For what it is worth, I prefer to have specific applications for specific purposes, since these are created and maintained by experts in whatever the application does. Shotgun applications tend to be very strong in one area (usually the one they started with) and weaker in the other areas; in some cases, they only provide enough functionality to get by including that area in promoting their product.
Having specific applications also gives you flexibility in changing or upgrading in each area.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
