... and get a heck of a DEAL on FREE MUSIC STORAGE!
Well it appears that yet once again a third party app is beating Apple to the punch. While iCloud has been available for quite some time you’ve had to physically download a song to your device to be able to listen to it. I had hoped to just stream my 18 GB of iTunes music to my various iDevices so that I wouldn’t have to use valuable hard drive space to listen to a variety of my tunes. I certainly didn’t want to have to get into downloading and deleting music on a regular basis to free up space for more apps so I, like a lot of you, have not signed up for Match or used my iPad or iPhone to listen to much of my collection.
However now Amazon has given us a way to actually stream our iTunes music directly to our iDevices and it’s an app called Amazon Cloud Player! Coming a full year after the Android app but well worth the wait!
While there is not a dedicated iPad app it can certainly be used on one. Why they didn’t take the time to do that in the year of development is a head-scratcher but we’ll watch for one in the future. In the meantime the iPhone and iPod Touch app works fine for playing your music directly from the cloud.
Amazon Cloud Player lets you stream or download music stored in your Amazon Cloud to your Apple devices. Don’t let that throw you, you can upload your music collection from iTunes or your other folders to your Amazon cloud! You can also play music already saved on your device and create your own playlists.
Amazon Cloud Player app lets you view your music by album, artist, song, genre, or playlist. If you prefer you can quickly download any song from your Amazon cloud account directly to your iDevice. You can play, pause, skip forward, and skip back. You can scrub forward or backward, and shuffle or loop through your music, all from your iDevice.
Amazon Cloud Player Features:
- Stream your music from the cloud
- Download locally to enjoy your music offline – no wifi or mobile network needed
- Create and edit playlists
- Play music in the background, or controlled via lockscreen
- Use Bluetooth to stream your music in your house or car
How much is all this going to cost you? Well the app and the first 5 GB is FREE! If you need more storage space it is available at a reasonable price. FAR more reasonable than what Apple is currently charging.
