Previously the Amazon Cloud Player was not playable on the default iOS browser Safari but users could still play tracks one at a time (even after the incompatibility warning their device received), and not so surprisingly there’s no dedicated app for the Amazon Cloud Player either. But now, iOS users can play songs from the Cloud Player without any hassles using the Safari browser. We’re not sure as to how this happened, but even after getting the warning, all you have to do is tap continue and just like that you can play tracks more easily than before with all the music controls being functional. The buffering is dealt with quickly and the player even works if you close the browser and put your device on standby. But sadly this looks like a U.S only update for now, hopefully Amazon expands this service to other countries as well. It seems like Amazon is doing something or the other to get the cloud player for iOS up and running. It will be interesting to see if they come up with a dedicated app soon.
