Google (quietly) Kills its Weather API

Google seems to have gone ahead and killed its Weather API that was being used by plenty of iOS, Android and Web apps in the market today. A lot of these apps are therefore suddenly unable to fetch and display any weather day, which I’m sure would lead to a lot of bad or negative reviews.

One could argue that Google is allowed to do this as it was an undocumented, private API existing only to serve the iGoogle product. However, it really wouldn’t have hurt if they’d just given a heads up a few days earlier.

Apps that are affected include Weather Eye (Android), Weather Neue & Kelvin (iOS) and Sun & Breeze (Web).
