I’ve installed 10.10.3, and, as Herb said, font smoothing is greatly improved now with both TeXShop and Skim, and these two applications display nearly identical results. I think that letters might look slightly thicker than they did pre-Yosemite, but there is no longer any annoying fuzziness or raggedness. Preview also looks better.
Adobe Reader, with its proprietary font smoothing algorithms, still gives the crispest results, almost eliminating the motivation for retina screens, but Reader is buggy and not TeX friendly at all, and probably never will be.
