It's quite easy to extend TeXShop's ability with an .engine file.

I quote a howto I had sent to the list earlier:

Copy the following script to a file and name it BibTopic.engine or  
something. This script will automatically call bibdesk correctly.

location=$(dirname "$1")
basefname="${location}/`basename "$1" .tex`"
# process the bibliography
for file in "${location}/${basefname}"?.aux ;
     bibtex "${file}"

Move this file to ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines
Make it executable ("chmod +x BibTopic.engine" in the Terminal)

After hat, you will see an additional entry in your selection of  
engines in TeXShop (unfortunately not in the menu, but in the  
corresponding item in the toolbar).

Mail me directly if you need additional information or search the  
list's archive, the problem has come up several times.
