TeXnicle has become my favourite LaTeX file editing and typesetting environment on the Mac, because it is the most Mac-like TeX editor and can be adapted to one's own needs rather easily.
Similar to other TeX editors, one may create inserts and floats, change text styles or use special signs by the selection and insertion of ready-to-use TeX code clips. TeXnicle even gives visual hints, how the result may look like. In contrast to other editors, however, one may add those TeX commands which are not available in the default selection (which is smaller than in other editors), but one is in need for. This works also for your own commands (with the little disadvantage that one does not get a visual aid or one has to include also those parts of the command definition which are usually placed in the preamble).
Most of my LaTeX files are written in German and contain many special characters such as German umlauts. These were all properly shown, when I first opened one of my files in TeXnicle (not so with some other TeX editors available for the Mac).
The pdf viewer is integrated resulting in a less cluttered desktop and allows a live update of the typeset document one is working with. Otherwise TeXnicle has many functions such as the handling of syntax highlighting, multi-file project handling, file and project templates, bookmarks, command completion and many other things one may expect.
Overall a very well designed and stable program which so far did not show any glitches.
