Hi, I'm fairly new to Mac and I wash wondering what are the best apps out there? I have limited funds to spend on this kind of thing, and so far I've been pretty lucky, only buying one app that didn't really work, but still did what I asked of it(Song Sergreant) after some tweaking. I put down a solid $20 on it and wasn't thrilled. I would like to avoid doing so again in the future. I was wondering what you guys thought the most valuable apps where, and which ones to avoid. Thanks for any help in advance.

*head scratch* Did u really pay 20bucks for that?

There is plenty of high quality freeware and open source software for Mac.
Just don't use the App Store. Use google to find good apps.

I think the only paid apps I regularly use on my Mac are games and Microsoft Office.

Some good open source software:
- Adium is by far the best instant messaging client out there. Wish it was available for Windows.
- VLC is a good video player.
- is a good alternative to paying for Microsoft Office or Apple iWork.
