Amazon’s recently launched Cloud Player service, which allows users to stream music from “the cloud” to their computer, now appears to support iOS devices.
Simply navigate over to the Amazon Cloud Player in Safari and, after accepting a warning stating that “your browser is not supported,” the Cloud Player webpage should load. You can then play a song as you would via the desktop browser version of Amazon Cloud Player. Furthermore, if you get a call, the track you’re playing will pause automatically.
Currently, Amazon offers users of the service five gigabytes of online storage for free. You can expand this storage to 20 gigabytes via a subscription, or by purchasing a single album from Amazon.
For a while now, Apple has been expected to launch a similar music service – one that will integrate seamlessly with the iOS, and will possibly debut with a “revamped” version of MobileMe. The important thing to note, is that if Amazon can create Amazon Cloud Player, Apple can develop something similar.
Until such a service launches, Apple fans can play around with Amazon’s free five gigabytes of online storage, and access the Amazon Cloud Player on the go from their iOS devices.
