I usually am either browsing the internet for knowledge with Safari, making 2D invention models in Keynote, composing music with GarageBand, sorting/shopping for/listening to music in iTunes, typing a document in Word or checking/composing email in Mail. Easy, simplistic and fast.

Sat on an edit suite most of my life staring at the Final Cut Pro interface.

I swear I'm starting to get a timeline and footage bin burned into my retinas. Every time I look at someone I instinctively start to trim footage of them in the Viewer. :rolleyes:

I make it a clean mix of web (FF), IM (Adium), and mail (Mail), with more of those three than iPhoto and iTunes....

But I don't understand how you can make a poll like this and not make pr0n an explicit option... :D

Mail, Safari and iTunes are always open. So's EyeTV.

At the moment, iSquint is probably my busiest app as I'm converting loads of video for my iPod. :)

That was my first thought as well, but the poll is officially asking about applications, not activities, so it's probably covered under browser use and QuickTime. :p

wouldn't the Finder be an application? if so then the Finder would be what I use the most ;) Otherwise... iChat, Safari, Mail, textEdit, iTunes, iPhoto... hard to say but all those are open everyday including the addressbook, photosohp... etc..
