Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR

Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.

App Reviews

  • Worst app / totally useless

    By Mirahnda
    The main site doesn’t work on the iPhone. So I figured I would get the app. But all the app does is direct you to the main site, which of course doesn’t work. It’s not really like an app at all. If I wanted to use the main site, I have Safari and I can go there all by myself. The point of an app is to function on mobile devices more easily; not just direct you right back to safari. The only way to do anything on the site is to go to my laptop and login. Can’t do ANYTHING from a mobile device.
  • Needs work

    By Cfore76
    I use it for time keeping for my job and the app isn’t at all intuitive. I select a day other than today to put hours to and it still has today’s date in the field that I have to then change. The time fields don’t have a way to preset them with a schedule I usually work so it’s necessary to change the time worked everyday. In order to put in one day of time you have to scroll up and down through cluttered fields and go back and fourth between multiple screens.
  • Too many glitches

    By Llaveria83
    It is really useful to get access to my school website but for blackboard it is basically useless. I cannot click on the resources. When I scroll down to see them they go away and I cannot click on them. If they fix those issues I would be able to utilize this app much better.
  • Constant reauthentication

    By CarpentrySquirrel
    With the latest release of this app running on iOS 10 on my iPhone 5S, Okta now asks me to reauthenticate via Duo every 5 minutes. It used to let me go hours or even days. I don't want to upgrade iOS because Apple throttled your phone automagically. And I don't want to pay $1,000 for a new phone when this one is perfectly functional. But this is nearly unusable. To say the situation is frustrating is an understatement.
  • Good bug fixes

    By Ducksrfr
    Just installed the latest version, great to see proper iPhone X display support (it’s no longer an odd stretched/scaled version of the iPhone 8 display). The PIN keypad touch targets are finally fixed as well, that’s good to see. Let’s see some feature updates like Touch/Face ID!!
  • Better on the iPad - useful for quick tasks

    By Dr. Quiet
    I've found this to be useful for checking workday, salesforce and a few other platforms while in airports or with limited system access.
  • Continued access difficulties

    By JayJay
    Each app revision comes with lesser functionality... 1- used to have okta verify passcode import automatically from verify app on same device (gone) 2- used to be able to attach items to an email in OWA (Now the ‘working’ animation/wheel spins longer than you’re willing to wait) 3- timekeeping used to allow login (though clearly suboptimal, better than not entering my time until I have better access - gone) ... heck, we used to be able to login to a fingerprint protected okta app with just a 4-digit pin.... gone. This is a great app idea that has been hurt these last few update cycles
  • Yet another pin to remember

    By psilencer
    I just downloaded the app, signed in, and the first thing the app asks me to do is create a pin with no explanation on what it’s for... why would I want to create another pin for me to forget... I thought this app was supposed to make logging in easier than the web interface? Immediately deleted the app. No thanks.
  • So glitchy

    By Catsmt
    This app is so glitchy especially it seems if there’s an update either from Okta or the company I work for. Constantly get errors doesn’t show what it should very unuser friendly. What a shame my company uses this. Same on computer as app
  • Constantly fails on ios

    By Kbwummel
    Worked for one week. Ever since, it has consistently failed to run the apps from my organization and I end up having to use their web browser. I opt not use the mobile app as it is literally useless and is not a functional app by any means.
