TD has a lot of choices available, with many optional fields. A common mistake people make starting out is to try to conceptualize what their ideal set-up will be. Another factor is that 3rd party tools do introduce additional complexity. I feel sorry for people who have a windows pc, an iPad and an android phone. I think it would be hard to make sure all the software is interoperable.I've read of many people using Toodledo as a web interface while using another front end. Most of the users are unhappy with it and keep trying other products. Although they mostly return to Toodledo, as their perfect solution doesn't exist, they commonly complain that Toodledo + other are too complicated, so as a first time user that's put me off.
