Amazon offers a Cloud Player experience without the browser barrier

Web giant Amazon has announced the release of a dedicated Cloud Player app for PC users. This is a definite step up in the music experience that they were providing before as now users can access their music when offline as well.

While users could access their Cloud Player accounts via a browser before, the dedicated PC app allows you to access your playlist without the need for the Internet. The PC application allows you to store your purchased music on your PC. Another added advantage is the ability to scan your hard disk for music that has not been uploaded to their storage locker yet.


In the cloud..

You can now access your Sound cloud without the Internet



The limitation of music that can be uploaded without purchasing it from Amazon stands at 250 songs though. However, now users have the option of uploading an unlimited number of Amazon purchased tracks, as well as the above mentioned non purchased tracks into their Sound Cloud storage locker and wirelessly playing it on any Amazon player for free. While this may not leave you with many options, it is an improvement from what Amazon was providing earlier.

This announcement came hot on the heels of the company announcing that their Sound Cloud could now be synced to play music via Apple products like the iPod Touch, iPhone or iPad in selected Ford cars models.

Amazon launched its Cloud Player two years ago as a music player that could play your music anywhere you wanted. In the subsequent years that thought has been slow in becoming reality. With the dedicated PC app, Amazon has taken a step towards achieving their claim.
