      "Indispensable for me."

      July 16, 2011   |   By doneck--2008

      Version: TeXShop 2.43

      Pros

      Easy to use and superior to other LaTeX compilers that I have used. The .tex and .pdf files are both on the screen side by side. And it is free!

      Cons

      None: the latest update removed my sole previous quibble related to using the Find/Replace command..

      Summary

      It is a gem.

      "Better than Word, rocks for math."

      April 19, 2010   |   By epidermus

      Version: TeXShop 2.33

      Pros

      pdf to tex editor command-click feature is a lifesaver, no unnecessary bells and whistles

      Cons

      Sometimes the pdf to tex editor command-click feature doesn't work or points to the the wrong document region entirely.

      Summary

      TexShop hides all the the byzantine tex distributions and packages and lets me typeset easily and effectively.

      "Best TeX Editor I have ever used"

      March 23, 2006   |   By cwasmer

      Version: TexShop 2.0.9b

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I just finished my diploma thesis using TeXShop and everything just worked perfectly. The only slight problem might be the quite excessive RAM usage (200-400MB here). This was no problem for me but might be for other users.
      Nice Work - Thank You very much!!!

      "Incredible tool for copy editors!"

      January 22, 2006   |   By EmuBite

      Version: TexShop 2.0.8

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      I just started using TexShop today, and I must say that I'm impressed. I'm tasked with copy editing for a large scientific journal. Many of the articles we publish are submitted in TeX format. Until today, we had to submit all rewrites to our typesetter to manually edit. However, TexShop has made it a breeze for me to edit our papers in-house. We're saving thousands of dollars in the process!

      Bravo, TexShop developers. Thank you for a great tool!

      "Must try softwar"

      January 13, 2006   |   By Myron Gochnauer

      Version: TexShop 2.0.8

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      TexShop is a nearly perfect, no-nonsense editor and TeX/LaTeX front end. If you are a beginner with LaTeX, go to the TexShop website and follow the instructions for getting started. TexShop itself is an intuitive text editor that is reasonably well-developed and extremely stable. It is not as adaptable or powerful as WinEdt in the Windows environment, or Emacs in any environment, but it does what it says it will do with a minimum of fuss... and it does it "right out of the box". The program is slowly becoming more sophisticated, but since it is free there is no commerical pressure to quickly add features in order generate upgrade fees. As a result, the program seems to be closer to being bug free than any commercial editors or wordprocessors I've used. Would that all software were as thoughtfully designed and carefully developed!

      "The reason to upgrade to Tiger..."

      May 09, 2005   |   By dada1958

      Version: TexShop 2.0.1

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      For me were the Quicksilver and TeXShop updates. Both required Tiger. So I went for it.
      QS Labrador isn't that stable yet, though I have pretty much confidence in the developer.
      TeXShop 2 is the ultimate Mac OS X Tiger application imho. It's working perfectly well with Spotlight and after having read an article on daringfireball.net, Dictionary is functioning as well.

      This application is a "must have" for TeX-LaTeX users. The new synchronization engine works pretty well. A thousand of thanks !

      "best latex front-end"

      September 15, 2004   |   By Dana Nau

      Version: TexShop 1.35e

      Summary

      This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
      This is the best latex front-end I've had on any platform, and it was invaluable to me when I was writing my book. I'm grateful to Richard Koch for doing it.

      Does anyone know the reason for the succession of 1.35[abcde] releases over the last few weeks?
