SEATTLE — Amazon.com announced that its Amazon Cloud Player app for iPad and the iPad mini is now available in the Apple App Store. The app allows customers to play or download music stored in Cloud Player to their iPad, play music that is already stored on their device, and manage or create playlists.
“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, VP 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.”
Customers using the Amazon Cloud Player app can play their music from the cloud or download and play it offline. With this new app, customers have full access to their Cloud Player music libraries in a rich graphical interface and also can add playlists that are currently on their iPad.
All Amazon purchases and up to 250 imported songs are stored in Cloud Player for free. Customers with large music collections can import up to 250,000 songs for $24.99 per year.
The Amazon Cloud Player App is available for free from the App Store on iPad.
