Gladinet maps Amazon Cloud Drive to your Windows desktop

Amazon's recently-introduced Cloud Drive is a great place to store your files online. It offers 5 gigs of totally free space, and U.S. users also get access to the handy Cloud Player app (for Web and Android!) which streams music you upload to your Cloud Drive. The service could be a little easier to use, however. Until Amazon releases a desktop client, Windows users might want to take...

Add playback hotkeys to Amazon Cloud Player with a Chrome extension

Sure, Amazon's Cloud Player works -- as long as you're in the U.S. or willing to do some tinkering -- but it's fairly simplistic at the moment. There are plenty of features missing which we'd like to see added -- but since Cloud Player is a Web app we don't have to wait for Amazon! Google Chrome users, for example, can add playback hotkeys with an extension called keyMazony. Once...

Amazon Cloud Player review: functional, not mind blowing, and still US-only

It's hard to believe: our world-spanning network, our Internet, which is the cornerstone of free speech and free society -- which, on a good day, is capable of causing populist revolutions -- is still crippled by banal geolocation restrictions. We are, of course, talking about Amazon's two latest offerings, both of which are only available in the United States. Last week it was the excellent...

Amazon Cloud Player streams music from your free Cloud Drive to Android and the desktop

Amazon has just launched its free Amazon Cloud Player for both Android and the Web, plus an accompanying digital locker service, Amazon Cloud Drive. Amazon has beaten both Apple and Google to the punch with a digital locker music streaming service for Amazon.com customers, and it can be yours for free, right now. The Amazon Cloud Player allows you to stream music stored on your free Amazon...

Amazon Appstore for Android Test Drive hands on: surprisingly cool, but still US-only

When Amazon Appstore for Android launched last week, one of its primary features -- Test Drive -- was disabled just a few minutes after it opened. With no try-before-you-buy, no refund process, and 1-Click purchasing ready to strike at any moment, this caused some problems. Anyway, don't despair: Test Drive is now enabled. Before you get your hopes up, Test Drive doesn't work with every app....

Amazon Appstore for Android hands-on review: Android Market is in trouble

Earlier today Amazon released its long-awaited Appstore for Android. Fundamentally it's very similar to Google's first-party Android Market or the third-party AppBrain, but it has a few Amazonian differences that could set it apart from the competition very quickly. First and foremost, Amazon is promising to give away one paid app for free every day. Today it's Angry Birds Rio, and it only...

Amazon Appstore for Android launches with 'Test Drive' trials and recommendations

The Amazon Appstore for Android, Amazon's Android Market place competitor, is now live for Android owners living in the US. Accessible in both the browser via Amazon.com/appstore, or on-device via a downloadable app, the Amazon Appstore hopes to bring a better store experience to the Android platform, and beat the Android Market at its own game. The initial launch brings with it 3,800 apps...

Moki.tv is a killer companion to online video services

With all the streaming, on-demand video sites available to choose from nowadays, a site like freshly-launched Moki.tv can be a very handy resource to file in your bookmarks. Moki bills itself as the ultimate guide to online entertainment, and it's certainly one of the best of its breed. A number of popular video services are supported, including iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Comcast's...

Amazon Appstore accessible by hidden URL, Android app pricing and exclusive titles revealed

A cunning fellow over on Androidnews.de decided to add /apps to amazon.com and was rewarded with a list of 48 Android apps and their pricing! You need to be logged out for the Android apps to emerge, otherwise your personalized recommendations will appear instead. You can't click through to any product listings, but that's not really the interesting bit: the prices are visible, and they're...

Angry Birds Rio for Android to be an Amazon Appstore exclusive

If you're an Angry Birds fan and own and Android device, here's some news you'll want to file away for safe keeping. The upcoming sequel Angry Birds Rio won't be available from the Android Market. Rather, you'll have to download it from the Amazon Appstore. That's a pretty major win for Amazon, considering how successful the Angry Birds franchise has been. If you're looking for a sure-fire...

Amazon Prime members now get streaming movies, TV shows

Amazon Prime -- which used to just get you discounted one-day or free two day shipping across the U.S. on all your Amazon purchases -- now includes a pretty nice bonus feature. That's it above: free, on-demand streaming of thousands of TV shows and movies. Sure, the selection is pretty small compared to what services like Hulu and Netflix offer, but this is a pretty nice freebies to toss...

IMDb Android app update brings major redesign, trailers, global showtimes, and more

The official IMDb app for Android just got a big update, and it does not disappoint. Along with a complete design-overhaul, the app has been stuffed full of IMDb goodness to the point that it's now more enjoyable to use than the actual website itself. The redesign is very sleek. They've basically taken the original palette and layout, expanded it all, and turned up the sexy. As nice as it...

Kindle for iOS updated with real page numbers and new progress indicators

Amazon's Kindle eBook app for iOS devices just got an update to version 2.6, which adds some minor (but useful!) features. You can now view the actual page numbers of thousands of Kindle books -- which correspond to the physical editions -- making it easier to cite passages or jump from screen to paper without losing your place. And speaking of finding your place in a book, Kindle for iOS 2.6...

Amazon app for Windows Phone 7 lets you swipe through millions of products

Amazon has released an official application for Windows Phone 7. The app takes advantage of the design language and fonts used throughout WP7 to bring the Amazon experience you're used to straight to your smartphone. Using the app, you can quickly find any one of the millions of products available in more than 40 product categories. When you're considering a certain product, you can swipe left...

Kindle, Skype, and Time magazine subscriptions coming to webOS devices

Besides the previously-unseen webOS 3.0 and introducing new hardware in the form of a tablet and two smartphones, HP had some other gems under its sleeves at today's Think Beyond event. Taking center stage at the event was HP's new TouchPad, its first webOS tablet. There was more on display than hardware of course. We now know the TouchPad will get an official Amazon Kindle application, that,...
