Any opinions on Wave59 (a pattern matching software)

I am currently looking for a software which automatically creates patterns and checks for their profitability. Now I was informed of a software called Wave59 (https://www.wave59.com/) and that this piece can at least search for already defined patterns. Well, they don't offer a free trial - you have...
