Now onwards, Cloud Drive users can easily access the app just from an icon on computer desktop. Last year, Amazon introduced Cloud Drive app to store important photos, videos and documents on Amazon’s server securely. Of course, there is Cloud Drive website for direct access, but for the more convenience of drag-and-drop and contextual menu file uploads, Amazon has recently launched desktop apps for its Cloud Drive service. Currently, this app is available for Windows and Mac only. Cloud users should grab this Free desktop app to value their precious time. One can easily download the Cloud Drive desktop apps for free from Amazon’s website.
Earlier, the service users had to utilize the browser or a mobile app to manage files. Now, users can drag and drop or right-click on files and folders to send them to Amazon Cloud Drive directly. Additionally, uploads and downloads of files are handled in the background. With this amazing facility, Cloud users can continue with their work even for the circumstances like unexpected restarts, interrupted internet connections, etc.
Make sure that, logging in at My amazon account is required to set up application. Once users have installed the app, they can see a cloud-shaped icon placed in system tray for the easy access. Content for Cloud Drive storage app can be stored by two ways, by right-clicking a file and choosing “Upload to Cloud Drive” or by dragging and dropping the file to the icon. It is expected that from these, “Upload to Cloud Drive” contextual menu option worked only on Windows, while the icon for drag-and-drop files showed up in the menu bar of Mac only. Don’t worry about how to store, because Amazon provides you a quick four-step as a user-guide.
Unfortunately, the app still needs some improvement as it lacks file syncing functionality unlike other competing services of Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive and SugarSync.
