Amazon MP3

Your EVO 3D comes with the Amazon MP3 application that enables you to shop, purchase, and download music from Amazon.com. Cloud Player is also a part of Amazon MP3. Within Cloud Player you can access music stored on your Cloud Drive, enabling you to manage, play, or download music using Amazon’s secure online storage space. The Amazon MP3 app icon is located in the Apps menu on the first page. Before you can begin purchasing music, you need to set up an Amazon.com account. If you do not have an Amazon.com account, visit Amazon.com on your computer and create an account.
