AOL’s music app, PLAY, has been available on Android and iOS devices for some time now, but not for folks with the Kindle Fire (unless they managed to sideload it of course) and today it has finally arrived. AOL announced a new version of PLAY for the Kindle Fire. It’s been redesigned for the tablet and meant to take full advantage of its 7″ display. For those of you who aren’t familiar with PLAY, it’s an app that lets you listen to the MP3 tracks you have stored on your device, discover new music via AOL’s weekly album selection as well as tune into over 55,000 SHOUTcast radio stations. If playing music isn’t enough, you can also keep yourself up to date on the latest music news from AOL.
AOL PLAY is available now as a free (ad-supported app) but Kindle Fire owners can pick up the ad-free version for free later today on the Amazon Appstore (regular price $0.99).
