Default OBD-II and Carly

Hi Guys newbie on here...
Trying to diagnose and solve my own problems.
I recently bought a ELM 327 adapter and have been using it with several different Apps over the last month or so with no problem. Over the weekend I bit the bullet and paid the kings ransom for the Carly App.
I can not connect it to the adapter, I have tried it on an iPhone 6 and an iPhone 4 to no avail.
I disconneced the battery in the car twice, reloaded the app on both phones two or three times and rebooted after each time on both the phones. Bluetooth off radio off phone off... ignition off, ignition on, engine on, engine off.......😬
I can not connect, I have spent about 5 hours so far trying to sort this out as I am on my bike now.

Are you serious, robing B******s
Probably another 60, plus the original 50 plus 5 to register a battery...
BMW wanted 90 to fit and register the battery and I would have got a latte and a nice cream cake in the very pleasant waiting area.
Are you sure, I have to buy one?
What Apps can I use without paying a fortune. Or can I connect with my Mac book Air?

You can get yellow easydiag adapter for around $60 and the software... i can get the bmw only full software and coding. For $30 you sont pay for anything extra.
