I am an Apple fanboy and I have always been impressed with their products. They're technology is so tightly integrated into my daily life that I could consider it to be one of the greatest services I have purchased.
Recently I had a great experience signing up with a promotion for UberCab. I was thoroughly impressed with the simplicity and elegance of their app interface. They really focus on removing barriers for ordering a cab, making it all to easy to sign up, invite friends, and start spending your money. The customer experience is great because it is completely transparent. You can see all of the taxi locations live on a map, you are given the name of your driver before he arrives, and the charges are broken down plainly so you know exactly how the final fare was calculated.
Off the top of my head, GMail is my most frequented service. Like the rest of the world, I am constantly checking my email and it really helps to be able to access it on all of my devices at any time.
