This app was automatically installed on users' iPhones that recently upgraded to iOS 8.2, which even made us write an opinion post about the possibility of deleting native iOS apps. But, oddly enough, the beta version of iOS 8.3 did not have it until today.

The new beta version of OS X Yosemite 10.10.3, also released today, brought an interesting novelty.

OS X “Look Up” feature

Clicking with the direct button on top of a certain word and choosing the option "Search" (or simply clicking on the word with three fingers on the trackpad), the "Look Up" appears. In the current version, basically what we have are definitions of the words themselves (either in the dictionary or on Wikipedia).

OS X 10.10.3 Look Up

In OS X 10.10.3, however, we will have the option of seeing several things related to that word (such as apps available on the Mac App Store, content suggestions on the iTunes Store, nearby locations and more) obviously everything can be turned off in System Preferences , in case the user did not want to have the feature enabled.
