Throughout the app you can:

  • see your unpaid invoices,
  • access all of your seedboxes (if you own more than one)
  • get your seedbox name, username, host name and current seedbox state. Active, Pending & Suspended,
  • get the Disk space used as of your last app refresh and your plan's total per month limit,
  • see the Traffic used as of your last app refresh and your plan's total per month limit,
  • see what's the next due date for your seedbox,
  • restart your seedbox,
  • refresh your plex libraries to sync your media.

This guide will show how to install and use the mobile app right from your homescreen of your phone or tablet.

*For this guide we used an iPhone 6 device. Procedures are very similar to most of known mobile/tablet devices and browsers. Please adjust steps to match your specific device.

Installation

  1. Open the following URL from your favorite mobile browser:

    https://www.seedboxes.cc/mobile/

  5. In this step you need to go to the API Access page of your Client Area from your desktop computer, in order to enable API Access and get your unique API Key to use it in your mobile app.

  6. Login to your client area. After you log in to your seedbox account, click in the "My Client Area" button.

TIPS:

  1. QR Code decoding success rate depends on your camera capabilities ( resolution, sharpness e.t.c. ). If you get an error when our app decodes your image, make more tries and move your camera farther from your desktop screen. Reload app if needed.
  2. In Windows mobile phones or tablets you might have to take the picture and load it from your Downloads folder.
  3. If none of the above worked for you, you should fill out the API Key manually with your QWERTY keyboard.

Actions & Gestures

Actions

1. Restart Seedbox

Pressing the Restart Seedbox button in the bottom left of your screen will result in a soft reboot of your seedbox.

2. Refresh Plex

Pressing the Refresh Plex button in the bottom right of your screen will refresh all of your plex libraries in order to sync new media in your libraries

Both actions will trigger a message in light blue showing you that your command was successfully sent.

After a few seconds the button of the requested action gets available again. This means that the command was successfully completed and all services should be ready.
