New Version - v.14.5

MySword 14.5's major features are Bible Maps improvements (fixed the Stamen maps issue being available only up to the end of October 2023; added more maps: ArcGIS and Esri) and Format improvements (option to break words on en dash and em dash or -- equivalent).

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.

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!

What's new in Version 14.5

  1. Maps improvements:
    1. Fixed the Stamen maps issue being available only up to the end of October 2023.
    2. Added more maps: ArcGIS (Streets and Imagery, for Android Oreo and higher) and Esri (WorldStreetMap, NatGeoWorldMap, WorldImagery).
    3. Option to exclude ArcGIS to speed up Map initial load for slow devices.
    4. Changed the default from Stamen to Esri.NatGeoWorldMap.

    The new default Esri.NatGeoWorldMap (Rev 1:11) and ArcGIS.Imagery (2Ki 23:29-30). With ArcGIS.Imagery, if Bible Maps setting is set to Modern Maps only, the zoom level can be higher and ArcGIS provides zoom level similar to Google Maps (NASA maps can't even reach that level as it's satellite based).

  2. Copy improvement: better support for apps that don't fully support HTML CSS styles as they are not rendered but shown instead. If there are no Red words nor OT quotes and showing them is disabled then no styles will be embedded.
  3. Format (Deluxe) improvements:
    1. Option to break words on en dash and em dash or -- equivalent. Please see Preferences in the Format screen. Note that these will be counted as words so the word count will increase and old formats may adjust.
    2. Common start or end will no longer break additional format. Previously, overlap logic included contained but shorter and either flushed to the start or end so the format is broken into 2.

    Gen 1:5 BSB uses em dash (—).

    Format break on en dash and em dash

Bugs Fixed in Version 14.5

  1. Large button Editor shows Split pane to the right even if not enabled.
  2. Format (Deluxe) bug: Color, highlight, box, line containing bold/italic/underlined at the end doesn't work.

What's new in Version 14.4

  1. Detect verse support for European non-English format/punctuation like Polish and French verse references.
    1. Bible references in Polish Bible footnotes using Polish/German format will now be automatically converted to links.
    2. Editor has new option in Menu for Detect verses punctuation: Standard, German/Polish (Mt 7,7-8.15.24-27), French/Portuguese (Mt 7.7-8, 15, 24-27).
  2. Improved Parallel (Premium) view verse mode autoresize columns, especially for mixed languages and differing font sizes. Requires updated Android System WebView to at least version 92.

    Parallel Bible Mixed Languages

  3. Modules with empty file names (e.g. .bbl.mybible, .cmt.mybible) will no longer show errors as they are automatically excluded and deleted.

Bugs Fixed in Version 14.4

  1. Tap word selects verse preference doesn't work on Parallel view in Single column mode.
  2. Scrolled parallel paragraph view (Premium) history navigation doesn't resize columns.

Bugs Fixed in Version 14.3.1

  1. Show Highlights available in the Bible View Preferences resets upon restart.
  2. Tap word selects verse preference doesn't work on Parallel view.
  3. Download update doesn't work if port 4443 is blocked by ISP so default port should be used.
