Android: Browsing IFDB, finding Interactive Fiction, downloading

Wake Reality's vision has been to encourage Android app developers to make independent apps for browsing, organizing, and downloading Interactive Fiction stories.  We want to reiterate this desire.

We have put attention on the existing open source app Incant - which we have updated to Android Studio 2.3 development environment on GitHub with added launcher capability to Thunderword - which could also be extended to launch and organize stories for any of the other apps (Text Fiction, Son of Hunky Punk, Twisty, etc).

Someone could also make a new fresh app, Material Design or whatever. We encourage and invite it.  Thunderstrike on GitHub also has sample code - it can take only 10 lines of Java code to tell Thunderword to start a story.
