We are happy to announce the availability of MySword 6.3 for download. MySword 6.3's major features are Compact mode and WYSIWYG Editor improvements.

Please go to the Download MySword page.

The noteworthy new features of MySword 6.3 are:

  1. Only the Free version is now available in Google Play while the one available from the website can be upgraded to Premium or Deluxe version. The website version can always be installed over the Google Play version by checking Unknown sources (Android Settings->Security).
  2. Compact mode improvements:
    1. The 2 custom buttons at the bottom is increased to 4. Note that the 3rd is only useful for phablets while the 4th only for tablets, otherwise they will either be off the screen or overlapping the page down.
    2. Added new top right menu and custom button options: Verse List, Stats and other Info, and short cut to Module types (Bible, Commentary, Dictionary, Personal Notes, Journal and Book). For the bottom custom buttons, if the current view already matched the short cut (for example, you are already in Journal view and there is a Journal short cut), tapping it will switch to Bible so in effect it is a toggle to that view and Bible.
  3. WYSIWYG Editor improvements:
    1. Added Insert Box (via + or Insert button). You can specify the box color, style, size and background highlight/color. You can adjust the internal margin or padding by going to Format->Style parent tag, then adjust the padding which is default to 0.2em.
    2. Added new Format action: Edit parent HTML.
  4. Full screen with double tap and single tap both disabled is no longer allowed as it is hard for many users to exit full screen.
  5. Journal and Book list now follows similar sorting as in other views like the Bible: when Android Language is set to non-English locale, abbreviations in that locale are displayed first after those starting with numbers and before English; but using the English locale will cause non-English abbreviations to be displayed last.
  6. Added new Bible view preference: Old Testament quote. By default there is no style so you have to use the Visual Color Theme or CSS Editor. Note that there are only few Bibles with OT quote tags like KJV.
  7. Edit Bible Cross References (Deluxe) via left Navigation drawer or top right Bible button bar (locate the hyperlink icon). You can add, edit or remove Bible references on the current verse using a UI similar to Bookmark or Verse list manager.
  8. Added Stats and other Info bottom button (i icon; available also in Compact mode bottom menu) which currently have About Module and the Deluxe Word Frequency and Word Occurrence. In the future, more will be added like Extract verses.

Bugs Fixed in Version 6.3

  1. Navigating to a Bible link in Full screen when Show topic in full screen is checked causes a crash.
  2. Compact mode long tap popup menu will no longer show up if the Navigation drawer on the left was partially opened then closed (not fully opened). The only way to bring it back is either to restart MySword or fully open the drawer then close.
  3. Book/Journal entries with title containing # do not show up.
  4. Non-WYSIYWG Editor crashes loading content with length greater than 10,500 and also limits the content to that size in some devices like LG.

We are making MySword better. Thank you for your feedback.

Enjoy using MySword!
