The Amazon MP3 store now plays nice with iPhone and iPod devices.
Amazon is taking on iTunes on Apple's own turf.
Beginning this week, iPhone and iPod users will be able to access an iOS-optimized version of the popular Amazon MP3 store – not as an App Store app (a move that Apple likely would have sought to block) but through the Safari browser. To get to the platform, boot up your phone, and navigate over to Amazon.com/MP3, where you'll find a sleek and shiny HTML5-based MP3 Store Web application.
"Since the launch of the Amazon Cloud Player app for iPhone and iPod Touch, a top request from customers has been the ability to buy music from Amazon right from their devices," Steve Boom, Vice President of Amazon Music, said in a statement.
