Amazon Cloud Drive Photos for iOS Gets Video Uploads & iPad Version
Back in May, Amazon launched the Cloud Drive Photos app for the iPhone, which let you sync and backup your images to Amazon’s online drive. Well, with v2.0, the app now supports Apple’s tablets and also works with videos.
The new app lets you protect your personal videos in your Cloud Drive, letting users upload or download video up to 2GB or 20 minutes in length. “That’s long enough for the majority of personal videos, and still slightly longer than YouTube’s default setting of 15 minutes (ahead of account verification),” TechCrunch notes.
In January, Amazon enabled its auto-upload feature for the Cloud Drive Photos app and this will be extended to videos as well, so any footage you shoot will automatically make its way to your cloud storage. Plus, all your videos on your device will also be uploaded without needing you to manually do it. Finally, you can set Cloud Drive Photos to upload only over Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi and cellular.
Amazon Cloud Drive Photos v2.0 has native support for iPad and iPad Mini. The free account gives you up to 5GB of storage space, and you can buy additional memory if you want. Of course, this pales in comparison to Flickr’s new 1TB of free space, so that’s a far better deal.
You can get Amazon Cloud Drive Photos from the App Store.
