After what seems like an eternity, Amazon has finally launched its Cloud Drive service in Canada. Out of the box, this works like Dropbox, Sugarsync or any number of cloud storage service: you get 5GB that can be used to store and sync documents, music and photos. Paid accounts start at $10 for 20GB and increase to $250/year for 500GB. Compare to Google Drive’s $240/year for 400GB and that’s quite a deal.
Amazon doesn’t have mobile apps for Cloud Drive per se (unfortunately), but it does offer Cloud Drive Photos for Android and iOS, which gives users access to their photo collection in a nicely-designed app interface.
Adroit users can also access Amazon’s Music Locker service, too, but that isn’t officially available in Canada (and we’re not going to tell you how to access it).
