    Really happy to have this good an app - I would send money (a little, anyway) to hasten development. A couple of problems -- the z-board keeps popping up even after the soft keyboard has been selected. One bonus: advent.z6 seems to work even though v6 support is supposed to be nonexistent.

    Interpreter seems a but slower than the old ZaxMidlet. Unfortunately the J2ME version still relies on a separate text input dialogue. You can type text on the screen but you can't enter it into the interpreter without this separate dialogue. This renders it pretty much unusable. Can't input be direct?

    I really like jfrotz and i am excited that it is finally on android , but when compared to ifrotz its kind of a let down ,sorry for the buzzkill, i finally broke down and bought a ipod touch just to play it on the go.... I really hate apple by the way ,but I was tired of waiting for android to catchup, 2 years now and twisty is still lame, that is a major fail, I would pay a good sum of money for a good interpreter that would have 1- different font settings 2- customize colors 3- copy and paste from story file to command line 4- take notes 5- adjustable size settings for font that are not so tiny , replace tiny font with humongus font please just for me i will pay you ....haha
