You can configure quick command keys, customize the font and size, and change the color scheme of the interface. Text Fiction also enables stories to be read aloud via the TTS engine and lets you save and restore commands from the menu.

Although the interpreter only supports the Z-machine format it comes with helpful features that make up for that shortcoming. If you are looking for an Android app to play Z-machine text adventures, go with Onyxbits Text Fiction.
