IMPROVED AND BETTER.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Amazon Music with Prime Music (App)
I previously wrote a negative review years ago... But now? WOW! Prime Music has changed everything for me, and I'm happy to endorse this app and the service! I've deleted the old review and have totally changed my mind.
My only complaint now is that this app is NOT compatible (or available) on Amazon Fire TV, and this just doesn't make sense! I can load Pandora and a dozen other music services on the Fire TV, but Amazon's own Prime Music service isn't available on their own hardware? WHY?!? Amazon, PLEASE get with it and put this app on the Amazon Fire TV! I would definitely get a lot of use out of it!!!

Yes, I know exactly what you mean! I have same phone and LOVE it except for the small amount of memory. I, too, tried the Google Music app but uninstalled it after seeing it took up so much space. like you I really do wish Google would make their apps for sd. I had to ditch Google+ and uninstall updates to Maps, Voice Search, and and am not updating Youtube. It's a shame cuz I love Google products. Anyway, was not thrilled to see the AMZ Appstore update doubled its size (tho I do like the dark theme much better) It's odd that the Amazon mobile app DOES go on sd card. I'm not going to install the latest update because I'm afraid it will end up having to go on internal mem. lol. anyway, if AMZ can make its mobile app moveable to sd, then why not ALL its apps? as for music, I have PowerAmp and love it. def. worth the $5. also have a 32GB card (you can get one on AMZ for under $50 now and, with holidays here, maybe that price will drop even further. If you want a great free offline music player, I've read lots of great reviews of Winamp, too. I highly recommend you go the offline player route w/bigger card with this phone. I figure I'll use Google or AMZ cloud player whenever I upgrade my phone cuz I'm going to make sure my next phone has at LEAST 512mb space to play with. I hear that VM is getting a version of LG Black in near future. anyway, thx for the great writeup. cheers!

The MP3 app can be moved to the SD card. The Amazon Appstore cant, and I expect that is for security reasons; perhaps it needs to be 'locked' to the phone that carries the account. SD cards can be removed and given away to friends.

Your Mom says:
Well, the app may take 11MB on your phone, but even worse is that it can only download the music I bought onto my phone and not the SD card (I have a Samsung Galaxy S3 on Verizon; and the music tracks are like 7MB each). I end up having to download the songs onto my PC then syncing it to my phones SD card. Ugghhhh

Same issue on my S3 from VZW. Use the "My Files" stock app navigate and just move the MP3s to your exSD card rather then the whole PC sync way, unless of course you do not mind doing it that way.

I would root your phone if possible and remove the bloatware, period. I would do this in a heartbeat if it was me. Check out XDA forums and see if there is a solution to your problem. Hope that helps.

Precisely. At the inception of ICS (ice cream sandwich) external cards are made directly inaccessible by the app as an initial download location. Amazon MP3 went from full stars to 1 after this change. Presented solutions include, 1) rooting your phone and bypassing the ICS requirements 2) manually move downloaded songs to the SD Card after they fill your partitioned memory. Extremely poor options to users who wish to simply use the phone without added complication. Amazon should be influential and capable enough to make a direct download to an external sdcard possible. A complete degrade in product service and quality. I would totally understand and find it reasonable if Amazon addressed the issue with integrity. They could directly tell end-users who if anyone forced them to enact this change. Was it Google? Was it the media copyright industry? Because they stay silent on the matter, I chaulk it up to pure incompetence.
