Are some people here familiar with Papers:


I heard about it for the first time today, through its mention at MacNN:


The first paragraph of its presentation rings a bell, as it describes  
exactly the situation I'm in:

> Do you have dozens of PDF files from your favorite scientific  
> articles scattered on your harddrive? Do you also try to  
> desperately organize them by renaming and archiving them in  
> folders? But like the piles of printed articles on your desk, you  
> can't keep up with all the new papers you download, and despite all  
> your efforts it has become impossible to find that one article.

However, from what I had read here I had understood BibDesk offers  
already, for free and in a BibTeX-compatible way, the functionality  
provided by Papers. Is this statement correct (I'm not using Bibdesk  
yet)? Are there users of BibDesk and/or Papers, who could clarify this.
