    20GB streaming MP3s, INCLUDING iTunes....it is NOT just Android only.
    (You start with 5 GB, and you can use the below trick to get anothe 15 GB total):

    Amazon.com: Buy an MP3 Album, Upgrade to 20 GB of Cloud Drive Storage for Free

    * Purchase an MP3 album from the Amazon MP3 Store by 11:59 PM PST on December 31, 2011.
    * If you qualify for this offer and either have not signed up for Amazon Cloud Drive or have the 5GB Amazon Cloud Drive plan, you will be automatically eligible for the 20 GB plan for one year from the date of your MP3 album purchase. Unless you set your account to auto-renew to a paid plan, the 20 GB plan will revert to a free plan one year from the date of your MP3 album purchase.
    * If your Amazon Cloud Drive account is already at 20 GB or higher when you qualify for this offer, the offer will be saved to your account as a $20 credit toward any future Amazon Cloud Drive plan fees you may incur at the time your plan renews or at the time you upgrade your plan. If you elect to downgrade your plan to a free plan at the time of renewal, your upgrade offer will be applied towards the 20 GB plan at that time.

    Hold on kiddies, I read that the Amazon service does not work with iOS or Safari. (Not surprising given Apple is a potential competitor) The Amazon cloud storage appears to be usable for any type of file, it is how you get the files off the cloud that matter. As of right now, you could download the files and play them, but streaming the files (music anyway) is limited to a non-Safari web browser interface and an android app for android mobile devices.

    Let's see what the day's new brings. Looks like Amazon beat Apple to the punch on this one.:D

    Not for iTunes....

    Their cloud service requires an Amazon mp3 streaming app (or like someone else said, a non-Safari browser). The service won't work with iTunes.

    Yeah, I might have used this service and might even have bought some music through Amazon if it worked well and was iOS compatible. Oh well.

    Anyone tried this on an IOS device using another browser such as Atomic. Particularly if that browser set to be identified as explorer, firefox, or desktop safari.

    FYI, they just released an update that supports their Cloud player on iOS devices, so now this is actually useful!!

    Everyone realizes that it is only expanded for one year right? After that you either pay them or lose the data stored there.
