On Wednesday, Amazon released their Cloud Player app — a wireless, cloud-based music streaming service for the Apple iPad and iPad mini platforms. Quite simply, subscribers will be able to stream and download music stored in Amazon’s cloud, play their already existing music through the service and manage playlists from both sources.
“We introduced our Cloud Player app for iPhone and iPod touch last summer and it’s been incredibly popular with our customers so we’ve now expanded it to iPad,” said Steve Boom, Vice President of Digital Music for Amazon in a press release. “Our goal is to make Cloud Player the most widely compatible cloud playback solution available, giving our customers the ability to buy their music once and enjoy it everywhere.”
All Amazon-bought music and up to 250 imported songs can be stored on Cloud Player for free and customers can upload up to 250,000 songs for just $24.99 per year.
The Amazon Cloud Player App for iPad and iPad mini is available now for free from the Apple App store.
