PushCrew
Submitted by: Anand Kansal
The Lowdown:
When linking to create account should open in a new window. Should make the account ID more prominent in the account pages. Its pretty nice to get set up and send out push notifications currently only to crome, safari and mobile. This will get a large percentage of your visitors. I can see this as very useful if you have visitors who are on your site for a while and you see theme there and you want to grab their attention with a simple notification. Use it to create specials and more.
It does have another nice advantage in that you get an email telling you what you have sent out and some stats on the link clicks.

Freemium Plugin
Avartan Slider Lite
Sent in by Alkesh Miyani
The Lowdown:
This is a pretty decent responsive slider creator with a few features the premium version looks to have many more. It has some great controls for individual slides as well as for the slider in general. You can implement via short code or php code. Add text layers to your slide as well as videos. All i all pretty good but the pro version may be better.

Premium Plugin
WP Stagecoach
Sent in by Morgan Kay
The Lowdown:
This is a pretty nice plugin for easily creation of a staging website that is separate and apart from your live site on a staging server. With a few clicks you can create a staging website that duplicates your current live site and copies all essential files, if you opt for the lower plan it only hotlinks the images which may be all you need. Once your stage is live you can make all kinds of changes to it and then update your live. You even get FTP access to the stage for working on core files. This seems to work very nocley and is worth the money if you are doing development and do not have your own servers.

Popup for Interactive Content by OpinionStage
The popup for interactive content plugin let's you add a popup to your site with 1-click. You can then customize the popup, including the popup look & feel, the popup time scheduling and the popup user scheduling. You can create a poll, trivia quiz or personality quit. Throughout the quiz, you can use featured images for each question. The popup does show a small logo of OpinionStage. I would like to buy this as a premium plugin with a more white label function, but it doesn't appear to have a premium version yet. For a popup example, http://blog.opinionstage.com/popup-for-interactive-content-wordpress-plugin/

MailChimp Activity
Once activated, it will show a new dashboard widget containing a bar-graph or line-graph showing day-to-day changes to your MailChimp lists. You can choose to view relative activity (daily subscribes vs. unsubscribes) or a line graph visualizing your total list sizes. I really like this on the dashboard, as it takes away having to login to Mailchimp to check stats. It's also a handy interface to use in a client situation where they can monitor it all in the dashboard. Combine this with a good Google Analytics in the Dashboard plugin, and you've got most of your bases covered.
