Amazon Cloud Drive Photos, the universal cloud-based photo and video management app offered by the eponymous e-commerce company, has just received a notable update.
The latest update to the app adds support for photo and video metadata. This enables you to view certain under-the-hood details of your files, including file name, date taken, image type, and resolution.
The update also adds the ability to change the names and covers of albums. Just long-press an album to rename it and just swipe left or right on an album to change its cover image. Note that these new functions are initially available on Amazon Cloud Drive Photos for iPhone and iPod touch only.
The new version of Amazon Cloud Drive Photos also includes customization options for the app’s cache.
But perhaps the most notable addition to Amazon Cloud Drive Photos is AirPlay integration, allowing you to stream your photos and videos for big-screen viewing on your Apple TV.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later, Amazon Cloud Drive Photos is available on the App Store for free, with up to 5GB of free cloud storage.
The app was previously updated last May with a new album view, upload progress, month and year markers, and photo sorting.
Photos stored in the cloud made headlines this week following the leaking of images of celebrities, most notably Jennifer Lawrence, in various states of undress. The incident was initially attributed to a hacking attack on iCloud, but Apple denied that its cloud storage service was breached.
