a bit better ↴

1. Undo Anything in Git

Git works like a time machine, so it makes sense to go back and revert any unwanted changes in the Git client as well. Whether you want to recover a deleted branch, revert a commit, or simply undo local changes, Tower has you covered — unlike Sourcetree.

While there are many ways to undo certain actions in Git, nothing is more intuitive than ⌘ + Z — so we built just that.

You can undo pretty much any action with a simple keyboard shortcut. This is one of Tower's most unique (and loved) features!

If you're just getting started with Git, feel free to explore its wonderful features and make mistakes! You can always go back in time, just like you would in Git.

2. Drag & Drop for Easy Organization

Tower increases your productivity by enabling you to quickly perform many common tasks via Drag & Drop - no need to go click-happy like in Sourcetree.

Simple actions, like merges, pulls, and creations can be achieved this way - but if you need something more complex, like rebasing, be assured: Tower won't let you down.

Feel free to perform interactive rebase actions by dragging multiple commits around, moving them, fixup'ing or squashing them - all without ever seeing the interactive rebase editor.

Some Git actions are extremely powerful, but difficult to use. Tower's Drag & Drop feature gives you easy access to these advanced features.

3. Manage Pull Requests Directly in the Git Client

Git is about collaboration, so it makes sense to handle Pull Requests right in the Git client.

Without ever leaving Tower, you can:

  • Create a Pull Request;
  • Merge a Pull Request;
  • Comment a Pull Request;
  • Close a Pull Request.

This feature is compatible with all the most popular Git hosting services, like GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, or Azure DevOps.

Why waste time dealing with logins and browser tabs, like you would if you were using Sourcetree?
