Installation

Install MySword APK file (preferably downloading the link above in your Android device). If this message "For security, your phone is set to block installation of applications not obtained from the Google Play" or a similar one appears, you will have to enable the installation of applications from sources other than Google Play. To do this, go to Settings->Security and check Unknown Sources. Then try to install again MySword APK.

After successful installation, run MySword. 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!

Bugs Fixed in Version 8.0.1

MySword 8.0.1 is just a bugfix and there are no new features added.

  1. Some download module problems in Honeycomb and higher.

What's new in Version 8.0

  1. Google Play tablet support compliance. For tablets without physical home/back buttons in Non-Compact mode, the virtual menu at the bottom right is now gone but a new one is displayed at the upper right. This is an alternate to the (Blue) Gear button at the bottom and can be hidden in Preferences->Display settings (can also be shown in phones, though it will cramp the upper buttons area).
  2. New Display setting: Scroll auto select verse. Scrolling that causes the current verse to be out of view will automatically select a visible verse adding to navigation history and syncing also other views in case of split view.
  3. Support for special commentary link/href of the form of 'c-* verse' or 'c-= verse' for Kitkat and higher for module creators:
    1. 'c-* verse' will show a list of commentaries that has entry for the verse, a popup showing the commentary entry will appear when a commentary is selected. In case there is only one commentary where it is found, the list will no longer show.
    2. 'c-= verse' will show a list of commentaries with plain text content (first 500 characters) for the verse, a popup showing the full commentary entry will appear when a commentary abbreviation is tapped.
    3. At the top of the list of commentaries, there is Compare which shows the first 500 characters of each commentary.
    4. The Compare max length default of 500 can be changed in Preferences->Other Look and Feel.
  4. Option to show commentary link on Bible verse which shows a list of commentaries for the verse:
    1. On Other look and feel preference, there is Show commentary link to add a link at the end of every verse. Also added it near the end of Bible Preferences.
    2. Commentary link text can be selected from a list of symbols and emojis or a Custom text can be entered.
    3. At the top of the list of commentaries, there is Compare which shows the first 500 characters of each commentary.
    4. Added Commentary link on Bible verse popup as well as the Merged XRefs and Bible references.
  5. Long-tap verse popup menu now included Commentaries for the verse which list all commentaries with entries and a Compare option at the top of the list.
  6. Better support for Morphology dictionaries:
    1. It is now possible to select a different Morphology dictionary other than the default RMAC (in Preferences). For module creators, add a field to Details table named Morphology and set the value to 1.
    2. Morphology links with codes not found in the selected Morphology dictionary will be automatically looked up on other morphology dictionaries so that different formatting or codes like in BIB can use its internal dictionary instead of the RMAC.
  7. Bibles with many verse rules now load a little bit faster (e.g. BHSE).
  8. Editor improvements:
    1. Support for abbreviation with spaces in dictionary, commentary and book links.
    2. Support for icons subfolders in Insert Icon (Deluxe).
  9. Highlighting/Formatting for non-Bible views (Deluxe) for Kitkat and higher:
    1. Select any text range (even partial words) and apply Bold, Italic, Underline, Color, Highlight and Box similar to Bible's Format feature.
    2. Insert after a highlighted text an Adhoc notes similar to Bible's Tag text or Adhoc notes.
    3. Insert after a highlighted text an icon similar to Bible's Tag icons.

    5. Enable editing directly of content for direct annotation.
    6. Search also included a new search type: Format

    Format

    Note that the edited content is not directly saved to overwrite the original content but only the difference with the original content (diff patch) is saved in format file. If there is a significant change in the original content (updated module), some diff patches may not work because of missing anchor context.

  10. Reading Plan Own Pace (Deluxe) improvements:
    1. Picking up created journals for a verse range read is now accurate to the verse number (before only up to the chapter number).
    2. Adding a verse reading now gives a warning when the verse from or to is invalid.
  11. Long tap lookup dictionaries (Deluxe) now included Compare which shows the first 500 characters of each dictionary. The Compare max length default of 500 can be changed in Preferences->Other Look and Feel.

    1. Selecting NT in Range then selecting a book causes a crash.
    2. Selecting a Jump book then selecting another book sometimes retains the highlight on the previous book.
  2. Error loading bible chapter with a verse containing empty Translators notes: <RF><Rf>; e.g. version 2.3.1 or lower of ASV.

What's new in Version 7.4

  1. Search Highlight improvement: added option for All which also shows the highlight on verse references.
  2. Text-to-speech (TTS) improvements:
    1. Better support for TS2009's Hebrew and for other modules as well: This will prevent Hebrew words and other non-English words from being skipped by TTS. A word map file named tts-wordmap.txt is created on the mydata folder. It is initially configured for TS2009 and the associated dictionary with 2 Hebrew word entries mapping to English equivalents, and two quotes used in Hebrew names transliterate to English. Please see the file on how to extend it and use for other modules as well.
    2. Speeds greater than 1 now have proportionate faster pause between verses.
  3. Popup improvements:
    1. Dictionary popups now has a heading that can be tapped to see the word in other similar dictionaries for Kitkat and higher. This is useful for example in Strong's popup and you want also to see it in AHLB without going back to the Main view. For Strong's, the equivalent Hebrew/Greek word or phrase or break down of words in the phrase are also looked up so that Hebrew/Greek dictionaries are also used.
    2. Non-range verses in Merged Bible references now have Compare links (also in Verse List preview).
    3. Auto-detect verses now included the following book abbreviations: Gn, Lv, Nm, Dt, Mr, Jo, Rv.
  4. New preference: Compact buttons opacity. You can now adjust the opacity (default 70%) of the compact mode buttons and page scrollers. Please see the Display settings section.
  5. Support for special dictionary link/href of the form of 'd-*word' or 'd-=word' for Kitkat and higher for module creators:
    1. 'd-*word' will show a list of non-Strong dictionaries where the word or nearest it is found, a popup showing the dictionary entry will appear when a dictionary is selected.
    2. 'd-=word' will only show Strong's in case the dictionary it is used is Strong, all otherwise.
    3. 'd-=word1%09word2%09word3' will lookup the tab delimited words beginning with the leftmost and using exact or no accent (if available) match.
    4. 'd-=Strong' will lookup not only Strong but also Hebrew/Greek dictionaries. Actually all dictionaries will be looked up except those whose abbreviations are in the active settings.mybible tabletsettings table entry for strong.lookup.exclude.list (default to all English/Bible dictionaries).
    5. In case there is only one dictionary where it is found, the list will no longer show.
  6. Better no accent dictionary word (if dictionary has it) support: switching between 2 dictionaries with different accent but same no accent is now possible.
  7. Editor improvements:
    1. Popup notes Full editor now supports images just like the Tag notes editor.
    2. Added Find in Page in Mini Bible viewer (Premium).
    3. Detect verses now included the following book abbreviations: Gn, Lv, Nm, Dt, Mr, Jo, Rv.
  8. File export (Premium) improvement: images under images and icons external folder are now properly exported.
  9. Support for Text-to-speech (TTS) for popups (Deluxe). The play/stop button is on the lower right. You can disable (hide the button) by going to Menu->Preferences->Popups then uncheck Text-to-speech.
  10. Support for dictionary lookup (Deluxe) on text selection for Kitkat and higher for popups, Search/Editor preview, Editor Mini Bible viewer, and Search/Editor split panes on the right. Note that the Display setting/preference Long tap popup menu should be checked.
  11. Horizontal scrolling (Deluxe) new preference: Repeat background into columns. When the number of columns is 2 or more and a background image is set in the Color Theme, you can check this setting so that the image will be duplicated per column. Please see the Display settings section.
  12. Dictionary lookup improvements (Deluxe):
    1. Dictionary lookup in... now properly supports no accent if the dictionary has the special field.
    2. Long tap Dictionary button for lookup new option: List dictionaries instead of using Main/Secondary. This is useful for Jellybean or lower as the popup menu is not supported.
    3. Dictionary lookup in... list will not auto close in case Dictionary as popup is checked.

Bugs Fixed in Version 7.4

  1. The Bible verse rule will fail if it is a replacement of empty string.
  2. Backup/Restore does not include verse list, reading plan, synonyms and other custom settings files.
  3. Insert book link in Editor creates an invalid link without book if the current book is different.
  4. Compare link is not working in Mini Bible viewer (Premium) of the Editor.
  5. Reading Plan (Deluxe) bug fixes:
    1. Multiple readings are always ordered by Bible books and not by original tracks like in M’Cheyne (e.g. day 1 should be Gen 1, Mat 1, Ezr 1 and Act 1; Mat and Ezr should not be reversed).
    2. M’Cheyne Aug 4 to Dec 31 should have Psalms first before Luke/John.
