The best SVN app for Mac, hands down. I have projects with thousands of files and no other SVN client is as useful or easy to use as this masterpiece.

Echoing the other users here -- I'm really surprised this app isn't more popular.

Could the owner add svn, Mac OSX and GUI as tags too? I think we should spread this to the Mac world!!

I'm sorry, but I disagree about that. Smartsvn provides a mac installer, and it runs without any emulators on OSX, thus it will not be removed from the site.

This is not a mac app and doesn't belong on osx.iusethis.com. The program uses a java based file manager so there is no drag and drop support. Since smartsvn is not a mac app you have to press the refresh button for the app to recognize changes on the filesystem (files that were created or modified outside of smartsvn).
Other than smartsvn failing in the mac department, I think it is great, just like others say it is. Maybe this app will move to java.iusethis.com when Arne & Marcus get around to it.

bitnix: you should check out ZigVersion if you want to see a good cocoa Mac Subversion app.

by far the best GUI based SVn client on all platforms! Highly recommended!

There must be an enormous income potential for the first company that makes a real* Mac application to handle SVN. It riddles me why there still is no such thing.

Or am I missing something? I'm rather curious (and new to) version control, but I refuse to even touch anything made in Java.

(*real, as in Cocoa made.)

Probably because it doesn't have native OSX interface ;)

Anyway - this is THE best Subversion client available for OSX.
If you are serious about your repository, you should go with it!

This is miles better than SvnX and I even prefer it over tourtoise. I can't understand why this app is not more popular.
