I'm beginning to worry this can't be done. Is it possible for a standalone application to store a private address from which to spend without that being available to anyone that reverse-engineers the code?

I wouldn't keep a private key with the application.

You could certainly have an application that creates Bitcoin transactions, that another service could then sign.

If it's in memory it can be obtained.
