There are 2 excellent new web applications I came across recently that solve real problems.  They are:

Pintpay is a payment processor that is beautiful, easy to use, and is very inexpensive.  I’ve been looking for something like this for a new service I’ll be launching soon.  Charging a monthly recurring fee was starting to look like a huge project before PintPay came around.  Two thumbs up!

Help Scout:

I absolutely love LightHouse for working in groups.  The idea of using tickets to communicate really jives with my GTD mentality.  So when the makers of Lighthouse released TenderApp (basically a public-facing ticketing system), I was in heaven.  But until we have enough customers that we need to pay for TenderApp, Help Scout has a free option that is simple to set up and quite lovely.

Both of these have simplified my life.  I hope they do the same for you.
