GitHub is making its way to the iOS and Android platforms

Microsoft-owned software development platform GitHub will soon be available to mobile users for iOS and Android platforms alike. The announcement was made at the company's annual three-day event, GitHub Universe 2019, which is currently ongoing.

GitHub for mobile will automatically adjust to any screen size and is compatible with dark mode settings on all devices.

Shanku Niyogi, GitHub's recently appointed senior vice president of product, described the idea behind screen-size optimization for the GitHub app for tablet users:

"When you start to look at the tablet experience, that then extends out because you now got more space. You can look at the code, you can navigate some of that, we support some of the key same keyboard shortcuts that github.com does to be able to look at a larger amount of content and a larger amount of code. So, the idea is the experience scales with the mobile devices you have, and but it’s also designed for the things you’re likely to do when you’re not using your computer.”

While the mobile application is already available in beta for iOS, Android users will have to wait until an unspecified point in time to test out GitHub for mobile. All we know so far is that the Android beta is 'coming soon'. In the meantime, interested users can sign up for the Android beta waitlist to be notified about any future updates.
