 From what little I've seen it is a VERY basic editor for learning the  
VERY basics of writing LaTeX code. It has very few functions that I  
would consider essential to helpp me edit and compile any document  
outside of very simple ones. Since TeXShop has lots of stuff for  
beginners but can be used by more advanced users too I'd still  
recommend it to folks that will eventually want to do more than dip  
their toes into the cold water of TeX. But each to his/her own.

Good Luck,
