Just a short month ago, we launched the CloudMade platform to mobile and web developers. Since then we’ve signed up over 2,000 developers who are building a huge variety of applications including navigation, restaurant finders, real-estate portals, social networking sites and enterprise solutions.

For example the British newspaper, The Guardian recently launched a new site built using CloudMade mapping and geo services that lets users add news articles to the map. Users of Apple’s popular App Store can choose from several iPhone applications built using CloudMade’s platform, including the popular Trails hiking and walking application.

With Marc on board, you can expect even more, even bigger things to come from CloudMade.
