Even "programming" contingencies are done via point-and-click. It has been a while since I asked this question, but I've tried out PsychoPy as some people suggested in the comments, and so far I'm really digging it. If you want you can use only the GUI to create your experiment, but if you're doing more advanced stuff you can export the code and start digging around in it. It has been a while since the question was asked, but I am going to give my answer anyway.
PsychoPy is really good and easy to use and is what I typically recommend people to use. However, I recently found the Python library Expyriment and it seems promising. Although you will have to write your own code there are available methods for creating the window, presenting a fixation cross, and so on. A plus with this library is that you can also code experiments for Android devices and, of course, Windows, Linux, and OS-X.
As of version 4 Inquisit has Mac support. See this announcement. You can run experiments locally or over the web. It is a commercial product. Inquisit is used by behavioral scientists throughout the world for creating and administering numerous cognitive, social, and neuropsychological measures.
Now in use in over research institutions throughout the world. The Mac support was only introduced in early so I imagine there will be a polishing process. I've used it many times.

This is because I find OOP unnecessary for the simple stuff I tend to do and find it takes a little more effort both coding and planning to do fully OOP experiments.

Possibly just a personal quirk though. It is related to the fact that the method extends a decision process with essential, in current research experiments, psychological aspects of decision making.
Table of Contents
In the chapter the occurrence of the problem in practical applications of the ANP, related to economic experiments and forecast model, is examined. The chapter deals with the issue of preference aggregation from pairwise comparison matrices in the AHP. The technique is widely used in economic research as a tool supporting decision making in finance, management and experimental economics. In this chapter, with the use of simulations, fourteen aggregation procedures with different degrees of expert evaluation inaccuracies and for different sizes of decision problems are examined.
Among the researched procedures there were: classical ones, based on column sums and a eigenvector of a matrix; ones based on the method of least squares using error minimization; as well as the method of a data envelope. In most of experimental research, we generally need to solve a problem of classification, regression or time-series forecasting.
On the other hand, artificial neural networks are universal and highly flexible function approximators. Neural networks are primarily used in the fields of cognitive science and engineering. In recent years, the use of neural network applications in economics has dramatically increased. Today, neural networks are a basic tool in experimental economics. However, the large number of parameters that must be selected to develop a neural network model has meant that the design process still involves much effort. The objective of this chapter is to provide a practical introductory guide in the design of a neural network for solving problems in experimental economics.
The approach is explained, and the chapter includes a discussion of trade-offs in parameter selection, as well as some common pitfalls. An attempt to add a psychological background into an analysis of human behaviour is made in the chapter. Behaviours are viewed in the context of human propensities.
Problems connected with dependencies between personality types and chosen propensities are discussed. The main focus is put on differences in propensities with respect to personality orientations. Some methodological issues related to propensities are presented. In an empirical example the differences in propensity to risk, consume, invest and save with respect to personality features are analysed.

The results obtained in the research are compared with the observations of Barber and Odean. The presented chapter contributes to the experimental current of research on privacy. The objective set by the author was to verify a hypothesis concerning the valuation of privacy by respondents and whether it has value for them that can be expressed in financial terms. The research used an experiment conducted at one of Polish shopping centres. According to the research, privacy has its price for people and they are willing to sell it, but the appraisal of this good is non-linear you can even see the relationship that higher pay for the data causes a greater caution of respondents.
Online auctions combine the conventional auction model with information technology.
The Effect of Computer-based Tests on Nursing Students’ Test Anxiety: a Quasi-experimental Study
The chapter is in the context of experimental economy. The research project was conducted by natural experiment through Allegro. The online transactions were conducted in compliance with all statutory requirements of Allegro by a professional company focused on online business.
The basic transaction was the sale of mobile phone pouch during buy-it-now online auction. Observations were carried out for 30 days. The whole project covers transactions in total. There are two main groups of recommendations from the project. The other group of recommendations allows forecasting the future of online auction market in Poland as more and more online auction buyers gain experience and passes from inexperienced to experienced group. Research related to the online systems and behaviours of their users could be implemented with the participation of online systems and measurement oriented on the final recipient.
In addition to the traditional survey based methods, measuring systems associated with eye tracking that allow precise determination of visual paths and areas of websites or ads that absorb the attention of the recipient are used.

In this chapter, the main assumptions of the use of eye tracking in experimental economics and the results of the experiment are presented. Designed experiment was aimed to the detection of relation between the characteristics of interactive advertising units, its location within the site and the level of interest of the recipient based on absorption and attention. The character and form of the commercial message have a decisive influence on its reception by potential clients.
