Anyone know if Amazon will release an Amazon Cloud Player (MP3) app for Windows Phone 8? That is one app I'm really hoping to see in the Marketplace soon. The app exists for iPhone and Android, so hopefully Windows Phone is next. They've made other Amazon apps for Windows Phone, so I'm hopeful they'll release the music app too.

I contacted Amazon on Facebook and got this reply:
"Thanks for the great feedback! I've sent this suggestion to our Amazon MP3 team for consideration. In the future, you can send your comments here directly: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/conta...wpcentral00-20"
I clicked on that link and submitted my request for an Amazon Cloud Player app. Please do the same if you want that app as badly as I do. Amazon usually listens to their customers and if enough of us clamor for the app, we should get it, hopefully.
Windows Phone Central guys, have you heard anything if one is in the works?

Has anyone heard any new news/rumors about the Amazon Cloud Player app for Windows Phone? Per a WP Central story back in July, there was a job opening for someone to develop said app. That was about 6 months ago. How long do these things take? Impatiently waiting...

I contacted Amazon about this back in early January and got this as part of a reply:
"I realize how convenient it would be for all our customers if the Cloud Player App is made compatible with Windows Phone, but please understand that "Windows" has exclusive rights to the hardware and software that would make it possible for Amazon.com to provide Amazon Cloud Player App for these devices.
Because of these restrictions, we are unable to offer Cloud Player App on Windows device."
This makes it sound like Amazon is claiming they need some reserved APIs to make Cloud Player work. Given other music streaming is available for WP, I find it hard to believe that. I do find the lack of a "we're working on it" in the response to be a bit disheartening though.

Paul Thurrott tweeted this earlier today: "Dear Amazon. Please support Instant Video and Amazon MP3/Cloud Player on both Windows 8/RT and Windows Phone. Thank you. Love, Paul."
