Amazon has released an update to their Cloud Drive Photos app which now supports videos and natively supports the iPad and iPad mini. The update comes over one year and a half after Amazon first debuted the app.
Amazon’s storage service does not offer any more features than other options like Dropbox or Google+. By no means is Amazon ahead of its competitors with this latest update, however they are doing a decent job of trying to catch up.
iOS users can now upload and play videos up to 2GB in size or 20 minutes in length. In addition there are a few more minor updates like “large upload mode” that disables the lockscreen if the file is large enough, and “auto-save” which will automatically upload any current and future media to your device.
Amazon offers the service for free with 5GB of space, but if you’re planning to store a lot of videos you will have to look into one of Amazon’s paid options.
Amazon Cloud Drive Photos is now available for free from the App Store.
