Its a nice app. I'm thinking of buying it after some encouraging exchanges with the developer. Exporting BibTeX to BibDesk is a bit clunky (goes via an intermediate text file), but it works. Adding (in the case of Sente) and improving (in the case of BibDesk) AppleScript support could vastly improve the utility of both apps.

BTW is anyone using Bookends and ReferenceMiner ? If so, any gotchas wrt BibTeX ?
