The Weather Channel swept in and blew Yahoo out of iOS 8's Weather app

When iOS 8 rolls around, one of the more subtle changes will come in the Apple-coded Weather app: Yahoo will be out as the source for weather data, replace instead by The Weather Channel. Yahoo's been the data and visuals provider for the Weather app for some time, so what brought the change?

Comparing iPad weather apps at a glance

Earlier in the week I compared the current weather screens of 27 popular iPhone weather apps, and in the spirit of equal time for expansive interfaces, here's the same thing for 18 popular iPad weather apps.

Living Earth for iPad review: The best weather app for the iPad

I'm not going to lie, settling on one single app to label as "the best" weather app for iPad wasn't easy. On one hand I had a collection of feature-packed apps that provided every little detail about the weather, including videos and interactive forecasts. On the other hand, I had a group of apps that didn't necessarily have as many features, but were beautiful, easy to use, and fit the needs of most people. Reminding myself that I was looking for best, not most feature-filled, it was easy for me to give Living Earth for iPad the title.

Lock Screen Weather app adds weather to the iPhone Lock screen

Lock Screen Weather is a clever app that allows you to display live weather on the iPhone Lock screen without requiring a jailbreak.

The way it works is by playing a silent track through the iPod app, then using the album art for the track to display the weather based locations you set within the app. Because of the dynamic abilities of how album art is displayed in the iPod app, and subsequently shown whenever you lock your iPhone or iPod touch, this app essentially tricks the iPhone to display Lock screen weather without breaking any of Apple's strict developer guidelines.
