Amazon launched its DRM-free music store and all you need is a lightweight downloader application.
This application is a small trade-off, but is an annoyance nonetheless. ZDNet user Tripell sums it up in a Talkback:
A separate downloader does sound stupid, any number of ways to save it to the local computer.
Others have questioned why Amazon has a downloader app, but at least the e-commerce giant isn't alone. Turns out these extra applications (which happen to ride shotgun with digital media) are starting to add up --and I'm getting sick of them.
Wasn't the Flash player supposed to take care of these little headaches? Apparently not when everyone is trying to reinvent the wheel. Bottom line: A little more focus on the user experience and a little less attention to requiring various apps would be a boon to customers.
