Apps enable management and file upload

Amazon has finally released desktop apps for its Cloud Drive service. The utilities, which are available for Windows and Mac machines, enable users to manage Cloud Drive content and upload documents, images or other files without using the web-based interface.

Users can quickly initiate file uploads using drag-and-drop onto the Cloud Drive icon, while uploads and downloads are handled in the background. The apps is said to be designed for unexpected restarts or interrupted Internet connections without losing data, though downloads and uploads can also be manually paused.

The apps do not provide the same functionality as some competitors, such as Google Drive and Dropbox, that offer automatic synchronization for files and folders.

The Cloud Drive desktop apps are available as free downloads directly from Amazon.
