    Wunderlist and Evernote are fantastic. Skitch is pretty great.

    +1 on Skitch and Evernote, together at last.

    MplayerX
    Sketchbook
    Opera
    Alfred
    AudioNoteLite
    Cloud
    GeekTool
    MiroVideoConverter
    TextWrangler

    But you'll find much, much more online at a site like MacUpDate.

    BEST ONE is called pianopub! http://dev.kunugiken.com/Pianopub/
    its also in the appstore. The nice thing about it is it can use your media buttons to control it (next track, pause, play), has all your stations you can (un)like songs, you can bookmark songs, add new stations. the only thing you can't do... or i haven't figured out is adding variety to a station.

    some more pluses. is no commercials.. and you can skip an unlimited number of songs!! and of course the app is free!! :cool:

    Skitch is a cool "paint" (and much more) program that used to cost $19.99, but is free since Evernote bought it.

    It's not in the app store but QuickSilver bests Alfred and Launchbar in my opinion.

    These are probably all great apps. Please tell/describe a little about them.
    Cuts down on time used.

    Mindnode is another good one. They have both free and pay versions. Great program for outlining fresh thoughts or new project kickoffs.

    Mindnode is sooooooo amazing!
    And for a great time-waster, TapColors is a fun little game that you can have easy, free fun with while you're waiting for files to transfer or a video to process or a file to download or something. :)
