If you are using MacPorts you could try KGPG. Rolf Eike Beer is the maintainer 
and is very active and responsive.

I don't know if all the features will work on OS X, but I really like KGPG's 
ability to take text and encrypt and sign plain text from an interface as well 
as decrypt and verify ASCII-armored text.
