Installing GitHub für Mobilgeräte

To install GitHub für Mobilgeräte for Android or iOS, see GitHub für Mobilgeräte.

Managing accounts

You can be simultaneously signed into mobile with one user account on GitHub.com and one user account on GitHub Enterprise Server.

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 für Mobilgeräte may not work with your enterprise if you're required to access your enterprise over VPN.
