5 Amiga apps you can't live without!

Some things you can't live without. Here's my top list of Amiga apps/tools. I pretty much use one or all of these every time I boot up the Amiga.

1. Dpaint IV - Rock solid, easy to use and flexible.
2. Octamed v3 - Excellent and versatile tracker, easy to use, difficult to master.
3. DOpus - Always useful all of the time.
4. Deliplayer - The music player of champions, plays almost everything or maybe everything?
5. AMOS PRO - The perfect programming language for newbies and aspiring pro's.

What do others consider can't live without apps?

I knew this would be picked up on. Well, "application" is still a appropriate term for Amiga tools, and app being shorter.. Annoys me to that the term "app" covers everything these days too, ah well.

DOpus5 as WB-Replacement - Would be very difficult to live without.
SongPlayer - Plays my weekly recorded radio broadcasts.
IBrowse - Because no pc here so needed for www stuff.
JanoEditor (sometimes other editors) - Small/fast for scripting and other texts.
DRemind - Appointment reminder.
Protracker/DigiboosterPro - For the fun of tracking.
HippoPlayer - My number one module player. One of the best three.
...

Some more of course but this are already more then five.

Back in the day;

1) Disk Master (it was like DOpus - came free on a coverdisk with Amiga Format)
2) Workbench
3) Final Copy IIB (decent Word Processor that saw me through college )
4) Termite (Terminal program for accessing many a BBS)
5) SysInfo - my favourite program (I hate the word 'app')

LhA archiver was another...
