MySword 11.2's major features are support for non-encrypted ESword Mapx modules, The Word RVF modules, importing of ESword .lstx and The Word .vsls.twm into Verse List; and other improvements and bugfixes.

If your device is Google Play Store (Android Market) enabled, note that you can also download the stable older Free version (MySword 10.4) from the Google Play Store.

Please note that only the Free version is available in Google Play, Samsung Galaxy Store and Amazon while the one available from this website can be upgraded to Premium or Deluxe version. The website version can always be installed over the Google Play version by enabling "Allow from this source" for the particular app that will open the APK (Chrome or any File Explorer/Manager) for new devices.

Note: When you download using Google Chrome in your Android device, a message will appear saying:

This type of file can harm your device. Do you want to keep mysword4android-{version number}.apk anyway?

This is just a generic warning from Google Chrome (other browsers may say a similar warning) because you are downloading an APK outside Google Play. Just tap OK.

After the download and you are prompted to Open, tap Open then select Package Installer if asked. If Chrome asked:

For security, your phone is not allowed to install unknown apps from this source.

Tap Settings, then make sure you enable installation by tapping Allow from this source. Then tap Back (or the top left arrow). Then tap Install.

If you missed tapping the Open and the dialog was closed after the download, you can still install via your File Manager/Explorer. Locate the downloaded APk file then tap it to install.

After successful installation, run MySword. For newer devices, the following message will appear:

Storage permission (access to files on your device) is required for downloaded modules like Bibles for MySword app to work. Please grant the permission on the next confirmation box.

Tap OK. Then tap Allow when this confirmation box appears:

Allow MySword Bible to access photos, media and files on your device?

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!

By Default, the label is displayed both in the Tag screen as well as in Bible but can be controlled via the Tag Preferences in the menu or Bible View Preferences, respectively.

What's new in Version 11.1

  1. Support for bibles, commentaries, dictionaries and books of other Bible apps. Just place the modules (zipped or not) in mysword folder in the Internal Storage and restart MySword. The following are supported:
    1. e-Sword
      1. Bibles - e-Sword version 9 to 10 (.bblx, RTF-based) and version 11 and higher (.bbli, HTML-based). Formerly, the .bblx can be renamed to .bbl.mybible but if it contained RTF formatting then they will show up in MySword, so converting to The Word then to MySword is the only alternative. But now MySword has basic RTF interpreter. Colors are mapped to MySword standard colors.
      2. Commentaries - e-Sword version 9 to 10 (.cmtx, RTF-based) and version 11 and higher (.cmti, HTML-based).
      3. Dictionaries - e-Sword version 9 to 10 (.dctx, RTF-based) and version 11 and higher (.dcti, HTML-based).
      4. Books - e-Sword version 9 to 10 (.topx and .devx, RTF-based) and version 11 and higher (.refi and .devi, HTML-based).
    2. MyBible
      1. Bibles - .SQLite3 files with optional accompanying notes in commentary file .commentaries.SQLite3. Zip file will also do.
      2. Commentaries - .commentaries.SQLite3 files.
      3. Dictionaries - .dictionary.SQLite3 files.
    3. USFM
      • The zip file name should contain the word usfm. This zip file must contain the individual books with extension .usfm. Try to test USFM zip files from
    4. The Word
      1. Bibles - only UTF-8 encoding is supported (.ont, .ot and .nt).
      2. Commentaries - .cmt.twm files.
      3. Dictionaries - .dct.twm files.
      4. Books - .gbk.twm and .dev.twm files.

      Only unencrypted and unzipped modules are supported (EXE files are not supported).

      For Commentaries, Dictionaries and Books, only RTF content is supported (RVF is not) and compressed modules are supported but not encrypted ones.

    e-Sword, MyBible and non-Bible The Word modules are not migrated into MySword format but instead adapted by adding SQLite views or adding some fields or table. USFM and The Word Bibles are migrated to MySword format and the original file is deleted. All modules are moved into the appropriate folders.

  2. New Text-to-speech (TTS) preference: Skip parallel abbreviation.
  3. New Deluxe Editor preference for smartphones via Menu: Split view panes. This will enable the split view which is only available in tablets for Deluxe. The Split icon is also now avaiable on the right pane and can make the right pane full-width hiding the Editor.
  4. New Deluxe Search preference for smartphones via Menu in Search Bible: Split view panes. This will enable the split view which is only available in tablets for Deluxe. Added also Split icon at the bottom right to cycle the split size similar to the Editor.

Bugs Fixed in Version 11.1

  1. Fixed the bug of Dark holographic theme drop down text hard to read in Android Q.
  2. File Manager tap on .mybible and Open as for .mybible.gz and no longer worked in Nougat and higher.

  5. Non-bible content popup may have an invalid creation of Bible link in case a reference pattern is found in the HTML attribute value.
  6. Strong's links on text (Deluxe) don't work on text ending in punctuation marks followed by Strong/Morphology.
