Delight your users with simplified virtual application access

Citrix Receiver is the easy-to-use client software that provides users with universal access to virtual apps, desktops and data from any device, including smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs. Working with your XenApp installation, Receiver empowers users with the freedom to work from anywhere.

Receiver is the go-to app for users on the go, or in the office to get access to Windows, Web, SaaS, mobile apps, and user data through integrated, secure file share support.

See Features

Easy to install and use
Receiver is available from popular app stores and is so easy to install that users can do it themselves. Users simply enter their corporate email address after installation to automatically configure Citrix Receiver. Once complete, users simply login and choose their apps for instant access.

Optimised for each device
Receiver is designed to leverage the unique native features of devices. Whether leveraging multi-touch, GPS or camera of a tablet, or recognizing local storage or peripherals on a PC, each Receiver is built to get the most from each device rather than a one size fits all approach.

Persistent access to apps and desktops
Citrix StoreFront not only keeps track of what users have subscribed to, but it also maintains connections with running apps so that users may move from device to device and immediately get back to the same state—and continue right where they left off.

Enhanced user experience with HDX

XenApp delivers a superior high-definition user experience on any device, over any network. With Citrix HDXTM, the experience rivals a local PC, even when using multimedia, real-time voice and video collaboration, USB peripherals and 3D graphics.

Windows apps become mobile device optimised to support touch gestures and other native device features. Integrated WAN optimization capabilities boost network efficiency and performance even over challenging, high- latency networks.

See Features

Optimised for mobile networks and devices
Citrix is no stranger to conquering difficult network conditions. Citrix HDX is optimised to cope with the variability and packet loss of mobile networks and to support the decompression of graphics and multimedia with hardware acceleration on tablets and smartphones.

Dynamic protocol technology for the best end-user experience
Citrix HDX technology intelligently analyses the capabilities of the servers, networks, and endpoints to determine the optimal method for support. In some cases, video may be passed through directly to the endpoint for maximum server density. In other cases, voice and webcam data may be processed locally and then direct-connected to another client, bypassing the additional latency of the virtual session.

Maintain highest quality of service over any network
HDX technology enables desktop and network administrators to create fine-grained prioritisation over network traffic to get the most from available network resources and maintain the highest service levels. Users may expect excellent performance over mobile broadband or remote office networks spanning across continents.
