Bsatards violate the UK's distance selling laws. I bought an app called "Delete contacts", due to the phones inability to do so itself. It didn't work for one iota. Just displayed an input field which when clicked did nothing at all. I clicked on the item and reported the problem, deleting the app and requesting a refund. In the UK, as I understand it, anything sold over the internet can be refunded within two weeks. The complaint just went into a black hole. They need to be investigated by consumer standards. Their terms and conditions say no refunds, which should be automatic disqualification to sell in the UK.
