Install MySword APK file (preferably downloading the link above in your Android device).

To do this, go to Settings->Security and check Unknown Sources. Then try to install again MySword APK.

After successful installation, run MySword. You will then be asked to specify a folder in your SD card (or internal storage) as a place for the Bible, Dictionary and Commentary modules. You may choose to use the default. After specifying that folder, you will be asked to download modules so that you can use MySword. You can choose the suggested modules (includes some popular English Bibles, Strong's dictionary and TSK commentary) or add more modules by tapping Bible, Commentary or Dictionary buttons and selecting modules).

You can also manually install any modules by downloading the GZip files from this site, unzipping them and copying them into the storage folder you had specified.

Enjoy God's word!

    4. Long tap popup menu will no longer go to the upper left.
  3. Detect verses improvement:

  12. In Editor in Split view (Deluxe), after Search Bible and Paste type selection is displayed, there is a new item "Just set preview" which can be used not to paste the verse as link but just move the preview to that verse. This is not available for other Module types.
  13. Create blank XRef file (Deluxe) in Preferences->Cross-Reference. XRefs can then be added via Edit Cross References.
  14. Search for Diff between two Bibles in Parallel Diff mode (Deluxe). Please note that when you are in Parallel Diff mode view and went to Search, the Type and Keyword is not used as the Search switches to Diff Search. The search will be fast with the following Parallel Diff settings: Ignore case; Ignore accents/diacritics; Don't include titles, notes, XRefs, Strongs; and there is an Exact Index for search.

    3. WYSIWYG Insert Compare verse link do not work
  2. Links of Bibles with abbreviation containing + in compare do not work

    2. Reverts to FTS type when re-opened.
  4. Verse Selector for Honeycomb or higher will crash if the current verse book is invalid, i.e. book number is higher than 66 or zero (which can be caused by invalid bible links in modules; can be tested by long tapping Verse Selector then entering for example 67.1.2 or 0.1.2)

What's new in Version 7.0

  5. Share Compare Bible (Premium) now allows you to select which translations to share.
  6. Parallel view (Premium) improvement: In non-paragraph mode, the column width can be adjusted via touch and drag of the top header only when the entire width of the table fits because the horizontal panning takes precedence over touch to resize. Touch-drag is better supported in Lollipop and higher.
  7. Reading Plan and Own Pace Progress tracking (Deluxe) (for Froyo [Android 2.1] and higher only)

    Reading plan compact

    1. Reading Plan

      You can create a reading plan with single track like from OT to NT or multiple tracks like OT, NT, Psalms and Proverbs; start any day; specify the number of days; and keep track of your progress.

    2. Own Pace Progress Tracker

      If you do not have specific plan but rather read the Bible at your own pace, you can also keep track of your progress and log the verses you had read for the day. Using the Bookmark labels to identify your tracks, you can easily add reading progress.

    3. Track the number of verses read per day per track as well as link the notes, tags with notes and journal entries written.
    4. Tapping the bottom progress information will give a summary with graph of verses read and notes written per day (for Jellybean and higher).
    5. Print the plan or progress.
    6. Calendar icon for Reading Plan added to:
      1. Bible button bar on top (rightmost)

    See this article for more details: Using MySword Reading Plan

  8. Summary (Deluxe) improvements:
    1. Bible Preference Summary highlight: loading could be very slow for non-Bible content whose size exceeds 32KB so it is not automatically summarized but a message is just displayed.
    2. Popup (on demand summary): in case the size is very large (128 KB or higher for Bibles or 50 KB for others), a confirmation message is displayed if you want to proceed.

Bugs Fixed in Version 7.0

  6. Summary (Deluxe) crashes in popup when there are any of the following characters in XRef Merge text .^$*+?()[{}\|
  7. Switching via Bible Preferences Merge adjacent Bible references or Horizontal Scrolling in Split screen (Deluxe) will make the header of all Bible views similar to the last Bible view.
