Some very use full applications of mac must need
Adium: best im client ever build is for mac it is better than pidgin.
it support multiple im’s. Also there are lot of ready made scripts for multiple jobs (mostly for quotes from movie or celebrity).
Adobe acrobat reader: you have preview but still you will need it some time because preview has it’s own limitation . It make the portable document format not so portable. So when you open a document which is made from windows using words/power point you will not able to see exactly same as it is with preview.
Some fonts figures will not be displayed. It has really got on my nerves then i found that preview is best but i don’t know why they have done this to preview. Why a portable claimed document is not portable why i need adobe reader while i have best reader preview which is so light weight so fast so easy to handle.
Gimp or adobe photoshop:even if you are not photo fan you will need it sometime.
app cleaner: i don’t know why mac has so bad way of deleting files . when you delete some application many of its preferences saved profile still remains in multiple location like library etc. You have to search and remove them manually. it is good if you are removing something temporary and you will need it after some time then you wish that your history will remain but this kind of delete is very rare generally we want complete remove of program from computer so mac will not be able to do this so u will need some application App cleaner is best.
Aquaemacs: for emacs guys and for oz compilation.
BBedit best editor. as helper to textedit.
better in some ways than textedit. support many text file formats.
Colloqy: irc client
