If this is what texify does you can download LatexmkTeXShop.zip from  
<http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2/> and follow the easy installation  
directions. Then you place the line

%!TEX TS-program = pdflatexmk

(for running pdflatex --- similar commands for latex+dvips+ps2pdf13  
or xelatex) and the Typeset command (Cmd-T) will automatically run  
(via the engine files supplied) latexmk on the source file. Latexmk  
is a perl script that will automatically run (pdf/xe)latex, then  
bibtex and or makeindex if necessary and finally (pdf/xe)latex the  
proper number of times to resolve all (cross-)references.

Good Luck,
