Amazon MP3 Service

Category: Showcase

We posted about the Amazon Music Selection Ajax experience, and people seemed to like it apart from: a) Real player, b) The code.

Today Amazon launched their MP3 service, so this interface is going to get a lot more usage as you can grab 256kbs non-DRM songs for 89 cents a pop.

There is a downloadable client for transferring the songs. I wonder how the user experience will compare to iTunes and having the entire experience in a web browser shell, as apposed to be able to do most of the work on Amazon.com itself.

worked flawlessly for me here on a mac. looks like iTunes might have the first real competition finally. and that’s a good thing.

btw, the downloader app has the option of dumping you DLs wherever you want, including the iTunes lib. not as slick as staying in iTunes, but personally i never liked the ITMS interface anyway.

now, let’s see A9 dump a bunch of money into songbird!
