Amazon releases Cloud Player for iOS


Watch out iTunes, because a new kid wants to unseat you from your reins.

A year after the company released their Cloud Player music tool, Amazon has unveiled their latest update on the device, as they bring the Cloud Player app to iOS users.

The Amazon Cloud Player was made available by the company in the Apple App Store yesterday and has garnered tremendous reviews and feedbacks, both from reviewers and analysts alike.

The current version is only for the iPhone, but it is also said to be compatible with the iPad. The iPad version has not yet been released by Amazon.

According to Amazon’s vice president for Digital Music Steve Boom, “By Bringing Cloud Player to iPhone and iPod touch, we now have the most widely compatible cloud playback solution available, giving our customers the ability to buy once and enjoy their music everywhere.”

The Amazon Cloud Player enables users to stream music online and download tracks, so that users can listen to them offline.

Amazon launched the Cloud Player just last March, after Apple gave a sneak peek to their iCloud and iTunes cloud features.

Is Amazon doing the right thing when they decided to battle it out against the iTunes?
