Note: GitHub for mobile is currently in beta for GitHub Enterprise Server 3.0 and subject to change.
GitHub for mobile is available as an Android and iOS app. GitHub for mobile is generally available for GitHub.com users and in public beta for users of GitHub Enterprise Server 3.0+.
GitHub for mobile gives you a way to do high-impact work on GitHub quickly and from anywhere. GitHub for mobile is a safe and secure way to access your GitHub data through a trusted, first-party client application.
With GitHub for mobile you can:
- Manage, triage, and clear notifications
- Read, review, and collaborate on issues and pull requests
- Search for, browse, and interact with users, repositories, and organizations
- Receive a push notification when someone mentions your username
For more information about notifications for GitHub for mobile, see "Configuring notifications."
To install GitHub for mobile for Android or iOS, see GitHub for mobile.
You can be simultaneously signed into mobile with one user account on GitHub.com and one user account on GitHub Enterprise Server.
For GitHub Enterprise Server, push notifications for direct mentions are currently supported on iOS and coming soon to Android. GitHub Enterprise Server uses background fetch to support push notifications without sending your information to a third-party service, so you may experience a delay in receiving push notifications.
GitHub for mobile may not work with your enterprise if you're required to access your enterprise over VPN.
You must install GitHub for mobile 1.4 or later on your device to use GitHub for mobile with GitHub Enterprise Server.
To use GitHub for mobile with GitHub Enterprise Server, GitHub must be version 3.0 or greater, and your enterprise owner must enable mobile support for your enterprise. For more information, see "Release notes" and "Managing GitHub for mobile for your enterprise."
