What Sets Tower Apart?

Tower is all about making Git easy, powerful and productive for everyone.
Compared to Sublime Merge, this is what we think you will appreciate the most:

1. Intuitive Drag and Drop Support

Some Git actions can be extremely powerful but difficult to use. Tower's Drag and Drop feature makes these advanced commands accessible to anyone with just a couple of clicks.

Drag and Drop can be helpful for simple actions (like merges and pulls), but it can also be used for more complex operations, like rebasing: feel free to move commits around, cherry-pick, fix up or squash them — all without ever seeing the interactive rebase editor.

This is something that Sublime Merge completely lacks and that our users LOVE!

2. Remote Services Integration

Tower supports all the most popular Git hosting services, like GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, or Azure DevOps. This means you won't need to waste time dealing with logins and browser tabs, like you would if you were using Sublime Merge.

After adding your Services Accounts, you will have access to your entire list of repositories and you can handle everything right in the Git client. Feel free to perform actions such as:

  • Publishing a repository
  • Cloning an existing repository
  • Creating, merging, commenting, and closing a Pull Request

3. More Advanced Features

Compared to Sublime Merge, Tower has a more complete set of Git actions you can undo (by simply pressing ⌘ + Z) and a Merge UI that comes in handy when dealing with conflicts during merge sequences.

It also includes many other features you won't find in Sublime Merge, such as:

  • Branch Comparison
  • User Profile Management
  • Automatic Stashing and Fetching
  • Easy GPG Management and Status
