Amazon made its Cloud Player app available to the iPad and iPad mini today.
Version 2.0 of Amazon’s music-streaming app hit the App Store on Wednesday, and the update notably included—aside from optimization—an updated look and a new setting to manage cache size.
Amazon also released a debacle-of-an-update for its eBook-viewing Kindle iOS app yesterday that intended to fix bugs and the registration process but instead deleted entire digital book libraries, login credentials, account data, and saved settings. Check out a few of the reviews on iTunes:
The online retailer now warns users with the following “do not install” notice in the Kindle app’s change log: “Note: There is a known issue with this update. If you are an existing Kindle for iOS user, we recommend you do not install this update at this time.”
