Amazing things Rick's made
I co-led a team that built an app called REX (rex.is/here) which is a social network for sharing things you're interested in. REX is a hybrid mobile app (Javascript, html, css in a native wrapper) that is almost indistinguishable from a purely native app. REX was reviewed by several prominent developers from places such as Twitter, Google, and Tumblr, and we've been told that its hybrid code is some of the best they've ever seen. Additionally, with REX, we've built in a system to deploy updates without needing to go through the app store week-long approval process (this also fits within Apple's terms-of-service) which has drastically sped up our development iterations.
