i couldn't work without it.
BibDesk is by far the best reference manager there is today. No other one, and I know the crowd, some even very intimately, comes even close to BibDesk in terms of power (features) and ease of use. Also support and design principles are excellent. An open source project that shines. I am working with BibDesk since many years and therefore do refute some of the criticism mentioned here, since some, e.g. the alleged editing of several publications at once, do actually not apply and BibDesk offers excellent means to accomplish this. Some have complaint about a feature missing. First, some of these complaints are not accurate. E.g. "edit of multiple entries at once are still missing" is not true. You can edit many records at once. Select them and menu command "Edit -> Find -> Database find and replace" allows to do that. Finally, there is nothing you can't do using AppleScripts, if you are missing a very specific feature, thanks to the excellent design behind BibDesk.
Good, reliable tool that works well in my research workflow. BibDesk, Skim, Texpad for the desktop, and PocketBib, GoodReader, Texpad for iPad. Dropbox for storage.
It's rock solid, it's open source, and it writes most of its stuff into a human-readable, industry standard bibtex. That's almost all I could ask for.
BibDesk works wonderful.
