Recently I have been revisiting Interactive Fiction, namely the Inform 7 engine and programming language, in order to see if I could modernise games built within this format and introduce them to a mobile market. 
There are multiple methods that can be taken to make this idea a reality, but these dwindle when you get into the meat of them to two options: Either develop an in-app html/java browser that will read Inform 7 files built for an online environment (which can be accomplished in multiple ways), or build an app-based interpreter in order to deliver the story files directly instead. 
Fortunately, three years ago, a Simon Christiansen introduced a basic interpreter on GitHub - but this hasn't been improved upon or updated in years. I have taken it upon myself to create a fork for the solution, in order to share my updates to the app as they develop.
