I saw that some said there is no shortcode in the free version. I just used the shortcode and it works perfectly fine on the free version. Great plugin!

The plugin says, there is a shortcode in free version. I spent like 20 minutes in order to find the shorcode. I finally found that it's only available in pro version. Waste of time.
