SearchTrends Shows What’s Hot In The Search World On The iPhone




Have you ever wondered what people are searching for right now on Google, Yahoo! or Bing? If you've ever been to Google's headquarters in Mountain View, then you'll know what I'm talking about, but what if you want to see all the trends on the go? SearchTrends for the iPhone is here to help. SearchTrends displays real-time search trends for Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and Twitter, and lets you search on these terms from right within the app.

SearchTrends is a great new way to stay up-to-date on popular search terms, news and events. Instead of relying on news sources, you're keying off of what people around the world are talking about in real time.

Have you ever wondered what people are searching for right now on Google, Yahoo! or Bing? If you’ve ever been to Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, then you’ll know what I’m talking about, but what if you want to see all the trends on the go? SearchTrends for the iPhone is here to help. SearchTrends displays real-time search trends for Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and Twitter, and lets you search on these terms from right within the app.


SearchTrends is a great new way to stay up-to-date on popular search terms, news and events. Instead of relying on news sources, you’re keying off of what people around the world are talking about in real time.


I will say though, the UI isn’t the best. It basically only shows text, which can get boring at times. But when you’re looking at what Search Trends is showing, the data is very interesting as well as how each search engine has completely different results. (Screenshot below)


Currently, on Google the top search term is “787 first flight video” while Yahoo! is showing “Elin Nordegren” and Bing with “Tara Reid.”


In the future, I’d like to see graphs and different types of analytical data in the app comparing the three search engines side-by-side, just so you don’t have to go through each panel to see what’s going on.


SearchTrends is available for free on the App Store today. [iTunes link]
