What do you dislike?
I really think that the free version is of little use, to be used in project management, since you can only do one, having to migrate to a paid version, in order to obtain more functions and more capacity to carry out new projects. This application, although it is very easy to use, requires some time to learn, so if the user does not correctly adopt the application may have problems.
