Not quite so simple...

You must have MacTeX-2008 (or later) and some preferences in TeXShop  
2.26 (or later) have to be changed: in TeXShop->Preferences->Engine  
you basically need to change the pdfTeX and TeX+dvips+distiller  
options to

pdfTeX->Tex: pdftex --shell-escape --synctex=1
pdfTeX->Latex: pdflatex --shell-escape --synctex=1
TeX+dvips+distiller->Tex: simpdftex etex --extratexopts "-synctex=1"
TeX+dvips+distiller->Latex: simpdftex latex --extratexopts "-synctex=1"

which tells the engine to produce a jobname.synctex.gz file that  
contains all the synchronization information.

Good Luck,
