This might work especially well for for tablet devices running Android.

Another thing that might help, and I haven't looked at the code much, but I know that Angband frequently prompts you to choose from a list--an item from your inventory, equipment or the store, a spell from your book, etc. If all of these lists used the same API for getting a choice, we could hook into that for a platform specific UI that could let the user tap on one of the choices.
