Once the app gets downloaded, you might have some confusion for the navigation process. To make it easier check out the tutorial video and a document which is given by the developer in the local files, then the usage and the navigation process would be fine. After that click on the server list and add the needed server then try to fill out the account credentials for the particular server, it automatically gets connected to the player. There is a download option, which allows you to transfer/share/play the server files to your local file.
