A client program can be a hardware or software or any system that a client is using to access to use to do certain tasks. In the case of bitcoin, the system will automatically download blocks and catch up with unrecognized transactions and the coins will be received when your client receives it in real time. You only need to use ‘wallet’ when you want to spend bitcoins.
