The problem with having so many app choices for common tasks is that the sheer number of apps can be a complete productivity killer. Each choice is accompanied by a few trade-offs and the result, for me at least, is that I end up spending more time deciding which app to use than actually starting the task.
Ironically the solution is to just make a choice about everything. Or you can simplify your choices by sticking with defaults unless there is a really compelling reason to install something else (I think Nathan Jeffery tends to stick with default apps).
App choice anxiety is a real pain in the butt!
