Editor's Pick: 10 Solutions that Impressed Us {And Are Sure to Impress You}

Posted on 11.28.2013

There aren't many Web services that really impress the editors of Website Magazine. We're privy to many also-ran's, many second-fiddles, copycats and the like. Rarely, are we fortunate enough to find truly innovative digital offerings, solutions and services. We're actually lucky in that Website Magazine sits at the crossroads of interactive excellence and get to see much, if not all of the good (as well as the bad and the very virtually ugly, too).

There are the standouts, of course; innovative solutions that are not just unique but very well received by their audience. Below are a few of the solutions that managed to capture my attention this past year, and the following are some of our absolute favorites.
