Amazon MP3

Amazon's just updated its Amazon MP3 app for Android to version 2.4. And with it comes a layout optimized for tablets, a new color scheme, personalized recommendations from the Amazon MP3 store (if you're in the U.S.), more prominent s huff and play-all buttons, and a lock-screen player if you're on an Android 4.0 device. Not a bad bunch of improvements.

We've got download links after the break, if you need 'em.

Amazon MP3 app updated for tablets, Ice Cream Sandwich


Funny, with the "Personalized Recommendations" Amazon seems to think I'm a big fan of Whitney and Adele. Of the several songs and albums I have with Amazon, not one of them are remotely similar to either of those two. Not even in the same genre.

Personalized my ass.

On BigRed - this POS is bloatware.

When will these companies allow the PURCHASERS install / uninstall the CRAP we don't want?

Ya root - understood.

I totally agree.

Overall, I like Amazon but the fact I cannot remove their pre-installed app from my Droid X is a big turn-off. (I do have the Amazon app hidden with LauncherPro but I still hate the fact it's on my phone and I had to waste time today updating an app I'll never use.)

I don't know how much Verizon gets for forcing crapware on their customers but I doubt it's worth it when you factor in all of the ill-will it generates with their customers.

While the player doesn't have the options something like PowerAMP has, I love Amazon MP3, and this update finally made the app at least look modern. I suppose it's only useful if you use their cloud storage.

Strange. I was just listening to music with the Amazon app yesterday and thought: So far this is the only audio player that I have that doesn't put controls on the lock screen. They need to update this.
And poof! It's updated!

Hmm, I was just thinking today how nice it would be if I was a millionaire...
