STEADY ON, bookseller Amazon has released its Cloud Player app for the iPad and iPad Mini.

The app, which lets you store your music digitally with Amazon and access it through the cloud, is already available for PCs and the iPhone and iPod Touch. Now it swaggers onto the iPad Mini and iPad.

"We introduced our Cloud Player app for iPhone and iPod touch last summer and it's been incredibly popular with our customers so we've now expanded it to iPad," said Steve Boom, VP of Digital Music at Amazon.

"Our goal is to make Cloud Player the most widely compatible cloud playback solution available, giving our customers the ability to buy their music once and enjoy it everywhere."

Basically you are looking at some extra digital storage for music on your latest Apple gadgets.

The Amazon Cloud Player app will either play from the cloud - we recommend somewhere where there is free WiFi, like a coffee shop for example - or you can download your content to play offline.

Users can import 250 songs for free. If you are in the market for paying to store a quarter of a million songs, you will have to break out at least £25 a year.

New features include an "Updated look", which we take to mean one that fits iPad screens. µ
