    i am a huge fan of quicksilver, adium, cyberduck, and VLC.

    while this is not an actual app, if you're looking to do some photo/image editing and cannot/do not want to install software, check out photoshop express

    I just thought of another one for the list.

    Switch is an excellent audio converter. You can convert from a large variety of audio formats to something simpler and easier to use. I like to use it lower the bit rate of songs if they are higher than I want (saves hard drive space), convert audio formats for video editing, and to convert iPhone ringtones to a format I can edit easier.

    Bootcamp a version of windows on you MBP and then you don't have to worry about compatability.
