Tower launches GitLab integration on Windows

Windows users can now manage their GitLab accounts right within Tower – give it a try with 20% off.


Tower, the popular Git desktop client for Mac, has now launched integration with GitLab for Windows, making repository management and undoing mistakes a breeze, helping you and your team to work more efficiently. To celebrate, they're offering 20% off your order until February 15th.

This highly anticipated integration has been a popular request from Tower users and is something the Tower team has always wanted to provide themselves, explains Tower founder, Tobias Günther. GitLab VP of Product Job van der Voort says, "I’ve been a fan of Tower for many years on the Mac, so I’m very excited for Tower to bring both their great client-side app and GitLab integration to Windows."

Here are some of the great ways this tight integration can help you:

Undo and Conflict Wizard
