Before using the plugin in TeXShop open the bibliography file you are  
using in BibDesk. Then try to complete the \cite{} command using fn 
+F5 (or Opt+Esc).

By the way, in OS X 10.4 you can set the function keys as primary so  
you will need to use the fn key if you want to change the screen  
brightness or sound volume. The setting is a checkbox in System  
Preferences->Keyboard & Mouse->Keyboard. Since I rarely change those  
I'd rather have simple function key access.

Good Luck,
