Getting started with Amazon Cloud Player for Mac


After releasing its cloud player app for PCs, Amazon is now releasing cloud player app for Mac. This can help you in playing files stored locally on your Mac as well as the app lets you stream music from the cloud or you can purchase music from Amazon. 

Amazon Cloud Player -1


This cloud music view of the app greets you after downloading and installing it and logging into your account. For toggle between the two views, you can use button in the upper-left corner. To enter Amazon’s music store, press button in the upper-right corner. You can find two drop zones in right panel, one for creating new playlists and the other for downloading songs you have stored in the cloud so as to access it offline. By clicking on the small right-arrow button near the top of the right panel, you can close the right panel. At the top of the app, you can find search box and at the bottom edge current track and album information is displayed. This information is displayed with media control buttons, volume slider and a shuffle button. 

Amazon Cloud Player -2

As you become familiar with the app, it finds MP3s for any AutoRip CDs that you have purchased from Amazon and it displays them on the Cloud view of the app. These tracks along with downloads from Amazon will not be counted toward the 250-song limit for the free Cloud Player account. By paying $25 a year, you can exceed the limit of 250 songs slightly. 
Talking about the computer view of the Cloud Player app, you can see all your locally stored music and it is almost identical to the Cloud view. In this, you can find the absence of "Download music from the Cloud" area from the right panel. Computer view right panel displays your playlists. With this, you can drag tracks or entire albums to specific playlists or to the top of the right panel so as to create a new playlist. For removing any track from a playlist, open the playlist and go to that track to click “X” for closing it.
If you want to delete entire playlist or rename it, click on the Playlists button near the top of the left panel and then right-click on one of the playlists listed. Further, you can also use the left panel to view your music collection by artist, album, song, or genre. Using the two buttons in the upper-right corner of the center panel, you can toggle between the grid and list views. When you right-click a track, it will bring up a menu through which you can download the song, edit song info, create playlist, shop for more music or delete from your library.
Going to the artist’s page in the Store, you can get a short bio about the musician or band, photos and the latest tweet from the entity.
