Amazon is looking to become your source for all things streaming media. Its next step is taking its music streaming more seriously – well, at least for iOS users.

The company is introducing Prime Stations for iOS with version 4.0 of its Amazon Music app. The feature is what you’d expect: music stations tuned to certain genres and preferences, a la Pandora. The more you use the feature and skip or highlight songs, the more it learns about your tastes.

Prime Stations include unlimited skips, and the updated app brings along an improved design for easier browsing, as well as some performance bumps. It’ll also serve up recommendations on songs, albums and playlists based on your listening preferences.

Prime Stations were already available on the PC, Mac and Fire tablets, but this is the first time they hit iOS. There’s no word on Android support yet – we’ve contacted Amazon and will update this post if we hear back.
