The ‘not really endorsed by the labels but its ok because the Cloud is really just a hard drive partition that you own’ Cloud Drive service by Amazon is now working on iOS devices according to a report by TechCrunch/iFans today.
If you visit Amazon’s Cloud Player through the Safari web browser on an iOS device, you’ll see that it does in fact now work. You’ll first hit a warning page telling you that your browser is not supported, but just ignore that. Click into the music in your drive and it will begin playing. It works flawlessly — even to the point where if you get a Push Notification or incoming call, the music will be paused.
Amazon will probably announce the new compatibility at some point soon.
That’s all well and good but you know Apple is going to have a similar service, perhaps even endorsed by the record labels, ready by September at the very latest. Still, if you are already an Amazon music purchaser, this puts your Cloud collection on your iOS device.
