    This is not worth $1. Let alone the $18.71 they want. Luckily I did the free trial first, and even that is not worth it. A complete waste of money.

    Don`t bother to download. Greedy company. Said 1 day left after being installed for 5 minutes. You can`t really even check it out, as ad comes up to buy full version every time you try to look at a page. Total waste of my time.

    Seems ok, but I got message within minutes saying I had 1 day left on the trial. Wasted my time, since it was not clearly marked as a trial and no price evident. Sorta ticked me off and left a bad feeling for the developer. The rating is geared for the poorly advertised trial, not content itself since there is no way I can go through the program in one day!
