Optional Desktop and Mobile Clients

While the web client is the easiest and most common way to access uDesk there are times when the desktop or mobile remote desktop client may offer an improved experience.

App State employees can install the client on their managed devices from either Software Center on Windows or using Self Service on an Apple device.

Users can install the client on personal mobile devices from either the Google Play Store on Android or the App Store on iOS.
