Github Desktop

Simple GUI tool for git

Github Desktop is a GUI app that can do the basic git actions like committing and branching, as well as providing a good visual overview of the state of your project. It's not restricted to Github-hosted projects, and it doesn't prevent you also using the git command (you can jump between the two).

If you want a more comprehensive GUI tool for git, try SourceTree.
