Amazon faces up to the iTunes Store by optimizing the Amazon MP3 store for the iPhone

Amazon is still on its way to making things difficult for the iTunes Store. After announcing their AutoRip service, which provides us with an MP3 copy of every physical disc we’ve purchased since 1998, they now come with a revamped version of their MP3 Store, specially designed to work on Safari on the iPhone or iPad, which will allow us to buy music from any iOS device, without having to go through the computer.

The reign of the iTunes Store is undisputed when it comes to online music stores . Amazon has always been in the shade, in second place, but wants to make things a bit more difficult for Cupertino . So they have prepared an HTML5 version optimized for the iPhone of their Amazon MP3 Store.

This revamped version of the Amazon Store offers access to a catalog of over 22 million songs that display correctly on our iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices. The new MP3 Store has been specially designed to run at full speed in Safari , and will provide us with customised recommendations and charts created by Amazon itself.

When we buy a song, it is automatically downloaded to our Cloud Player account, which we remind you offers 5GB of free storage, and which we can play on any of our devices that have the application downloaded .

Unlike in iTunes, we find a store on a web page, which allows us to operate on it on any device , while in the iTunes Store we cannot leave the devices on the block.

Of course Amazon doesn’t stop doing things right with their music store, as the last thing they introduced to us last week was AutoRip, a service that allows customers who have bought physical discs since 1998 to download a free MP3 version of them . This is certainly one more advantage of buying music from the Amazon MP3 Store over the iTunes Store. And you, where do you buy your music?
