Amazon Releases 'Cloud Drive Photos' App for iPhone

Amazon today launched Amazon Cloud Drive Photos, an iOS app designed to give Amazon Cloud users a way to access, view, and manage cloud photos from the iPhone.

With the app, users can both upload iPhone photos to their accounts and browse existing photos. Photos can be queued for download and uploaded automatically whenever the Cloud Drive app is opened.

- Store and secure thousands of photos in your Amazon Cloud Drive
- Protect your memories – photos from your iPhone or iPod touch are automatically saved to Cloud Drive whenever the app is running
- Have access to your entire photo collection in the Amazon Cloud, even those that aren't in your Camera Roll
- View your photo albums in stunning layouts from your iPhone or iPod touch
- Share your Cloud Drive photos on Facebook, Twitter, and through e-mail
Photos stored in Amazon's cloud can be viewed through the iOS app or through a browser, which gives Amazon Cloud Photos a slight boost over competing Apple service Photo Stream. Like many other cloud services, access to Amazon's Cloud Drive is free, with 5GB of storage included. Additional storage space costs $0.50 per gigabyte per year.

Amazon Cloud Drive Photos for the iPhone can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

I dont like my photos to be synced in any 'cloud'.
Not sure I'd want some pencil neck behind a desk approving the photos and judging me on my many depraved acts that may or may not be on said iPhone.

I feel like the number of services for syncing photos is disproportionate to the number of people that actually want a service like that.

RAW handling?

This is weird, just two days ago there was a post (http://peternixey.com/post/49928526270/dear-apple-lets-talk-about-photos) about how Apple needs to have a better cloud photo solution, or their competitors soon would. That didn't take long.

I use Flickr myself but have not really used it to sync my photos. I like how Amazon is a "neutral" third party. Plus their uptime/data servers are top notch. A trusted company.

I agree with you. Amazon is much more trustworthy than say, Google. This does look worth at least trying out.
