Amazon has launched a new photo upload app for Android devices called “Amazon Cloud Drive photos”. The app extends the current Amazon Cloud drive service to enable instant photo upload and sharing features for android devices. The app also integrates with Android OS and adds another option for photo uploads in the Android Gallery.
Users can upload individual photos or full albums to the cloud drive that will automatically sync with their home computers and other devices enabled for Cloud Drive service. This makes the service a viable option for cloud storage as opposed to other services such as Dropbox.
The app integrates with Facebook , Twitter, SMS, email and other apps that are installed on the device such as Google+ and Dropbox.
Amazon Cloud Drive offers 5GB of free space with additional storage available for $10/yr for an additional 20GB. Cloud Drive supports upload of photos, documents, videos and other files.
