    Hi, I have 3 developers and we need to get some source control up and running asap, was wondering if there was a preference around here? I was looking at github, which seems reasonable at $12/month, but wanted to double check for some other options. Thanks!

    Another, more expensive option is Versions:

    http://versionsapp.com/

    However, if you use git, there are plenty of free git clients out there.

    Versions is just the client, you still need a host for the repository.

    Anyway, I just started using Github for some personal projects a month or so ago and I like it so far. They also have a native Mac client app that works pretty well (better than Xcode, IMO). Xcode 4 works fine when dealing with the local repository, but I have had some issues connecting to the remote with it.

    Github is worth any penny but there is nothing stopping you setting up a remote git repository of your own.

    FWIW I use Beanstalk http://beanstalkapp.com just because I use SVN, but they also do git. Not sure how their pricing compares to github.

    I would recommend using a hosted service over rolling your own though, especially if the three devs are not colocated.

    I figured that would have been self explanatory. ;)
