iOS Git/Subversion Viewer Apps

Browsers/Viewers versus git/svn clients
To be clear, these apps don’t really offer much in terms of editing code or repository push/pull. However, most offer a way to review code or code status & history (and some include syntax highlighting of the viewed code).

My preferences
Code Viewer 2 is my current favorite for viewing code and I’ve used it (via svn) with both Beanstalk and Github. Code Viewer 2 doesn’t currently have direct support for git, but works using svn against either of those hosts and supports syntax highlight for popular code types (eg, HTML, JavaScript, XML and more). That I like alot. However, compared to all the others it is a little more finicky when connecting to a repository. I do like that it supports both iPhone and iPad making good use of the larger screen.

I generally prefer the universal apps (Code Viewer 2, Source Code, Magic Bean) and the iPad app (GitHub Viewer). The GitHub Viewer, Unfuddle app and Beanstalk apps are easiest to setup. The Unfuddle app seems more suited to monitor the repository and tracking /managing issues. I can’t speak to “Magic Bean” as much since I didn’t buy that one, but I do like that it is for both iPhone and iPad.
