Amazon brings Cloud Player app to iPad
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 @ 1:13pm

Amazon has released a v2.0 update of Cloud Player for iOS, finally bringing the app to the iPad. The app was initially released for iOS roughly six months ago, but launched without a native iPad interface. Both the iPhone and iPad interfaces have been tweaked to use a new look, and sport a new setting for managing cache size.



The app is mainly intended to stream music bought through Amazon's MP3 store without having to download the content to a device. Users can sort music by artist, album or genre, and create custom playlists. For convenience the app can also play local files, duplicating the functionality of Apple's own Music software.
