Amazon Launches Cloud Drive Apps for OSX, Windows

Amazon followed in the footsteps of Dropbox, Google and others today. They’ve just released the first apps for their cloud storage service, thus removing the need to access it via a web browser. The apps aren’t going to do much good, though, because the Windows app doesn’t support XP, which is still the most popular version of Windows. But at least Vista and Windows 7 owners will be to upload docs, music, and photos.

There’s no word yet on apps for other platforms, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see an app released for the Kindle Fire in short order.
