Amazon’s been hard at work over the past year releasing cloud-based apps and services in a desperate effort to keep up with the modern trends in technology and media consumption. The latest addition to the ever-expanding portfolio of apps and services is Cloud Drive Photos, which does exactly what the name suggests it does.
The app essentially allows users to upload, manage, access and view cloud photos on their iPhones. As per the App Store description:
– Store and secure thousands of photos in your Amazon Cloud Drive
– Protect your memories – photos from your iPhone or iPod touch are automatically saved to Cloud Drive whenever the app is running
– Have access to your entire photo collection in the Amazon Cloud, even those that aren’t in your Camera Roll
– View your photo albums in stunning layouts from your iPhone or iPod touch
– Share your Cloud Drive photos on Facebook, Twitter, and through e-mail
Whether we need this as well as the countless other similar apps is yet to be seen. But, for those of you who regularly make use of Amazon’s cloud service, this app should be a no-brainer. As you’d expect, Amazon Cloud Drive Photos is a free download and is compatible with any iPhone or iPod touch running iOS 6.0 or later.
