    I'm writing some papers for academia and after doing one through Pages '09 I realized how painful it can be to get the formatting just right. The outlets I'm publishing at provide a LaTeX template that I could use, but editing plain LaTeX in TextEdit or something like it is a painful ordeal.

    Are there any LaTeX editors for the Mac with a native, usable, user-friendly (to the extent that I'm used to on a Mac vs a PC) interface?

    FWIW, the LaTeX template I want to use it at http://jcgt.org/write.html?reload=1

    I used LyX for my dissertation.

    It is pretty easy to use and works on top of whichever LaTeX distribution you choose.

    TeXShop has always been very well regarded. TeXworks seems decent too. Personally I've moved onto more universal editors like Sublime Text.

    I really like using latexian with the LaTeX suite. Gives you a nice live preview of what you are doing.

    I've only used TexStudio, but it seems to work pretty well for me!
