Amazon Optimizes MP3 Downloading For iPhone, iPod TouchBy: Chris Crum - January 17, 2013
Amazon announced today that it has launched the Amazon MP3 store for iPhone and iPod Touch. Users can tap into the company’s 22-million song library with Safari in a better way than what was possible before.
The site is built on HTML5, and lets users make purchases, which apparently was not already an option.
“Since the launch of the Amazon Cloud Player app for iPhone and iPod touch, a top request from customers has been the ability to buy music from Amazon right from their devices. For the first time ever, iOS users have a way do that – now they can access Amazon’s huge catalog of music, features like personalized recommendations, deals like albums for $5, songs for $0.69, and they can buy their music once and use it everywhere,” said Steve Boom, Vice President of Amazon Music.
Purchases are automatically saved to customers’ Cloud Player libraries, and can be downloaded or played from any iPhone, Pod touch, iPad, Kindle Fire, Android phone or tablet, Roku, Sonos home entertainment system, or any web browser.
