It may have taken a while, but Amazon has finally delivered on its promise to bring a Cloud Player app for the Mac faithful. Ever since the offline music management suite debuted for the PC in May, the small cross section of Amazon MP3 hoarders and OS X users have been impatiently waiting for
Bezos and co. to fill their promise. Just like its Windows-based brethren, this version can watch for newly ripped CDs or purchases made through iTunes and add them to your Amazon library. AutoRip CDs you've purchased will also automatically show up in you digital music collection. You can download the app now at amazon.com/getcloudplayer.
Amazon Cloud Player for Mac features include:
One-place for all your music: Play your Amazon and iTunes music all from one place, even when offline.
A music library that is always up-to-date: Cloud Player automatically
detects and adds new music to your library even if you bought it from
iTunes or ripped a CD. The app does all the work for you.
An integrated MP3 Store: You can shop from the Amazon MP3 catalog of
more than 25 million songs and discover new music with personalized
recommendations, all without having to leave the app.
AutoRip: Buy an AutoRip CD or vinyl record from Amazon and a free MP3
version of the album will be added to your Cloud Player for Mac library.
Built for speed: Forget bloated players with extra features you don't
need or use. Cloud Player for Mac is lean, mean and made for your music.
It'll get you from launch to play in seconds.
Music management made simple: Download your MP3 purchases automatically
or with one click. Export your music to other music players. Create and
manage playlists using simple drag-and-drop.
Instant search & play: Find music easily and quickly. Type anywhere
to search for an artist, album or song and play directly from the search
Rich artist content: See artist photos, bios, tweets, and gorgeous, large album art.
Anywhere access: Music purchased using Amazon Cloud Player for Mac is
securely backed up in the cloud for free and made instantly available on
any Kindle Fire, Android phone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch,
Samsung TV, Roku, Sonos, PC or web browser.
"Amazon Cloud Player offers customers the easiest way to enjoy their
music across all their devices," said Steve Boom, Vice President of
Digital Music for Amazon. "Our customers have told us they love our PC
desktop app, and we are excited to bring the same great experience to
our Mac customers."
