Send the pictures on your Android device to the cloud with Amazon's new app
Android users can send their pictures to the cloud thanks to the Amazon Cloud Drive Photos app now available in the Google Play Store. Already a feature on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, the app allows you to upload the first 5GB of pictures for free and you can add more storage room at the rate of $10 a year for 20GB of additional space.

The process is as easy as can be. After installing the app, whenever you want to send a photograph to the cloud, a simple long-press on the photo will give you the option to "Upload to Cloud Drive" and once that is completed, the picture can be accessed from any web browser or Android device. And your snapshots can be shared with the world thanks to your social networks like Twitter, Facebook or Google+, or use email to distribute your pictures.

While Amazon's Cloud Drive Photo app lacks the automatic update feature found on Dropbox, the online retailer appears to have done a good job with an offering that is easy to use and most importantly, gives you what you need. The app is available for free from the Google Play Store and from the Amazon Appstore for Android and includes an option to display your photos in a horizontal mosaic or vertical grid. Your pictures are optimized for the screen size of the Android device you are using.
