The app offer ‘Full Customizations’ and not ‘Full Customization’ There are a lot of elements that they don’t let you have access to. On their website, they also cut off all of their screen shots before showing the part that has their logo on everything. They make you pay an extra fee to remove the logo- even though its not shown anywhere on their site. This is a deceptive plugin trying to make money.
