Amazon rolls out iOS-optimized MP3 store
Posted 17 January 2013 - 08:31 AM
Was pretty intriqued until i read the part about using amazons cloud player to play the music. If it can't tie in with my iOS music app there is no point what so ever. I have thousands of songs already purchased(itunes,cd's) in my music app. Apple may be a pain the butt sometimes but at least everything is integrated together. This is a fail on amazons part in my opinion.

While Amazon can't push the MP3's directly to your iOS device, it's trivial to transfer them. I buy all my MP3 music from Amazon, download it (one click) from Cloud Player into iTunes on my Mac, and sync it onto my iPhone. I have to keep the master copy of my music collection on my Mac anyway, because I have far more music - about 155GB - than I can fit on any one of my iOS devices.

This new scheme allows me to buy an MP3 from Amazon using my iPhone and listen to it immediately, without having to wait until I can access my desktop. That's the step that was previously missing.
