The old adage is as true today as it's ever been: good things come to those who wait. Today, Amazon.ca finally granted Canadians access to Amazon Cloud Drive. Our North American siblings can now re-upload all of the photos they've already backed up to iCloud, Dropbox, and Google Drive to Amazon's servers using Cloud Drive Photos for Android and iOS.

Cloud Drive works well for storing music, especially for people who have stocked up on the $5 albums that Amazon rotates each month. Amazon's Cloud Player allows users to stream all of their uploaded songs to any computer or Android device, but tracks purchased via the Amazon MP3 Store don't count toward their storage limits.

All users get access to 5 GB of storage for free, with additional storage available starting at ten Canadian dollars a year. Now that Cloud Drive for Windows and Mac supports automatic file syncing from computers to the web, Amazon's offering is a pretty cheap competitor in what is now a crowded market.

The free Cloud Drive Photos app is available below. Canadians, have at it.

    quite a "lie." I'm a US resident in Canada on a work visa. I have over 4000 songs in my Amazon library, and have nearly 100 videos on Amazon. None are accessible in Canada.
    Useless.
