Amazon Cloud Player now works with iOS

There's no app just yet, but how long before Apple fires back with its own solution?

Amazon Cloud Player now works with iOS, after the online retail giant updated the service at the end of last week. The digital locker service lets you stream tracks you’ve stored in the cloud on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch via iOS’s web browser.

You can’t stash tunes to Cloud Player direct from iOS devices, seeing as the service requires Flash for uploading. But you can still use your Mac or PC to shovel tunes into the cloud and then stream them as you go.

At the moment, this update remains US only, as does Amazon Cloud Player. There’s still no word on when we’ll be seeing a UK launch. Doubtless Apple won’t be best pleased about this move, seeing as it is planning its own iTunes digital locker service.

Will this hurry Apple’s plans along? Or will it bide its time to fire back in this nascent battle for cloud supremacy? Let us know what you think on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
