GitHub Mobile

Triage, collaborate, and manage your work on GitHub from your mobile device.

About GitHub Mobile

GitHub Mobile is available as an Android and iOS app.

GitHub Mobile gives you a way to do high-impact work on GitHub quickly and from anywhere. GitHub Mobile is a safe and secure way to access your GitHub data through a trusted, first-party client application.

With GitHub 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
  • Secure your GitHub.com account with two-factor authentication

For more information about notifications for GitHub Mobile, see "Configuring notifications."

Installing GitHub Mobile

To install GitHub Mobile for Android or iOS, see GitHub Mobile.

Managing accounts

You can be simultaneously signed into mobile with one personal account on GitHub.com and one personal account on GitHub Enterprise Server. For more information about our different products, see "GitHub's products."

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

Prerequisites

You must install GitHub Mobile 1.4 or later on your device to use GitHub Mobile with GitHub Enterprise Server.

To use GitHub Mobile with GitHub Enterprise Server, GitHub.com must be version 3.0 or greater, and your enterprise owner must enable mobile support for your enterprise. For more information, see "Managing GitHub Mobile for your enterprise" in the GitHub Enterprise Server documentation.

During the beta for GitHub Mobile with GitHub Enterprise Server, you must be signed in with a personal account on GitHub.com.

Adding, switching, or signing out of accounts

You can sign into mobile with a personal account on GitHub Enterprise Server. At the bottom of the app, long-press Profile, then tap Add Enterprise Account. Follow the prompts to sign in.

After you sign into mobile with a personal account on GitHub Enterprise Server, you can switch between the account and your account on GitHub.com. At the bottom of the app, long-press Profile, then tap the account you want to switch to.

If you no longer need to access data for your personal account on GitHub Enterprise Server from GitHub Mobile, you can sign out of the account. At the bottom of the app, long-press Profile, swipe left on the account to sign out of, then tap Sign out.

Supported languages for GitHub Mobile

GitHub Mobile is available in the following languages.

  • English
  • Japanese
  • Brazilian Portuguese
  • Simplified Chinese
  • Spanish

If you configure the language on your device to a supported language, GitHub Mobile will default to the language. You can change the language for GitHub Mobile in GitHub Mobile's Settings menu.

GitHub Mobile automatically enables Universal Links for iOS. When you tap any GitHub link, the destination URL will open in GitHub Mobile instead of Safari. For more information, see Universal Links on the Apple Developer site.

To disable Universal Links, long-press any GitHub link, then tap Open. Every time you tap a GitHub link in the future, the destination URL will open in Safari instead of GitHub Mobile.

To re-enable Universal Links, long-press any GitHub link, then tap Open in GitHub.
