Amazon finally brings its Cloud Player app to OS X, giving Mac users an alternative to iTunes. The Amazon Cloud Player combines music stored locally on a user’s computer with their Amazon purchases, which can be streamed from the cloud or downloaded for offline listening.
While Cloud Player doesn’t offer much over iTunes as a music player, Amazon’s ecosystem is what will draw users. Those who purchase music from Amazon’s digital music store will have all their songs available to stream or download immediately. Cloud Player even imports tracks you purchased from iTunes automatically to make the transition simple. If you purchased a physical CD or record from Amazon, you will automatically be given a digital version of the album thanks to the company’s AutoRip feature.
Amazon Cloud Player for Mac requires OS X 10.6 and up, either a 32 or 64 bit processor, and 45MB of disk space.
