You should go for the Mac variant of Scid vs. PC called Scid vs. Mac.
Scid vs. PC is a improved fork of Scid with some new features and a better UI. http://scidvspc.sourceforge.net/
Should be listed here instead

A chess database software for Mac users is most welcomed. This program is open source and works on many platforms (Mac, Linux, Windows). Don't expect it to be a "real" polished Mac software and there are some "buggy" areas. It get fixed really fast though as the developers are very responsive. You'll have to work a bit to understand how to set it and use it. On the positive side, it's extremely fast and powerful, has many useful functions and is a must for any chess enthusiast. A great job indeed and it is free.

Sans Dieu Rien had trouble on 28 Sep 2010
After moving Scid to Applications, it works until I dismount the Scid Volume. Now I get 'Bases directory not found' window crash. Any suggestions on how I can use Scid without having to keep the download Scid Volume mounted?

1.- From the Finder, select the menu item "Go => Go to folder... (Command-Shift-G)", then type '~/.scid' and hit enter.
2.- Move all contents from that folder to the trash.
3.- Open Scid from the Applications folder.
