BibDesk is used to MANAGE bibliography databases. TeXshop has a built-in ``plugin'' that uses BibDesk to insert citations in a source file while TeXworks doesn't have that feature.

There are other, cross platform applications that manage bibliogrphy databases. One that seems to have a following is JabRef, a Java based application. You can get JabRef at <http://jabref.sourceforge.net>.

I assume you switched to TeXworks and are looking for a different bibliography manager because you need to be cross platform. If that isn't true I see no need to switch either from TeXShop or BibDesk. 

Good Luck,
