at display settings page, you could choose format for you collection field,This module provide a new option"Views field-collection items"
then at format summary area, you will see "Embed View: field_collection_view, default", Yes ,this module using views_embed_view function,That mean you need config the name and display id of the view you want to use.
Now if you visit a page of host entity, you could only see three fields," Field collection Item id", "Edit", "Delete",At the bottom there is a "Add" link.This is not a bug, that because i do not know which fields that added to collection field.
