Amazon Cloud Player for Mac and Windows now available in the UK

More Amazon Cloud Player news today and this time it's good news for Brits, as the Mac and Windows client is now available to download from Amazon UK. The app itself has been around for Mac users for a few weeks, but having downloaded from Amazon U.S. I found the app completely unusable, but with this British version, all is well.

And it's actually a pretty nice application. It comes Retina ready so it looks fantastic on the Retina MacBook Pro, and is capable of reading your iTunes library and playing the music you have stored on your Mac in the Cloud Player app. So if you really detest iTunes, you've got yet another alternative.

The big function of course is access to your Amazon MP3 Store cloud library, and downloading your music to your Mac is a simple drag-and-drop affair. I don't buy music often, but Amazon frequently has great deals on the MP3 Store, and having easy access to that now on Mac is great news.

Grab the UK version at the source link below, and if you're an Amazon music buyer let me know how you find it.

Amazon Cloud Player for Mac and Windows now available in the UK


Even though I do use this app on my phone (on occasion), I don't think I'd make use of this on my iMac. Maybe because I've become so programmed to use iTunes for years and years, but it is nice to know that this is out there now and may be available for the US in the future.
Thank you for the heads-ups Mr. Devine.

I too don't buy music very often (I don't torrent either. I just usually listen to what I have if Spotify or iTunes Radio) but when I do it is almost always from the Amazon MP3 store. Their prices are great and often have amazing sales. Because of this I began using the amazon cloud player app on my iPone. I even uploaded a few gigs of my own music to my cloud drive. I can play it from any device It's pretty nice.

Amazon is just launching all sorts of stuff this week. Wouldn't use this even if I did have a Mac. Wish I had a Mac.

Yup, it seems Amazon is really pushing hard to get these updates/changes out. Wonder what's next?
