The Webdam mobile app extends the most essential functions of Webdam and Workstream to your phone or tablet. Admins and contributors can easily upload, download and distribute assets from wherever you are. It’s perfect for keeping projects moving while on-the-go.
Note: The Webdam app does not currently support brand portals, but this functionality is coming soon. Brand portal users should continue to use the desktop or mobile website as their primary point of access.
The app is available for the following devices:
- iPhone 5s and later, iOS 10 and up
- Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) or later
You can download the mobile app for free from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store (coming soon).
