    "A really simple, easy to use, but deceptively powerful Git clients. I have searched for other Git clients in the past but they have been really difficult to learn how to use and just overloaded with features. SourceTree is not only simple and has a pleasing interface, but it can also do many complex things once you dig in the options menu to customize it for your specific need. Best of all? It's free, I can't ask for much more than that."
