In TeXShop, it does indeed shows in the Services meny … but dimmed. As 
it is in … Safari.
But the application I downloaded is called Aiksaurus Cocoa and what 
shows dimmed is English Aik(The)saurus.
Both the homepage and the Source Forge are pretty terse.

I just thought that, once "hooked", some command in TeXShop would write 
a word selected in TeXShop source into the Aiksaurus window rather me 
writing it. So it is nothing crucial. Far from it.

Grateful regards
