- You can choose between a couple of languages which are all used regularly. RealBasic is one (not supported by XCode) , AppleScript is an easy to learn and quite powerful scripting language from Apple, Java another one which is platform independent (more or less) and finally, the native Coca OS X language, Objective-C / Cocoa which is used for most applications written for Apple OS X.

If by average mac programs you mean Safari, Word, Mail, Address Book, iTunes, etc. then chances are very good that they are written primarily in Objective-C and calling Cocoa API or primarily in C++ and calling Carbon API.
If by average mac program you mean what Joe (or Josephine) Little Guy writes, then all kinds of languages are used.
