Moving from Amazon Cloud Player to Google Music

Today I thought I would try transfering the songs I have on Amazon over to Google Music. The main reason I am doing this is I ordered the new Google Nexus 7 Tablet and want to give the Google Music player a good try on its home platform.

To get all your music from Amazon, log into the Amazon Cloud Player, select the songs you want and then click Download.

The Amazon MP3 Downloader (install from here) will start up and begin to download your music. If your on Windows, the music will automatically get added to Windows Media Player.

Then head over to Google Music which will give you the option of uploading file by file or installing their Google Music Manager (also available for Mac and Linux), which can be setup to automatically move files from a folder or Windows Media Player to the Cloud.

Note the song being transfered above is from a game called Bastion. It is available on the Google Chrome Web Store, PC, Xbox 360 and the Mac App Store.

Well there you have it, if you have any issues transferring your music or links to moving music from another cloud service post in the comment. NOTE: Moving music to Google Cloud will take longer to upload because the music will have to be matched and categorized similar to iTunes match.


YouTube Video for Bastion: If you have not played this game try it out.

Journey to the Amazon, Store not Jungle (Part 2: Amazon App Store)

Today I’d like to talk about the Amazon App Store for Android.

Though the Amazon’s App Store may not have as many Android apps as Google’s own Market, its selection of apps is very good and well tested( no malware ) Another advantage I see of having Amazons App Store is the ability to load it on other non Google certified hardware such as tablets from Vizio, Velocity Micro etc….

Of course the best bonus is the FREE app of the day which is prominently displayed at the top of the App Store, which encourages users to come back daily to see what free apps they can pick up, as well as see discounts on other popular programs.

I still patiently wait for my Amazon Kindle Fire to arrive next month. Leave some comments.
