I am assuming you mean software version control. I have used Git, and it's pretty useful. The reason why I used Git specifically cause it's the most popular one (no special reason). It's awesome to use though. If you are the only one working on a project, then it's not as useful.

However, if you have more then one person working on the same project, it's the way to go. Makes life a million times easier. You can maintain a centralized copy (by creating a repository) that everyone else can refer to, and any changes that one person makes won't screw everything up for others. It also really helps with finding bugs and whatnot, since you have a record of all changes made to the project, you can pin-point changes that could be causing the problem instead of looking all over the place.

There really is no downside to using it. Worst case scenario, it won't help with solving any issues. But I doubt that would happen, and having a record of everything is something nice in itself.

I tried out git and have to say it's great. The ability to create lots of development branches independent from the central repository makes me happy like a little kid.
gitk, git tag and .gitignore features are very handy. It's also fast!
Thx, il Diavolo!
Last question: github or bitbucket?

Well, if you're looking for a private repository, you can get one for free on BitBucket (although with limited features). That's the only advantage with BitBucket. If you don't care about your code being out there for the world to see, then go with Github. You could also pay them for a private repository, so yeah..

SVN is very widely used. Its simple , easy to use , maintain and to understand.

It gives all flexibility of creating a branch , merging it , taking back up you name it.

I've been using GIT for a while now. I have to say, great tool and super fast transfer rates ! cheers
One can modify the template for the mobile version by the way. I created 3 password protected USB sticks with GIT and full eclipse on them.
