Teaser sites for mobile and desktop apps come by the dozen these days. Still, very few of these sites manage to capture both the app's functionality, as well as the ease of use, as elegantly as CloudApp does. How anyone could possibly visit this site and not want to install CloudApp is beyond me.

The recent redesign of Time.com is a modern text before photos approach to news design. The articles get the attention they deserve. The structure is highly influenced by sites like Quartz or The Next Web, as the articles are easily sortable by popular or latest. Automatic transition to the next story is another concept it successfully borrows from Quartz.

Andrew Wilkinson's MetaLab recently redesigned their website. As with everything else they produce, it's flawlessly executed. All the details are there, and it's interesting to see them sharing a bit more about their process than before. I love the use of colors, and the project showcases + the demo reel is a very nice touch.

There's no reason to be surprised by the fact that every time Squarespace launches something new, it's beautiful. This is the case with their new Apps presentation page, too. It's absolutely stunning to behold, and at the same time it does a great job of showing their range of apps. The only thing I'm sure a few of you will dislike, is the way the page animates on scrolling.

Our good friends at Kodebyraaet have a shiny new website. It's blue, beautiful and bold, and definitely deserves a closer look. The use of Avenir is a perfect touch. It's also great to see that they are providing some well deserved space for their own products as well.

This one here is probably the best fansite for any sports team I have ever seen. The color palette is great, the statistcs are beautifully presented, the typography is flawless, even the 404 page is created with lots of love and attention to details. Make sure to check out the team squad illustrations while you're at it.

I'm pretty much drooling over Envoy, the new venture from Vítor Lourenço and Larry Gadea. Envoy was built out of the frustration of seeing archaic visitor registration systems in Silicon Valley. I think there is a massive potential for such a product, especially when it looks so promising. Not to mention the beautiful landing page.

BKLYNR is an independent issue based online publication whose mission is to publish great journalism about Brooklyn. The people behind the site aren’t backed by VC money or a big corporation, so they decided to turn to a subscription based model to make this possible. It's very well done, even more so than The Magazine, especially if you live in Brooklyn.

The front page of Playground's new website features some pretty sweet animations when you scroll down. But when you start to dive deeper into the site, that's when you really get a feel of how talented this team is. Lots of great little details, the case studies are killer, and the snappiness (is that a word?) really makes for an enjoyable experience.
