Reverso (http://www.ventonegro.org/2009/10/scheme-hits-the-app-store/)
is another one, also in Gambit.

A lot of Scheme compilers are written in Scheme, if that counts.

Since you mentioned web frameworks, there are quite a lot of them
written in Scheme.  Some are:

* Awful (http://chicken.wiki.br/eggref/4/awful)
* Hop (http://hop.inria.fr/)
* LeftParen (http://blog.leftparen.com/)

Best wishes.
