Use The New Amazon Cloud Drive Service with iOS iOS devices
Amazon introduced a new Cloud Drive service offering browser-based file storage and music streaming. In the countries where this is offered, anyone with an Amazon account can receive 5 GB of free storage.

Unfortunately, the service doesn't work with Mobile Safari. But if you use a third-party browser on your iOS device which enables you to change the User Agent setting, like Atomic Browser (US $1) or Mobile iCab (US $2), then simply set it to use desktop Safari as the User Agent and the Amazon service works fine.

Only at a technical-kludge level does it "make sense". ;)

If it will work with other browsers I hope they can fix this soon.

I imagine one of two scenarios will happen:

1.) It will eventually support Mobile Safari--they just haven't had enough time to test it.
2.) Amazon Cloud Player for iOS will be appearing in the App Store.

I will go out on a limb and predict that one of these two things will happen within three months, nullifying the need for this hint. In the meantime, this is a good find!

Cloud Drive on iOS can be achieved with the WIFi2HiFi app: http://www.wifi2hifi.com

It streams any audio from the PC/MAC to the iOS
