Frotz adds UI improvements, note-taking feature

Craig Smith has released an update to Frotz, his text adventure game interpreter for iOS devices. Frotz allows users to play classic text adventure games on their iPhone, iPod touch and iPad including such titles as the Zork Trilogy, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Trinity as well as new text adventure games developed by interactive fiction writers and fans. Frotz supports any titles written in Infocom’s Z-Machine format, providing access to a wealth of downloadable content. Frotz 1.5 adds several UI improvements, particularly for the iPad, and now allows users to access a note-taking area for any story so that they can make notes from directly within the app. The new version also adds Dropbox support to allow users to synchronize saved games for playing on multiple devices and also includes authors, descriptions and artwork for its built-in stories, more bundled games from the Interactive Fiction Database (IFDB), and the ability to bookmark pages in the story browser and keep track of recently played stories. Frotz is a universal app and is available from the App Store as a free download.
