Waste of money

The app didn’t work at all. I am using iPhone 7 Plus with the newest version of iOS 11. I have been trying so hard to make it work including restated my phone, deleted, reinstalled it and it still doesn’t work. It is very expensive too. Now I cannot get my money back. Feel like this is a scam. Super frustrated and annoyed.
