Android 7.0 and newer tablets can do multiple windows. I evenly split the screen for this screen shot of Thunderword running The Moon Watch Glulx story on the left with the enhanced Text Fiction for Thunderword app on the right used as a launcher. Both apps are working together, the right being the tool to organize and pick stories, the left to run the story. Of course, they don't have to be on the screen at the same time, but it demonstrates how the apps really are working together. This is on a Pixel C tablet layout.

Immersive mode is also possible so that the title top title bar on Thunderword yields space to the Interactive Fiction story. Here is a link to a second screen shot showing more space given to Thunderword on the split screen: https://github.com/WakeRealityDev/Scree ... g?raw=true

When I posted this topic at the New Year start, I hoped someone would step forward to make an IFDB browser app for the community... as visual app design is clearly not my strong suite. But I'm plodding along and hoping someone is inspired either out of criticism or inspiration ;) I've restructured the open source Incant! app to split it's story browsing of IFDB into a module that other apps can include. This week I added a new RecyclerView that is much more flexible in presenting the list. Code is now up on on GitHub. Here is a fresh screen shot of the latest progress, picking a story on an Android tablet:
