With all the fanfare surrounding Apple’s iCloud and the recent debut of Google Drive, let’s not forget another player in the “cloud” story is still around and very much active: Amazon. In fact, they’ve just released a brand new desktop app to help users access all their info stored on the company’s cloud servers.
The app is available for both Mac and Windows desktops and could not be easier to use. Simply drag and drop your files onto the desktop icon for instant uploading to the cloud, then have access to them from any of your mobile devices that have a web connection. Of course, you have to actually go to Amazon’s website to do that.
The app is a good first step for Amazon but lacks many of the features found in other offerings from Google and Dropbox. Of course, Apple doesn’t even have an app at all so at least Amazon is ahead of them.
Still, with all of Amazon’s resources I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before they release a revised version fothe app with more features. Plus, they really need to do something about the prices as they seem a bit high.
Keep at it Amazon. Competition is a good thing.
