Besides perhaps Twitter, Google Trends are a good way to gauge what’s hot on the web, and now there’s a pint-sized version for iPhone owners.

GTrends for Notification Center is a jailbreak widget that conveniently places a trending stock ticker into Notification Center.

You can even launch any of the top 20 trending topics directly from the widget, and use your own custom search queries.

GTrends is an interesting tool that allows you to easily keep your fingers on the pulse of the web…

I was impressed by the quality of the widget, being that it is completely free for jailbreakers, and the fact that you could venture into the Settings app and create your own custom queries.

Initially I didn’t think I would really use GTrends, but I think it will become a staple in my Notification Center, even though real estate there is becoming scarce.

If you have a jailbroken iOS 5 device, I highly recommend you check out GTrends, as I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you find.

What do you think?
