New Version - v.13.0

MySword 13.0's single major feature is Google Drive, OneDrive or local folder backup synchronization.  Please use this new feature instead of the deprecated Backup/Restore data. See How to use the New MySword 13.0 Sync Backup Feature for more details.

Please note that only the Free version is available in Samsung Galaxy Store and Amazon (also previously in Google Play) while the one available from this website can be upgraded to Premium or Deluxe version. The website version can always be installed over the Store 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.

If your device is not Google Play Store enabled or you can't download the app from Google Play, in your Android device's browser, click either of the download links below.

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.

Please also note that the latest version of MySword (MySword 11.1 and higher) requires Lollipop (Android 5.0) or higher. If your device is ICS (Android 4.0) up to Kitkat (Android 4.4), please download the older version MySword 11.0 below. If your device is Gingerbread 2.3.1 or Honeycomb, please download the older version MySword 9.1.2 below. If you still have Eclair or Froyo, please download an even older version of MySword 7.4 below.

Installation

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!

    Sync Backup Sync Folders

     Please use this new feature instead of the deprecated Backup/Restore data. See How to use the New MySword 13.0 Sync Backup Feature for more details.

Bugs Fixed in Version 13.0

  1. OT Search results of Hebrew Interlinear like OHB and BIB+ are not right-to-left
  2. Import Notes and Journals may fail to update some entries after a new entry is imported.
  3. Background image in some Themes (Premium) doesn't show up in popups of some new Samsung devices.
  4. Parallel view selection doesn't open on the current Bible view for split screen (Deluxe).

What's new in Version 12.3

  1. Text-to-speech current verse is now in the notification drawer.
  2. Support for some USFM bibles with different header like Malayalam Indian Revised Version Bible from ebible.org.
  3. Copy in non-Bible modules will now only use Wiki text if Editor is not in WYSIWYG for text, otherwise text similar to Share will be used. HTML version stays the same though. Pasting in the Editor using the button will still use text so non-Wiki will not show formatting properly so use long tap instead.
  4. Better support for Apostolic Bible Polyglot (ABP) Strong extensions (please download the Dictionary ABStrong).

Bugs Fixed in Version 12.3

  1. Text-to-speech speaks Strong numbers.
  2. Android R (11) popup maximized has margins all around.
  3. Maps' Location info and People Relationship's Person info popups are not working and displays an error: Processing failed with error: ... LifecycleOwners must call register before they are STARTED...
  4. Module selection autocomplete long title is shrinking the column for abbreviation in Android Pie or lower.
  5. Deleting a Bible module will cause the Compare and Parallel options in the module selector to disappear but restarting MySword restores it.
  6. Interlinear BIB+ with no Strong (Morph only) causes wrong popup navigation and possible popup index fail.
  7. Parallel view (Premium) verse mode containing some modules like EasyEnglish and GW that don't have placeholders for empty verses (possibly caused by paraphrase in EasyEnglish merging verses, or variants in NT like Mar 9:44 GW) will have the verses out of sync.
  8. Parallel view (Premium) Text-to-speech freezes the screen for few seconds if the number of verses is high using Google TTS (Samsung TTS is fine though).
  9. Non-Bible Text-to-speech (Deluxe) freezes the screen for few seconds for very long content using Google TTS (Samsung TTS is fine though).
