How does the digital form of soundtracks on Amazon work? Is it a voucher that redeems on a music downloading site?
You check out at the Amazon MP3 store, and it's automatically added to your Amazon's CloudDrive. You can immediately download your mp3's, and download them later from your CloudDrive.
The CloudDrive is basically their Internet storage service, you get 5 GB free with an Amazon account, but none of your Amazon MP3s will use that quota (unless you delete them from your CloudDrive, which is the same as relinquishing your rights to it). I use the CloudPlayer at work, which streams it from your CloudDrive. I think I have roughly 10 GB of MP3s purchased through Amazon, and it's worked spiffy. It also syncs with my Android devices with the AmazonMP3 application, so I can take a copy of my MP3s anywhere. I'm sure I just described how it works anywhere though. What I like the most is that everything I buy is DRM free... which I'm sure iTunes has as well. The major difference between the two services for me is that I don't like how iTunes takes over my media collection, so I don't have to deal with that this way.
