Amazon adds file synchronization to Cloud Drive service

updated 05:41 pm EDT, Mon April 1, 2013

New feature insures same file version across Mac OS X, Windows, Android

A Monday update to Amazon's Cloud Drive application has delivered a crucial feature -- cloud drive users can now synchronize content between Windows, Mac OS X or Android devices. Changes to files stored on the cloud drive are automatically propagated to other connected devices. The update removes the biggest flaw most reviewers saw for the service on release.

"The updated app makes it simple for users to put files in Cloud Drive and to access them from any of their computers, ensuring that they always have access to the latest version of their files from home and on the road," Amazon said in a statement.

Users of the service are awarded with 5GB of storage for free. Upgrades are available through 1TB for $500 per year, undercutting offerings from closest competitor Dropbox.
