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!

What's new in Version 7.0

  1. Popup loading is now faster. In the old version, Bible popups are slower compared to Translators' Notes or Merged XRefs even for few verses, and worst for the Non-English MySword UI. Now even very long content loads faster.
  2. Long tap text popup for Bible now includes Compare verse to easily compare other verses other than the current verse.
  3. Editor Detect verses improvement: Sng, Zeph and Zech abbreviations for Song of Songs, Zephaniah and Zechariah were added.
  4. Notes and Journal summary charts available in Jellybean and higher accessible via Menu->About->About Module. The count and total size in kilobytes (KB) of the most recent 120 dates with new entries are displayed in a line chart. Below it is a Monthly line chart.
  5. Share Compare Bible (Premium) now allows you to select which translations to share.
  6. Parallel view (Premium) improvement: In non-paragraph mode, the column width can be adjusted via touch and drag of the top header only when the entire width of the table fits because the horizontal panning takes precedence over touch to resize. Touch-drag is better supported in Lollipop and higher.
  7. Reading Plan and Own Pace Progress tracking (Deluxe) (for Froyo [Android 2.1] and higher only)

    Reading plan compact

    1. Reading Plan

      You can create a reading plan with single track like from OT to NT or multiple tracks like OT, NT, Psalms and Proverbs; start any day; specify the number of days; and keep track of your progress.

    2. Own Pace Progress Tracker

      If you do not have specific plan but rather read the Bible at your own pace, you can also keep track of your progress and log the verses you had read for the day. Using the Bookmark labels to identify your tracks, you can easily add reading progress.

    3. Track the number of verses read per day per track as well as link the notes, tags with notes and journal entries written.
    4. Tapping the bottom progress information will give a summary with graph of verses read and notes written per day (for Jellybean and higher).
    5. Print the plan or progress.
    6. Calendar icon for Reading Plan added to:
      1. Bible button bar on top (rightmost)
      2. Compact Mode: Bible view Navigation Drawer and Custom buttons option for Top and Bottom

    A demo for non-Deluxe version is available for 30 days.

    See this article for more details: Using MySword Reading Plan

  8. Summary (Deluxe) improvements:
    1. Bible Preference Summary highlight: loading could be very slow for non-Bible content whose size exceeds 32KB so it is not automatically summarized but a message is just displayed.
    2. Popup (on demand summary): in case the size is very large (128 KB or higher for Bibles or 50 KB for others), a confirmation message is displayed if you want to proceed.

Bugs Fixed in Version 7.0

  1. Links within books do not work in some books.
  2. Module shortcuts on the Navigation Drawer does not work in Full screen.
  3. Detect verse bug: Psa 1-2, 5 will give Psa 1-2 and Psa 1:5
  4. When MySword is not running and you tap an unzipped MySword module, opening it via MySword will cause a crash.
  5. Extract verses on Book, Commentary and Dictionary views without modules will cause a crash.
  6. Summary (Deluxe) crashes in popup when there are any of the following characters in XRef Merge text .^$*+?()[{}\|
  7. Switching via Bible Preferences Merge adjacent Bible references or Horizontal Scrolling in Split screen (Deluxe) will make the header of all Bible views similar to the last Bible view.

What's new in Version 6.6

  1. Editor Find and Replace for both Plain/Wiki editor and WYSIWYG Rich text editor.
  2. New Help menu items: Mini User's Guide, Using Deluxe Edition (links to website).
  3. Added Pinch Zoom (Premium) in Search, preview, help and about module useful for print.
  4. Print content (Deluxe) for Kitkat or higher for Main screen, search results, preview (verse list, search view more, editor), word frequency, word occurrence, frequent word sets, frequent phrases, help and about module. Please note that there are no header, footer and page numbers in the print output. In Kitkat, there is no preview and you cannot choose the pages to be printed.
  5. New Search type: Similar for Bible, Commentary and Personal Notes; Similar title and Similar content for Dictionary, Journal and Book (Deluxe). Using word analysis, the most similar verses, titles or content to the current one are searched and sorted by the percentage similarity score (shown at the end of each item) from highest to lowest. You can also type arbitrary sentence on the Search box to look for similar title or content.
  6. New Stats and other info features (Deluxe) for Gingerbread and higher:
    1. Summary - display summary sentences only of the current page; inside the brackets is the rank and score (1 is normal sentence score) then followed by the sentence number
    2. Summary highlight - display the current page highlighting the summary sentences; the highest rank is given a stronger highlight color (search highlight color was used)
    3. Summary of clipboard - display the content of the clipboard highlighting the summary sentences

    Note: The summary feature uses word analysis to group similar sentences, get the centroid and rank them so the probable summary sentences are just extracted from existing ones, never simplified or combined and may not be very accurate. It is not intended to get the most important sentences or get insights from God's word but just to aid study. Please pray for the Holy Spirit for more revelation instead.

  7. New Bible Preference (Deluxe) for Gingerbread and higher: Summary highlight. This highlights the summary sentences in the main screen's content in place without using a popup unlike those in Stats and other info.

Bugs Fixed in Version 6.6

  1. Verse list select verse with specific Bible does not work if the Bible is different from the current one.
  2. K&D commentary as current module cannot be remembered upon exit and also have issues with search.
  3. Top footer link is not removed in Export page to file (Premium).
  4. Deluxe Frequent Word Sets / Phrases error in case of null Bible verse (e.g. Mark 15:28 ISV) and no Exact index created.
  5. Deluxe Horizontal Scrolling is no longer working after Chrome Android System WebView update to version 46 in Lollipop or higher.

Enjoy God's word even more!
