The certainties Crank showed about Storyboard-built GUI apps — their small RAM footprint and low power consumption — were important factors in its selection for the Dash.

I definitely would say [Crank] exceeded our expectations. They were nailing it every time with the GUI. In parallel, they were already implementing those assets as the GUI designs iteration—which kind of caught me off guard. They were a lot further ahead in the process than we were.
