Is there any official site, mobile application or software for looking up latex (and its packages) commands and their syntax in it as Matlab Software done it in it's help. Brief description with some example for its syntax seems be very necessary for this excellent editor. By the way there is glossary of LaTeX on Wikibooks but it isn't much user-friendly as I expected.

    If you want some basic commands, try texdoc latex2e; for a list of symbols, try texdoc symbols-a4; for a list of TeX commands, try texdoc texbytopic (also, but different: tug.org/utilities/plain/cseq.html). For specific packages, you need to look at the documentation of that package. – jon Jun 29 '16 at 4:58

    The Wikibooks entry you refer to is only for the glossaries package, not for LaTeX as a whole. – Peter Wilson Jun 29 '16 at 18:01

Some editors have this functionality. For example with texstudio one can simply mouse hover a command/environment and for many (most?) one will get a brief description:
