Papers might have a more Mac-like interface in this respect. I'm not  
sure, but IIRC from a very quick look just after it was launched  
Papers has an interface similar to iTunes (and probably to Leopard's  
Finder from the screenshots seen here and there).

That said, from the reports posted on this list BibDesk is more  
powerful and has unsurpassed TeX integration. I can't say more as I'm  
not using either (I'm still managing bibliographical data by hand),  
but I know that when I decide/find time to explore computer  
bibliographical management I'll start with BibDesk.
