March 27th – Amazon Cloud Drive

Full Disclosure: I wanted to write about one of my favorite cloud storage platforms,, but they are closing shop on May 1st.  So just recapping we’ve looked at Google Drive (including “A Week With…”), iCloud from Apple, OneDrive from Microsoft, Dropbox, all of which are free.  Today we look at a online storage system that isn’t free, but a lot of people have access to it, they might not know it.

March 27th – Amazon Cloud Drive

If you’re a Amazon Prime Member, and really you should be, you’ve been enjoying 2 day shipping (sometimes 1 day or same day!), the Amazon Video Library and Amazon Prime Music – well you life is about to get a little better with Amazon Cloud Drive.

All Amazon Prime Members have space in the cloud which they can store unlimited Photos, and 5 GB worth of movies that isn’t attached to their purchases from Amazon.  As you can see from the screenshot, you can get unlimited everything from $59.99 a year.

Once you’ve uploaded some photos (see above) you recognize a similar interface to other cloud storage systems.  The ability to organize in albums, share and find pictures quickly are all located on the left side and you can upload on the top right.  Amazon Cloud Storage, like most of the other cloud storage services, has an App for your phone or tablet that easily allows you to share to and an app that you can download and install to your computer – personally I don’t like downloading these things but I suggest you try it out – remember it the “personal computer” so do whatever your “person” likes!
