In the beginning, I want to tell you that Amazon Cloud Drive offers users the possibility to store photos, videos, or any other digital data by using any other computer with an internet connection. If you are familiar with online clouds for storage, then, I am sure that you know what I mean. If you use your Amazon cloud to store music, you also know that you are able to stream your albums to iPhone or iPod Touch. The good news is the fact that now the online retailer has announced a new update concerning the Cloud Player on iPad.
The new update promises to offer new settings in what concerns the iPhone and iPad. Users will be able to manage caches more easily and many other improvements and changes will be available. This new Cloud Player on iPad update allows you to sort your personal music library and to arrange it by artists, albums, songs, genres and playlists. In the same time, if you enjoy listening to music when you travel by train or bus, you will be able to download any song you want in order to listen in an offline mode.
Since I already mentioned the cache settings, let me tell you a little bit more. For example, the new update will include toggles, which are meant to make your Cloud Player experience much easier. This means that you will be able to disable or enable Wi-Fi or cellular data, cache size or even auto-adding of MP3 purchases by pressing a single button. As an addition, the Cloud player on Amazon will support the AutoRip program. In case you do not know, AutoRip deals with adding eligible songs to your playlists, and it does this thing for free. This is a great thing especially if you avoid spending so much money on buying various songs or videos.
If you are considering in purchasing an Amazon account in order to store your favorite songs and videos in the Cloud Player, let me tell you that you can have a 5GB free storage. For some of you, this is more than enough. However, the free limit means no more than 250 songs to store. On the other hand, an annual premium account costs $25 and it has a 250,000 songs limits. Balance your options and choose the alternative that suits you best.
The good thing with the Amazon Cloud storage is the fact that you can access your playlist from any Windows PC, Mac, Android or iOS devices. Things are pretty simple when you know what you are dealing with. If you already have an iTunes cloud storage, you can import your music collection in the Amazon Cloud Player anytime you want. Now, with Cloud Player on iPad, you will have Cloud integration within all your iDevices. For those of you who are interested in this matter, Amazon Cloud Player version 2.0 is available in App Store and it is free of charge.
