You can get a quick idea before diving into the full story with Word Cloud in which the GoogleTrends-based algorithm chooses the most interesting and trending words marked in red color to catch your eyes.

The analysis of trending words by Google Trends is also served, including the global interest over time (starting from 2004), regional interest and city interest.

Interesting, informative and … maybe creepy?

The only reason I gave this app 5 stars is this is the first time I feel "big brother is watching you."

Due to the marine nude photos scandal, "nude photos" becomes trending and this app provides you the power to see which countries, even cities, have high interests in it.

I have mixed feelings of being powerful and unsecured.

Nice app but …

I really like this app, it provides update-to-date information in a neat way, but the articles with same topic should be grouped together like Google News does and the word cloud should be helpful for this purpose.

Besides, though the Google Trends helps to expose the geographical interest, the app should provide a quick tutorial to guide users to know how to use it.

Finally, it would be better if we can use the feature of Google Trends without a Google account. But it seems impossible?

Great potential and interesting concept

Among a sea of news app in App Store, this is actually a special one. The Google Trends search is definitely fun to play and the integration of map to show the interests geographically is pretty awesome too.

However, all these fun things doesn't mean it is a useful app. It has potential to grow but you cannot really use it to accomplish something.

Again, very interesting app. I hope more features can be added over time.
