I was able to do what I needed with the free version. I contacted them right after processing payement for premium and they refused to refund even though it was immediately after. The online community is always helpful, this company is not. I work in customer service management for multiple IT co's. If someone requests a refund immediately after purchase, reputable companies will assist. Not happy with their tough luck response.

Once you get used to how it works, you'll be able to do a lot of things! I just needed it to export a LOT of categories from one site to another one. This plugin made the task MUCH simpler. TIP: on step 4 of Import wizard, you can (and have to) DRAG & DROP the variable names on the right into the appropriate fields on the left dialog. It took me a while to figure it out. I found the templating system confusing, buggy and thus pretty much useless (I ended up importing Categories into Posts...). I would recommend testing imports with a smaller set of items! Possible improvement: ability to export/import menus and wiget areas.
