Amazon Cloud Player reaches UK, Germany and France


Tuesday 18th of September 2012 / androidauthority.com
As we’ve discussed when comparing the 7-inch Amazon Kindle Fire HD against the Google Nexus 7, as well as when we talked about how well Amazon and Google are prepared for a potential Microsoft Windows 8 commercial success in the tablet world, Amazon and Google are actively chasing each other in various markets and fields. It’s quite an interesting dispute to watch, really!Today it is Amazon’s turn to one up on the search giant, as it has released its Cloud Player in the UK, Germany and France, countries that are included in the Amazon Kindle Fire European rollout. If we’re to put this in context with the recent Amazon Appstore release in a slew of European countries, the Cloud Player is likely to shortly arrive in Spain and Italy as well. The ultimate purpose is likely to be a global rollout, but it looks like Amazon is playing its cards in just a few countries at a time.So where does Google sit in all this? Well, given that the Amazon Cloud Player and Google Music are roughly the same thing: cloud-based lockers for your music, Amazon is one step ahead of Goog

Nexus 7 and Amazon Cloud Player


Tuesday 16th of April 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
I am unable to play any tracks from Amazon Cloud Player.All the songs show up, clicking on 'play' brings up the album art and at bottom right it states 'loading', but no progress shows and neither of the play buttons do anything.The loudspeaker icon opens and that's it.Even a one minute track is dead.I have the Amazon mp3 and cloud app installed. All works on my PC OK.Thanks for any suggestions.

Hands on with the UK Amazon Kindle Fire


Friday 26th of October 2012 / androidcentral.com
It's been a long time coming, but this week finally sees the release of the Amazon Kindle Fire in the UK and selected markets across Europe. With prices starting at just £129 for the cheapest version, there is huge potential for Amazon to capture the casual tablet buyer market. 7-inch tablets are great for consuming media, no doubts. The Google Nexus 7 could be seen as a direct competitor, but there are differences, and there are areas where Amazon has a slight leg up on Google. And, it's all to do with content.In the US, Nexus 7 owners can watch movies and TV shows, read magazines and books, and buy music. In the UK, we're limited to just the movies and books offerings, which to this day still disappoints. Yes, there's nasty licensing issues to deal with, but Amazon has done just that. We've had the MP3 store for a few years now, along with the Kindle offerings. In recent weeks though, Amazon has opened up the Appstore, Cloud Drive and Cloud Player, and has revealed how their LOVEFiLM rental service will be baked into the Kindle Fire to provide the video c

Any advice for weening off of apple?


Monday 20th of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
I pretty much decided that my next phone probaly will not be a iPhone. I'm about ready to go back to android for my phone AND tablet (I already own a nexus 7). I simply am not a fan of the closed model anymore , and want something open like android. But I can't switch phones yet , I still need to pat the 544 dollars remaining on this phone and I also have cat repairs. So in the mean time , what are things I can do to make that later switch as painless as possible? I already use chrome , gmail, and I'm going to start buying music off amazon . I also have my music in google music and in amazon cloud player. Is the only other thing I can do is just not buy anymore ios apps and continue to not buy iTunes videos or movies? I'm going to be bummed losing my purchased ios apps, though. But not much I can do about that I guess. May keep the iPad so I at least have access to those. And I guess the Apple TV I own is still a good net flicks streamer. Any thoughts?

Bought The Nexus 7 (2013)


Sunday 02nd of March 2014 / androidforums.com
I purchased my first tablet ever the other day and am trying to get used to having both a tablet and a phone. I went with the 16 gb version (no LTE) because I couldn't think of a reason to use the tablet as a phone, and I keep 80% of all my stuff in the cloud (Drive, Box, Play, Dropbox, Amazon, and even Real Player Cloud). So far I am impressed with how FAST the Nexus 7 does everything and how smoothly it works.I have been skimming through all the reviews and "un-boxing" videos/articles, but am still unclear as to WHAT, exactly, everyone uses their tablets for. So, my request is for some ideas on how to best utilize this new gizmo for work and for pleasure.Any suggestions are welcome. (I'm not a "gamer" but I do play some occasionally, BTW.) Thanks for any suggestions/responses.
