Who needs iTunes when you have Amazon around?
Amazon MP3 Review
by on March 10, 2011
The Amazon MP3 BlackBerry app serves a simple enough purpose – to get you music. It’s a free app, but the music ranges in price from free to 89p per track, with albums costing in the region of five to ten pounds.
The interface is simple, and fairly slick. You scroll left and right between tabs, making it slightly reminiscent of BlackBerry OS 6.
The tabs let you see top songs, top albums, new songs, new albums and genres at a glance. There’s a search bar at the top for finding something specific quickly. You’ll need to make good use of the Menu button for navigation too, especially when you want to do something like go from an individual song to the album it’s from.
On each song you can choose to preview it (the quality was quite good) or purchase it depending on where you click. The interface as a whole is generally intuitive, but there might be a bit of trial and error during your first few uses.
The size of the catalogue is pretty strong, with lots of older and more obscure albums and EPs available for most artists.
Though general discoverability of unusual content isn’t great, this is still a very handy and slick storefront to have around, with well-priced content.
