Early this week Amazon announced it's Cloud Drive. A cloud storage service that includes the ability to stream to any number of devices from Cloud Drive's cloud storage. Some features include:
- Web player for streaming MP3s, and an Android player too
- 5 GB of free storage
- 20 GB of free storage for 1 year when you buy a MP3 album from Amazon
- Amazon purchased MP3s do not count against your storage total
- Graduated rates for additional storage, all fairly reasonable
One complaint I have is that uploading of MP3s isn't the easiest. You have to manually create an artist folder (say Aerosmith), and then a folder for each album under Aerosmith (Toys In The Attic for instance). They should allow you to select a folder and then create the folder structure for you. However, one cool feature is that Amazon uses album info, once it recognizes the album, to arrange the tracks in the album order.
It also will convert any WMAs to MP3s IF Amazon sells that album in MP3 format. If not then you are forced to upload in MP3 format since the player appears to be incompatible with WMAs.
Still in its infancy, I am sure everything will get better over time.
