Pretty good

It's the best of the github apps out there, but there are some missing things I'd love to see:

EDIT: looks like github just started providing all of these Issue-related features in their API as of yesterday. So, it was technically impossible for the author to integrate those things until now. I look forwards to label, milestone, assignment, etc., support in the next version of this app! :)

- ability to assign issues
- ability to label issues
- ability to set milestone on issues
- ability to create/manage labels and milestones

These may be API limitations of github, or they may be implementation shortcomings of the app. The only real difference to me workflow-wise is that I treat issue tracking via this app as a scratch pad for issues that I'll later more fully edit in a browser. Kind of like drafting a review in the Yelp app, for later completion.
