Amazon today launched a new online web service that allows users to store their music on Amazon's servers and then stream it to their Android handset, Android tablet, or desktop computer. The service offers 5GB of storage for free, but will supply 20GB of online storage for those who purchase any MP3 album from Amazon's digital download store. The Cloud Drive Player for the Android platform is a brand new application that combines a media player, the Amazon MP3 store, and a mobile version of the Cloud Player. It lets users play media stored on the device, purchase tracks from Amazon, or stream their music from the cloud. Cloud Drive supports most file types, including AAC and MP3, and streams the media back at the full bit rate of the original file. It an also be used to store other files, such as photos, videos and documents. It requires that users have an Amazon account. Amazon didn't say if it plans to support other platforms.

still needs work...
good start but needs work...
cant upload whole folder.
cant open file from iphone when going to cloud drive and logging in.
would like to see an automatic backup of a folder
Could see it being great for the music i know i'll always want available. Then I'd just use the SD card for the stuff that I'd be swapping on and off.
Also, nothing you buy from Amazon counts toward the limit and things in their cloud can be redownloaded, so it's like a free back up. Which is nice.
