Con Limited features in the free version
Free version limited to 5 projects, 3 reference lists and 2 areas.

Con No recur upon completion option
If you have a daily recurring task, it will recur every day regardless if it's been completed the prior day.
Con Beta interface is confusing for first-timers
The interface is very opinionated (this is a good thing). But it is not obvious how to map user's own GTD variant onto the one the author has in mind. Maybe after it is in production, there will be better on-boarding.
