Amazon launches Cloud Drive App

Not to be left behind, Amazon just launched it's new Cloud Drive Desktop App for Windows & Mac. But while Google and Dropbox work by creating virtual folders that synch, this creates an icon that you can drag files into that then transfer in the background to Cloud Drive.  Working with the transferred files though, still needs to be done with the browser and still leaves much to be desired compared to the desktop folder experience, it does save you the separate login and upload though.

So with No Android or iOS support yet, is this really targeted at competing with the others? Or is it just a stop gap until more features come through? As the online storage war heats up, let's wait and see..
