When Amazon released UI updates to the Amazon Appstore and Kindle applications several months ago, the Amazon MP3 app was left out in the ugly cold. Though I personally have all of my music uploaded to Amazon’s cloud, I chose to take advantage of Google’s Music service because the application on my smartphone and tablet was measurably better than Amazon’s offering.
That all changes today, sort of. While I’d argue that the Google Music still looks a little bit better than Amazon MP3, the Amazon MP3 player has been updated to match the UI provided by Amazon’s other application, part of Amazon’s retooling effort to make things pretty for newly-minted Kindle Fire owners.
Amazon MP3 has been given the “white text on gray backdrop with orange highlights” treatment that has made its Kindle and Appstore applications easy on the eyes, and for the first time ever I truly enjoy using the Amazon MP3 service. The MP3 store on Android has also gotten an overhaul, and looks just as gorgeous as the MP3 player.
If you use Amazon MP3, be sure to head over to the market and update your application to the latest and greatest version. And if you haven’t yet checked out Amazon’s offering, I can finally recommend you give it a try for yourself.
