Enjoy listening to music in your Amazon Cloud account with the new Amazon Cloud Player app for iOS.
The Cloud Player can access your music from any of your devices and can add any of the music to the Cloud Library. Sign in with your Amazon account and download your music from a device straight to the library.
I used the music on my iPhone to test out Amazon Cloud Player. I had to select the “Device” section on the app to do this. Once my music automatically appeared on the player, it was sorted into playlists and genres such as I had on my iPod. After that I transferred only certain playlists to Cloud on my Amazon account. It’s a very simple process. You sign into Amazon, go to the Cloud Player section, and transfer any music you wish to have in your library. There is no need to connect your iPhone or iPod touch to a computer; everything can be done wirelessly.
This new app can save us so much time now when it comes to keeping our iPod up to date with the newest songs. There is no need to download music one file at a time from one library to another. Once it’s on Cloud, you can add and access your music anywhere at anytime.
Amazon MP3s must be purchased outside of the iPhone app, as companies who house a content store within an application must cut Apple 30 percent of the profits. So purchasing music must be done through the web or on another device.
Amazon customers get 5GB of free storage for music files. There are a large variety of storage plans for those who like the Amazon ecosystem and would like to have access to this content from additional devices or computers.
- Simple and fast
- Convenient for downloading music anywhere, anytime
Off the Mark:
- No music buying from app due to Apple restrictions
