4Stream User Guide

Does a User Guide describing all the features and operations of the 4Stream App , exIst and where is it?

I haven’t found one. I did get a response here on a post about that app’s features and was told there are other apps: WiiN Home (same UI) and iEAST Play (somewhat different UI). But finding documentation on any failed.

There are a couple of basic guides on YouTube, but I haven’t seen any written guides either.

Going to start this . If you find anything, please paste it into. a reply.
