I noticed in a lot of screenshots of other MacBooks that some people have a variety of different applications on their dock. I'm curious to know what are some "must have" apps for the Mac. I currently use the basic stuff like VLC player, Office, Chrome.

This fantastic app makes me get through my work - It streams music. It's great if you don't have any music on your mac.
