Amazon has announced its MP3 store has been optimized for iPhone and iPod touch. Users can now buy digital music from Amazon’s catalog of more than 22 million songs, directly from Amazon’s store through mobile Safari — the Amazon MP3 mobile website is built on HTML5. Purchases are saved to customers’ Amazon Cloud Player libraries for instant access and playback using the Cloud Player mobile apps. Amazon first launched an iPhone-optimized Kindle Store in 2009; the company has traditionally avoided integrating its store features directly into its iOS apps due to the large amount of content available and to avoid paying a 30 percent cut of sales to Apple.

Amazon is great for music, they keep a copy of all the music you purchased from them (CD or MP3) for you to download or stream to any device you want. No need to fill up your memory with all your music, keep a little in there for when you don’t have Internet access and just stream the rest when you want to listen to it. Apple has Match but it costs, Amazon streams for free.
