Wrong purchase

I Purchase this in error and Apple will not allow a refund. Buyer beware. This app does not work as it states and is poorly designed. I added the free trial only to be schemed into thinking the costly version offered more features.
Shame on Apple for their poor customer service in refunding an app they allow to be sold through their site that scams customers. I will not buy anything else from Apple in the future. Steve Jobs ideal company is dead with him.
