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!

What's new in Version 13.1

  1. Sync Backup improvements:
    1. Support for Dropbox.
    2. Added option for Overwrite existing files even if newer (only for modes To remote folder and To local folder)
    3. Select Modules path option for fresh install to Restore from Sync Backup (cloud or folder).
    4. Added two groups for Manage folder aside from Default: Backup all, and Restore all.
    5. It's now possible to Restore from read-only folders from the external SD Card (mode To local folder, backup folder is SD Card).
  2. Verse Notes Editor improvements:
    1. Added prevention of verse To less than verse From when saving causing phantom entry.
    2. Editing phantom record is now possible and will correct the invalid verse To. Existing phantom records still can't be shown though as the verse range is invalid.
  3. TheWord RTF/RVF and e-Sword RTF support improvements:
    1. Text-alignment: left, center, right
    2. Font-size
    3. Preference for enabling Font-size as well as Use of original colors instead of being mapped to MySword system colors compatible with themes.
  4. MySword non-Bible modules can now embed video and music using video and audio HTML tags. The source src attribute should contain the data table id entry similar to images.
  5. Editor improvement: new Insert item - File (Deluxe). Formerly, only File links can be inserted but now you can also embed the actual file similar to Insert image.
    1. Videos can be embedded with a link for external video player and full screen.
    2. Music can be embedded.
    3. Other types are embedded as links. Note that MS Office can't open office files as it requires them to be read-write but Google apps can.
    4. Note that inserting a very large file is limited by the memory available to MySword.

Bugs Fixed in Version 13.1

  2. Editor crashes when the current Bible is in Parallel view and you use Insert hyperlink with text.

  4. "Popup failed: lengh=0; Index=-1" for Bible module with Morphology but without Strong and Strongs popup navigation is enabled.
  5. Compare and Parallel popup will not show bibles in case the current Bible's abbreviation contained a plus symbol (+).
  6. Editor Insert icon/symbol should use popup in case split pane is not visible.
