With Prof. Franconi's plugin, PDF is the preferred view (menu TeX- 
Prefs), not DVI, so even in you latex your file, command view offers  
as default the option to convert to PDF the DVI file. By default, the  
PDF will open in PDFView, but you can configure it, as I did, to open  
PDF files in TeXShop.

But I really would recommend TeXniscope or xdvi (installed by gwTeX  
if you have Apple's X11 installed) as the DVI viewers, because you  
can then use forward/inverse search.
