Amazon has announced the launch of Cloud Drive Photos for Android app, making it even easier to upload, store, share and enjoy photos from Android phones and tablets. Android phone and tablet users can download the free Cloud Drive Photos for Android app to take advantage of Cloud Drive’s 5 GB of free storage, and have thousands of their photos at their fingertips in the Amazon Cloud. Users can purchase additional storage for as little as $10 a year for 20 GB. The Cloud Drive Photos for Android app is available in the Amazon Appstore or from Google Play.
It’s easy to save your photos from your Android device to Cloud Drive. Simply press and hold on a photo album on your Android phone, and select “Upload to Cloud Drive” to save existing photos from your device to the Cloud.You can select photos directly from your Cloud Drive and share them through Facebook, email and many other apps. You can save your entire photo collection in Cloud Drive and your photos will be available to enjoy on your Kindle Fire, Android Phones and tablets, or with any web browser. Your photos are displayed in a horizontal mosaic or vertical grid view, optimized for the screen size of your Android device. Amazon Cloud Drive uses the same reliable and fast data storage infrastructure used by Amazon to run its own global network of web sites.
Cloud Drive is already integrated into Kindle Fire HD, making it seamless to upload, store and enjoy your entire photo library. With Kindle Fire HD’s high-resolution screen, photos come alive in stunning high-definition, and the mosaic view arranges personal photos beautifully. Customers can also use their Kindle Fire to view their favorite photos on their TV using HDMI out, which enables you to connect an HDMI cable from your Kindle Fire to any device that has an HDMI port.
