Amazon Cloud Player 2.0 for iPad
Amazon Cloud Player gives you online (and offline) access to your Amazon music collection.

It doesn’t matter how much capacity you throw at a device, developers and owners find a way to fill it to bursting point. Take the 16GB retina-display iPad for example – you can easily fill it up with apps alone, leaving little or no room for your video or music. That’s where cloud-based music comes to the fore – you store your music collection in the cloud, then stream or download it on demand, freeing up much-needed space on your mobile.

If you’re a fan of Amazon, and are using its recently renamed Music service, then this is the app you need to access your music collection on your mobile. Amazon Music automatically includes all MP3 purchases (and CDs with auto-rip enabled) from Amazon, plus you can upload music from your computer too: up to 250 songs for free, or 250,000 songs if you pay $24.99 a year for the privilege.

A new feature added to version 3 is exclusive to US Amazon Prime members – the ability to stream (and download) over a million songs to your Android device.

The app is split into two main sections: Cloud, which is where you access your online purchases and cloud-based music, and Device, where you can play music already stored on your mobile. In either event your collection is organised in the usual way, with options for album, artist, track, genres and playlists. Select a track to start playing it, remember it’s being streamed over the internet, so consider using the Settings to only allow streaming over Wi-Fi if you want to avoid data roaming charges.

Note, however, that the app creates a cache on your device to store streamed tracks on, thus helping to reduce your bandwidth and giving you offline access to those tracks you’ve recently streamed. You can also manually select tracks and albums for downloading to your device for the same purpose.

Amazon Music also gives you quick and easy access to the Amazon Music store, allowing you grow your collection further – once purchased, your tracks are instantly available in the app.

Everything works as it should, the display is pleasant and simple to navigate, so if you’re an Amazon Music user, you’ll find this app is an essential addition to your collection.

Version 3.0 has the following changes:
- Amazon Cloud Player is now Amazon Music. New look and new easy-to-remember name.
- US Amazon Prime members now have free, unlimited access to over a million songs and hundreds of custom built playlists for ad-free streaming. Explore the Prime Music catalog, add music for free to your library, or download to your mobile device for offline listening.
- New easier navigation and redesigned look.
- Manage your library, now you can delete music from your library.
- Bug fixes

Verdict:

If you store your music collection using Amazon’s online service, then this app is an essential tool, and might help to free up much-needed space on your mobile.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
