Amazon for a long time now has offered its cloud storage through its Cloud Drive Service. But the cloud service only allowed you to manage it through the web or with the desktop apps.  To enable you to have more control the company has released mobile apps for its Cloud Service on iOS, Android and Amazon’s Appstore.

The Cloud Drive app offers folder views of all storage. You can also view, share or link to supported files,PDFs, spreadsheets, images and much more. Cloud Drive offers services just like Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive. There are also options to stream stored music and videos.

But beyond those options there seems to be no functionality. There seems to be no chances for automatic syncs or upload of files. There are also no options to move or edit files that you are viewing. For specific controls to work, you will still however have to use the more purpose-built Amazon apps like Cloud Drive Photos or Prime Music. These setbacks kind of leaves the Amazon’s Cloud Drive Service still not completely featured.
