AMAZON is looking to lure APPLE customers to buy music on its site with the launch of its MP3 Web store specifically optimized for iPHONES and iPOD TOUCH devices. The store is accessible through APPLE's SAFARI mobile Web browser.
PC MAGAZINE reports, "any music purchased from the store will be automatically saved to a user's AMAZON CLOUD Player library, but will not count against the library's 5GB of free storage limit. Music can be played back using the Cloud Player mobile apps, which are available for the iPHONE, iPOD TOUCH, iPAD, KINDLE FIRE, ANDROID phones and tablets, ROKU devices, SONOS home entertainment systems, or through any Web browser."
"Since the launch of the AMAZON CLOUD PLAYER app for iPHONE and iPOD TOUCH, a top request from customers has been the ability to buy music from AMAZON right from their devices," AMAZON MUSIC VP STEVE BOOM said in a statement. "For the first time ever, iOS users have a way do that -- now they can access AMAZON's huge catalog of music -- and they can buy their music once and use it everywhere."
