Today Amazon updated its Cloud Player iOS app with full support for the iPad. Amazon’s music streaming and storage service got its own iPhone app last summer, and now the app has been made universal with an interface that’s optimized for the iPad’s larger display.
With Cloud Player on the iPad, Amazon customers can stream music and download tracks to play offline. The app displays larger album artwork while music is playing, and it retains the same look and feel of the iPhone version.
“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. “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.”
Any music you purchase from Amazon is automatically stored in Cloud Player for free. Up to 250 songs can be imported to store online as well. After that, you can import up to 250,000 songs for $25 per year, like iTunes Match. The only difference is that Amazon actually lets you stream music, while Apple still forces you to download it locally.
Amazon Cloud Player for iPhone and iPad is available for free in the App Store.
