A week after Google’s announcement and release of Google Drive, Amazon has released their own Cloud Drive Desktop Application. The Cloud Drive service is not new to Amazon; it was simply lacking the desktop experience. This application works on systems running Windows XP, Windows 7, and Mac OS 10.6/7. Users will be able to upload files or folders to their Amazon Cloud storage by either drag and drop to the Cloud Drive icon or Right-click any file or folder and send to Amazon Cloud Drive.
Unlike Google Drive or Dropbox, Amazon Cloud Drive Application does not have a sync folder. This is a feature that is must have for services like these. It is very easy to use and convenient. If Amazon wants to be able to compete with Google and Dropbox this is a feature that will need to be integrated soon. You are given 5GB of free storage like Google Drive with the option to purchase addition storage. To install the application check Amazon Cloud Storage. At this time, there is no Android app, so accessing the Amazon Cloud Drive service from your phone or tablet isn’t a feasible option.
This was a necessary move by Amazon to keep up with the competition. With so many cloud storage services, which one do you use and why?]]>
