GitHub released its mobile app for iOS and Android earlier this year in March. Since its initial release, the app has been updated a couple of times with new features to help developers get their work done on the go. The previous update, which rolled out in June, brought the ability to render Markdown, image, and PDF files on request, a fix for the emoji rendering issue, and more. Now, the team is rolling out version 1.3 of the app with more new features.
GitHub v1.3 has started rolling out to users via the Google Play Store, and it brings an overhaul for the code review experience. The update includes a new toggle to turn off line wrapping, the ability to change the email associated with a merge, commit description editing, a new multi-select mode to leave comments on multiple lines of code, and more.
