I second PhpStorm. Our entire team uses it, with it's debugger. IMO there is nothing else that comes close for working with WordPress. Things like Sublime are pretty, but without a debugger I find them far less useful.
I also use Navicat for MySQL; again, I haven't found a more powerful tool for working with MySQL even though I don't love their user interface.
I don't use any of the *AMPP, I instead use the standard install of Apache from Mac OS X because I prefer the standard install into of having files located in non-standard places. That almost means I've directly installed MySQL.
And as I'm on Mac the rest are Mac specific
- Then there is Transit for FTP but I also have Forklift which I'm considering switching to.
- VirtualHostX for managing Apache virtual config and hosts files, similar to a *AMPP control panel.
- HTTPScoop for debugging HTTP issues, but considering switching to Charles.
That's about it. Hope it helps.
