First Crack 1.0

mySleepButton - Shuffle Your Thoughts to Sleep
This app works.

mySleepButton is based on cognitive science, including the Cognitive Shuffle, Serial Diverse Imagining and Super-Somnolent principles of sleep onset proposed by CogSci Apps Corp. co-founder, Dr. Luc P. Beaudoin.

Quiver - The Programmer’s Notebook
There have been times I’ve wished for an app like this. It mixes Markdown and code snippets with tagging and other code organization tools. Overall, I use nvALT for this purpose to great results, but I’ve always wished for a dedicated snippet manager that met most, if not all, of my requirements.
Taco - All your tasks. One screen.
This web app combines over 40 of your everyday todo apps into one screen. Asana, Basecamp, Evernote, Bugzilla, OmniFocus and tons more. Even text files.
Plug
The Hype Machine is one great music discovery tool, and this little app is a great way to access it from a native OS X interface.
