Amazon cloud player
I'm thinking of signing up to amazon cloud player, rather than iTunes match ad amazon allows streaming which I prefer.

I have 1 playbook now, and another will be here for Xmas.

So is the official app available, if not why, along with kindle! I think the browser player will work but it's not the same.

Have you checked with Amazon? We won't know why if it isn't available.

Re: Amazon cloud player
Amazon didn't even write a Kindle reader for the PlayBook. What makes anyone think they will write ANYTHING for a non-selling PlayBook?

Re: Amazon cloud player
You can stream music from Amazon Cloud on the PlayBook, but you can't download the app. Kindle Cloud Reader works just fine too. There is a an Android version of Kindle that's been converted for PB and can be sideloaded. I haven't used it but people on other sites say it works great.

Don't mind the naysayers here - if you read you can find workarounds for many things on the PB.

You can check at crackberry to see if there is an android version of cloud player that's been converted for PB. You can also request an app to be converted, but not all apps work.

Ah yes, one can always sideload something. Not a naysayer - just stating facts.
Amazon isn't writing anything for the Playbook.

Re: Amazon cloud player
whooa there people...

I found a version of Amazon MP3 for cloud playing but it was an older version, I sideloaded it, but as I'm in UK the streaming wasn't there for UK users.

It does work from the browser, but it's a bit of a faff on, would rather have the native app. Anyone help? The newest Amazon MP3 app is v2.71


I must need the newest version to allow UK cloud playingof music but ccan'tffind anything.

Anyone help?

Re: Amazon cloud player
You would get more help at the other site I mentioned. They have a lot more folks with PlayBooks. Sorry but this site just isn't as active as it used to be. I don't know anything more besides what I already said.
