Interesting features include the ability to re-download anything that is uploaded to the Cloud Drive, and the ability stream all of the music stored online to any Android device that has the Amazon MP3 app installed.
You can file this one in “totally obvious” bin. Sprint put out a press release today, stating their official opposition to the proposed AT&T/T-Mo merger.

Previously a user would purchase the PLUS version via the paypal link inside the free version. The new Android Market policies no longer allow this. I assume this will only benefit the developer. Currently by avoiding the Android Market he’s bypassing Google’s commission, but I believe more people will purchase the paid version now that its easily available in the market.
