New app allows customers to stream or download music stored in their cloud player to their iPhone or iPod touch. has announced the release of the new Amazon Cloud Player App for the iPhone and iPod touch. With the Amazon Cloud Player App you can play or download music from your Amazon Cloud Drive music collection wherever and whenever you want. Create and edit playlists, play music in the background, or use Bluetooth to stream your music in your home or car.

“Customers tell us that they want access to all of their music, wherever they are, and on all of the devices they use,” said Steve Boom, Vice President of Digital Music for Amazon, in a press release.  “By bringing Cloud Player to iPhone and iPod touch, we now have the most widely compatible cloud playback solution available, giving our customers the ability to buy once and enjoy their music everywhere.”

Amazon customers with a Cloud Drive music collection can use the Amazon Cloud Player App to stream, download, and manage their music collection in the cloud, eliminating the need to download files before playing them.

Now much like Google Play, Amazon gives all users a certain amount of storage space at no cost. Google Play gives users 20,000 songs to begin with, and Amazon gives users 5GB. Amazon notes in the same press release that for a limited time, all those who purchase any storage plan will receive unlimited space for .MP3 and .AAC music files at no additional cost.

The Amazon Cloud Player App is available for free download in Apple iTunes.

Stay tuned.
