Earlier this week, Amazon launched its Amazon Cloud Drive and Amazon Cloud Player for Web and Amazon is giving 5 GB of cloud storage away - for free. Therefore the competition had to answer and mSpot - which was launched roughly one year ago - just did so, by also increasing its free storage offering to 5 GB now. While some might prefer to use Amazon, mSpot has one real benefit which Amazon hasn't: It's supporting iPhone, Android, PCs/Macs and Internet TV as well as it also works outside the U.S., unlike Amazon's Cloud Player for Android which only works for U.S. customers! However, like Amazon Cloud Drive, mSpot enables users to quickly upload their music to the mSpot Cloud and then immediately start listening from desktop browsers, Android devices and iPhones for free.
The service was launched for Android in June last year and for iPhone in December 2010. With the latest upgrade, mSpot now offers free cloud storage for the first 5 gigabytes but also offers additional storage which is available for purchase; 40 gigabytes for US$ 3.99 per month.
