Free storage

New users get 5GB of free storage on Amazon Cloud Drive. This alone might be reason enough to download the app.

Album viewer

Open up the app, and you'll see all of your photos displayed by album. Unfortunately, you can't move them among albums or rename anything. This makes it tough to organize anything from within the app.
