Amazon cloud player debuts for iOS

John Moe Jun 13, 2012

Sometimes music fans can get into intense rivalries over whose knowledge of bands and records can be the deepest and most esoteric. There’s a lot of hipster brain power in these throw downs. Maybe it’s time to use all those brain cells to keep track of HOW you can listen to music nowadays. Amazon has now introduced its cloud player for Apple’s iOS enabled mobile devices. You can access your 5gb of music stored freely (or more if you paid for more) from your iPhone and listen to your library as you walk around. Good for you. It only syncs up with your library as it stands, meaning you can’t buy music on the go, as you can with iTunes.

Personally, my Amazon library is just a synced up version of the first part of my iTunes library that I loaded to see how it works. So now I can finally walk around town listening to Abba’s “Dancing Queen” on my iPhone. TECHNOLOGY!
