The year 2014 is almost at an end and new year is right around the corner now.

It is interesting to see how the Global and the US lists are strikingly similar to each other. Also note how different the search pattern for India is.

TechCrunch has noted that this is also the first year where an Apple product has not made it to the top 10 list, not at least in the US or the Global list. The iPad in 2010, iPhone 5 and iPad 3 in 2011, iPad 3 in 2012, and iPhone 5S in 2013. No apple for 2014, sorry :)

People generally have been focusing on depressing topics such as the death of Robin Williams, the Malaysia Airlines tragedy, the Ebola outbreak, the rise of the ISIS terrorist group, the Ferguson unrest, and the Ukraine problem. That makes it 6 out of 10.

Flappy bird was of course the highlight of the year when it comes to mobile games. The widely hated, yet widely played game mushroomed before the author took the game down. It's replicas are still getting millions of downloads per month.

These lists are based on trending searches in the past 12 months, and are not based on total frequency.
