Running an APEX app native on an iPhone - revisited

Almost two years ago I wrote two blogposts about how to run an APEX application as native as possible on an iPhone (see the demo and the details). But that was so long ago, using Phonegap 1.3.0 and APEX 3-something.
Nowadays we have APEX 4.2 with more mobile capabilities and Phonegap is rebranded to Cordova and already on version 3. So the question is: Is it still possible, and is it easier of harder?
The answer is: it is still possible and way easier. Especially the command-line-interface (CLI) of Cordova helps a lot to get up and running within a minute. And for getting data in and out of the database we now can use the RESTful web services of the APEX Listener.
Details will be revealed later, but here's the "live demo".
