The only apps that will run on a non jailbroken iPad are apps obtained from the Apple AppStore.
The Amazon Mp3 has to be established @ Amazon, I have that on my iPod and use it way more then iTunes as songs are cheaper @ Amazon. Amazon has it's own cloud and songs can be held there or downloaded to your Apple device. Amazon also has fantastic sales from time to time on albums, had the number one album Red for instance and 50 others for $1.99 for one day last month. The Prime has other benefits free two day shipping for prime, and the movies are free, somewhat older movies, but a good selection and some great TV shows. It 's pretty new at it and gets better selections very month. Incidentally, you can get all the Amazon apps on your PC, any tablet, including iPad, iPods, iPhones (free) so if you are reading a book (bought @ Amazon you can pick it right up where you started on any device. Same with the Mp3 s, a pretty good deal. The Amazon streaming vid app lets you go right to the prime vids then weeding through everything else, I love it, I have it on my New app Tv too. Click and go. $79 gets you Prime a year. Mp3 cloud doesn't! need Prime membership. One thing good about Amazon, is if you made a mistake, say clicked buy then rent free, you can call a real person to correct your mistake.
And, yes, amazon apps are only android, again because Apple is a closed operating system. I do have those apps on my Kindle and Apple apps are usually better.

Are you talking about the Amazon Prime App for the iPad? While it does most of what you say, apps cannot be downloaded to the iPad without going through the AppStore.Originally Posted by cyndy
Oddly you will not find the Amazon mpg3 player in the Apple store, but it is on Amazon. And I notice it is not on my iPad, but it is on my iPod. And I downloaded it on it myself. I guess it isn't available on the iPad. Hmm, odd, as you can't download anything but Apple apps.
And I don' have a jail broke iPad.
The Amazon Cloud Player (read: the MP3 player) is available on the App Store. It's an iPhone app, so it won't (doesn't) show if you are looking at iPad apps only.
Thanks, Mickey,that answers that!
