Cloud storage services are increasingly becoming the new bone of contention between the major tech companies. From Apple to Google to Amazon and Microsoft, everyone wants to have a successful cloud offering. With the kickstart of Google Drive a few days ago, its natural to assume that all the other contenders in the arena may be feeling a little insecure.
The insecurity emanates from the fact that huge numbers of users are already hooked to one Google product or the other. And many of them would prefer to use Google’s own cloud than go for another company’s cloud service.
This essentially means that the cloud offerings from other companies will require to be lot more lucrative to attract the users now. And that pretty much explains why Amazon has just released a desktop app for its cloud storage service titled Cloud Drive. The desktop app has been released for both Windows and Mac users, specifically for Windows 7, Windows Vista, Mac OS 10.6 and 10.7.
The desktop app makes the whole process of adding files to the cloud a lot more easier. Users can simply drag and drop the files to a folder which adds these files to Amazon’s Cloud Drive. However, Amazon still doesn’t offer the feature of file synchronization across multiple devices, a feature which is becoming increasingly important for most users.
