I first tried this when it came out (in 2012?) and it was completely useless as it failed to play back any of my Amazon UK mp3 purchases. I uninstalled it. Recently Amazon started the AutoRip service and as I'm a regular CD purchaser several of my purchased albums appeared in my Cloud Player account so I tried the amazon app again. It is much improved and now works really well. It plays all the music I've bought and displays the cover art and tag info very clearly. It also plays locally stored files. I noticed that the app can't do gapless playback.

I can see how this could be very useful on devices with fixed storage but my device has a microSD slot so it's not quite so compelling. The inability to play gapless music properly makes it less than ideal.

edit: July 2014. I now have this same app on a Galaxy Note running Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean). It still works the same but despite this newer version of Android having built-in support for gapless playback the Amazon app still doesn't manage it, not even for files on the device. Other music players do play gapless now so this has become a more notable deficiency. Also as disk capacity and network speeds and coverage improved I don't really need compressed music stored on Amazon's servers. Anywhere I have WiFi or 3G I can listen to the music stored on my own hardware back at home, lossless if it's a good connection or compressed if not. This leaves Amazon Music as a kind of glorified streamer/downloader for mp3 versions I don't want of CDs I already bought and ripped myself. I think Amazon ought to offer the tracks in better formats such as m4a and flac, with gapless playback enabled.

This app has started to look a bit dated and low quality next to Apple's offerings and in some ways not even that great compared to what you can do for yourself with your own PC and a cheap broadband account.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good on Laptop, rubbish on phone. 26 Feb 2014
On phone: Takes a fair few attempts at buying a song before the download starts which can result in being charged more than once for a song. All songs I purchase eventually download and show on my phone, play fine, no problem. Its when you purchase a song on your phone and it doesn't show up on your cloud player and there is no record of purchase history so you have to buy it again!
On laptop: All songs purchased download straight away, can be uploaded to other devices easily and the cloud player has record of the purchase.
So, I would not recommend this app for your phone but it works great on the laptop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super 16 Mar 2013
By Scooby
Verified Purchase
I 'Shazam' a song (android app) to tell me the artist and song name and then go into Amazon MP3 player and buy it. Usually 60p - 90p as they are normally old songs I want to download. However Amazon library seems to have nearly every song/album/artist on the planet!. Takes a fraction of time to load to the 'cloud' with option of downloading onto device. Has changed my life (which is rather sad!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Your Music Everywhere! 16 April 2014
Verified Purchase
Although uploading my music collection (very large) took a long time I can now play from my tablet wherever I can get connected. I use it while on holiday as free Wi-Fi is available in the part of Spain I visit. I would like to see an editing facility as some music has lost it's album artwork and has detached from the album (especially compilation albums) but I am somewhat particular in this regard.
I thoroughly recommend this app.

3.0 out of 5 stars Works sometimes 27 Sep 2013
By The Doc
Verified Purchase
Trying to download from Cloud player was a little confusing, particularly in specifying where to download. Problems with the download itself (about 170 songs) involved a 'time out' freeze, with some files not being downloaded and it was not clear how only the missed files could be downloaded to merge with the files already there. Reattempting downloading resulted in duplicate files being added to the original. Another retry generated 'no longer available for download' on about half the files. The fourth attempt seemed to work OK. Perhaps it will work better next time?
