Amazon Cloud Player lands on iPhone

Amazon Cloud Player lands on iPhone
The Amazon Cloud Player is an easy way to play music stored in your Amazon Cloud Drive from a native application for both the iPhone and iPod touch. Amazon has launched the application today, and it’s avaiable free on Apple’s App Store.

Interestingly enough, the new Amazon Cloud Player also looks for music on your phone, so you could use it not only for music in the cloud but also as a replacement for the native music application on your iOS device.

One big drawback for the current version is that it doesn’t allow users to buy and download music directly from the app. It’s not hard to guess why that feature wasn’t implemented, though - Apple would have probably required Amazon a 30% cut for the downloads and that’s hardly in the etailer’s interests.

On the positive side of things, you have plenty of storage on the Amazon cloud. If you buy one of Amazon’s storage plans you also get unlimited space for MP3 and AAC files. Not bad, right? Check out our detailed comparison of existing mobile music services below.
