    Welcome

    Here's a bunch of Mac related things to help (not just apps). I've 12 Macs (business and personal), so this list represents a bit of everything.

    Software:
    LaunchBar
    You Control Desktops, You Control
    Little Snitch
    HandBrake
    MacTheRipper
    1Password (also for the iPhone)
    Carbon Copy Cloner
    Things (GTD app)

    Most of the built in apps of course.

    Websites:

    Lokiware: Mail Attachments Iconizer (email attachments software for sending to MS users)

    Good forums for Mac related help:

    macosxhints.com - OS X tips and tricks!

    Mac Rumors: Apple Mac Rumors and News You Care About (also good for news)

    News related:

    dealmac.com: The best deals on iPod, iMac and MacBook. Locate discount Macs, new and refurbished Apple systems. (not a news or forum site, but great for finding deals on Mac products)

    HTH.

    I use iWork for all of my documents and presentations that I do, and I also use numbers for what I need to do. I dont use Office anymore. Handbreak as mentioned above is a biggie! I also use Bento for some database stuff. Aperture is good if you do a lot with photos, Cyber duck for all of my FTP needs and efax to receive faxes. Seashore for a few things it is free and I dont use it much but does what I need (it is like photoshop). I use skype as well which works great when on the road. I also use flip4mac and perian so that I can view all my media in quicktime instead of having a lot of media players.

    Well, my favs are:

    Burn- Simple and good CD/DVD burning software
    Toast Titanium- A bit better burning soft and you can create your own DVDs
    Transmission- Torrent prog
    If I could help you with my answer give me a

    Here are several apps that I must have on my mac
    First and MOST important
    **Quicksilver-This app is an amazingly fast application launcher/tool that can do almost anything with the built in plug in support P.S. I use the HUD Bezel interface. Do a search for this app-it takes a little to get used to to use it effectively. For me it has almost completely replaced Spotlight, even in the default "key-launcher" -Command+Space.

    Secondly I second 1Password it is an amazing tool

    Thirdly I prefer to use the two programs VLC and Fairmount instead of MactheRipper or Handbreak.
    Vlc-Is an all around video player that plays all kinds of formats
    Fairmount allows you to put a DVD in and then just drag the Video_TS folder to your HDD for later viewing.
