Con Bit complicated for everyone
It is a feature oriented app for the people who love its multiple functions, but those that don't may find it complicated to use.
Con Restricted free version
The free version has many restrictions. The full version costs $14.99.
Con Limited free plan
After the free trial you can choose to remain on a free plan, but you’ll be restricted to a max of 5 projects and will have limitations on collaboration.
Con Task dependencies missing
Nozbe is great, but one shortcoming relates to "task dependencies" in projects. You should be able to sequence your tasks so that, when you complete a task, the next one that needs to be done becomes the "priority" task for that project. This is a vital feature that will make the program dramatically more useful. The company claims to be working on this improvement.
