I'd be happy to help one on one with getting you setup but first please read through this thread.
FORScan App - Page 8 - Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum
Starts at around post 78 and then 82 and on. At post 82, I show step by step screen shots on how to get everything going. Frankly most of the thread is helpful but 78 and on is where I start going step by step with screen shots.
If you can't get it figured out after that, then please let me know.
To the person talking about iOS, the app is available for apple/mac/iphone as well. It is slightly different but for the most part you can follow along my posts using Android to figure it out.
A couple notes.. if you are using your cell phone instead of a tablet and using a wifi adapter, your cell phone will not receive data (emails, picture mail etc) that requires a data connection because that data connection is now on a wifi network.
You can use a bluetooth adapter however I can't help with the initial connection because I've never done it via bluetooth.
If you are going to use a tablet, I'd recommend the wifi adapter. Here is an adapter from Amazon that I use.
I've left mine plugged in for 7 days without an issue but keep in mind that it will continue to use battery power because it stays live even with the ignition off.
Any other questions, let me know.
