After launching the app:
Enter your nickname/call etc. into the name field, followed by your location.
Select your audio playback device from the popup menu. You can use the slider to the right of it to adjust the volume.
There is also a popup menu to select de-emphasis, as well as a (currently non functional) mute checkbox.
On the second line of fields, enter in the URL and port number of the desired KiwiSDR, you can also select one from the popup menu.
Click the Connect button. After a few seconds you should be connected and hearing audio. If not, check the status text just above the waterfall at the bottom of the window, perhaps the KiwiSDR is full?
Use the popup menu to select the mode, text fields to select the frequency and IF filter range.
There is a bar graph display of the received signal strength with the estimated dBm value to the right.
AGC (automatic gain control) can be enabled and adjusted via the two checkboxes and four sliders.
Squelch can be set along with the waterfall offset and gain, adjust as needed for the best display.

You'll need to enable networking in each of those apps as well, by enabling use of the SDRuno Plugin in each app. See the instructions for each app to learn how to do this.
There's probably still lots of bugs and features that need to be tweaked or added. It's a work in progress :)
