Amazon Cloud Player Now Supports iOS Devices

Disappointed Apple iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad owners can now cheer the news that Amazon’s recently unveiled Cloud Player service has just added support for iOS devices. According to Engadget, Cloud Player works “without a hitch” on the iPad and iPhone 3GS. They report there’s “little (if any) lag or time delay” when buffering music and that the web app refreshes data quickly — even multitasking controls work so one can play a game and manage music at the same time. Downside they say: “mobile Safari prohibits you from doing drag-and-drops, which adds a couple extra steps to the process of adding songs to your playlists.” What do think? Can Amazon convince the iTunes faithful to jump ship?
