2.0 out of 5 stars Not ver functional September 30, 2012
Verified Purchase
The app plays music fine and is easy to purchase music with, but it is not very good other than that.

Be warned that you cannot set the app to download music to an SD card, you have to use the internal memory. Also, you cannot create a playlist on your device and sync it to the cloud.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunate victim of "stuck on phone" syndrome. November 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
I love my Amazon Cloud Drive. I have my entire music library stored in it, and for a while I really enjoyed using this app to access it. However, I had to delete the app today for one very stupid, very preventable reason: It won't install to SD card, and insists on being stuck on my phone.

Let me back up a bit... I have an LG Optimus V, and it has a very limited amount of space on the phone itself; That's why I have an 8GB SD card installed. Most apps are just fine being moved to the SD card, where they function just as well as they did on the phone. A few apps lose a little bit of functionality from the move (such as being able to automatically open when you reboot the phone), but for the most part it has been a useful feature and it makes the difference between me using an app (Mirriam Webster Dictionary) and deleting an App and giving it a low rating (

The Amazon MP3 App has great functions, great features, and works wonderfully to connect me to my Amazon Cloud Drive... But it takes up 11 MB of space on my phone! That's not a lot of space if I'm putting it on an SD card, but it's a vast, bloated beast when it's trapped on my phone with its 178 MB of space. After you consider all the bloatware (Virgin Mobile piles it on) and Google's necessary apps (Google seems to think their apps are all too good to reside on an SD card, too), I end up with a very tiny amount of space to work with before I get the dreaded warning about running out of space.

And today it came again, and I finally looked at my Amazon MP3 app and realized that have to do away with it. I don't want to!

5.0 out of 5 stars works great on my lg optimus May 14, 2011
I love this app. It works exactly like it should. It's easy to buy music and to download songs from the cloud drive to my phone. It's also fast and there's like zero load time at all. Once I get all my music on the cloud drive I'll probably use this more than my iPod.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best music store for Android (and everyone else) March 22, 2011
The Amazon music store is easy to use and includes nearly every band and song available through normal retail sale. Some indie bands may be missing, but the overall selection is solid. The MP3s can be played on any of your devices so you're not locked in to a particular company's products.

1.0 out of 5 stars How do I hate thee? Let me count the ways.... December 18, 2011
Verified Purchase
First, let me say: I have an Amazon Kindle Fire -- and I love it. This app is NOT the app that runs on the Kindle Fire. This app is, instead, what you run on an Android phone/tablet. With that being said:

This app is crap. It's entire focus is to get you to BUY music, rather than stream music from your Amazon Cloud Drive. The app is incredibly commercial-centric. From the moment you start it up you're given two choices/buttons: Cloud Drive Music or Store. Each time you boot it up, you get the same two stupid buttons: Cloud Drive or Store. The "Store" is ever present, regardless of where you may be within the app. What's more, the app continuously crashes hangs on my multiple devices: LG Optimus Slider, Motorola Triumph, and XOOM tablet. Regardless of whether you are using Froyo, Gingerbread, Ice Cream Sandwich, etc. EXPECT crashes and hangs. This app is total, total worthless crap if you have a lot of music on your Cloud Drive (like I do).

Amazon could do sooo much better.... Again: Total crap.

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazon MP3 hindered my 911 call for emergency help April 16, 2012
By jbru
I would give this application 0 stars if that were possible. It came with my Sprint phone and presumably Amazon paid Sprint so that customers couldn't remove the application.

That's fine, I just never used it. I never bought anything, I never browsed anything, I never even opened the application.

Of course, that didn't stop this worthless excuse for a piece of software from downloading random updates whenever the hell it wanted; like when I was trying to do other things with the phone. It also had a fun little feature (re: bug) where it would use 100% of the phone's processor for minutes on end. I say minutes because it would often run down the battery life on my phone. I would, randomly throughout the week, find that my phone had turned itself off due to low battery power.

Again, mind you, I had never opened or used the application.

I endured all of this with quiet patience because while it was definitely an inconvenience, I was busy and it wasn't *that* big of an inconvenience.

Then then time came when I was driving and tragically, a car in front of me struck a pedestrian. I pulled my car over in the road to block traffic from become a danger to the injured kid who was lying in the road with a compound fracture in his right leg (it looked like his leg had nearly come off), scrapes, contusions, broken teeth, and most likely a nasty concussion. The people driving the car that had struck the person got out and started freaking out. They stood around looking panic'd without a sense of direction. I got out of my car and dialed 911, spotted a street address posted on a nearby building, and ran over to the kid to see how bad it was.

Meanwhile, my phone stalled and I waited, and waited, and waited.

I'll heartily second this. I can't use this app as a cloud player on my phone because of it.
