Not wanting to be left out or bested by Google, Amazon today has released a desktop app for its Cloud Drive. Cloud Drive is a consumer grade storage service that is aimed to compete with Google Drive, Dropbox, and the rest. The new application is available for Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Mac OS 10.6 or 10.7.

The new application allows drag-and-drop functionality, just as if you were copying from one hard drive to another. Cloud Drive launched last year and feature 5GB of free storage with up to an optional 1000GB more for $20-100. The desktop app should make Cloud Drive a bit easier to use and bring it into line with the offerings of Google and Dropbox.
