  3. This widget is only available to MySword app users who are Deluxe Plus Donors (MySword app is a full-fledge Bible Study Software).

      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.

What's new in Version 4.2 (15 June 2022)

  1. The Open in MySword (upper left icon) for Module commentary and personal notes is now better than Show in popup (lower right icon).
  2. New Heart English Bible (NHEB) and World English Bible (WEB) quotes updated to the latest 2022 updates.

What's New in version 4.1 (25 July 2019)

  1. New Heart English Bible (NHEB) and World English Bible (WEB) quotes updated to the latest 2019 updates. The Scriptures was updated from 1998 (TS1998) to 2009 (TS2009). Added also new topics: Grace, Instruction, Kindness and Understanding.

What's New in version 4.0 (7 March 2017)

  1. For Module Journal and Module Topic Default, the currently displayed topic can now be directly edited via Menu->Edit using MySword Journal Entry Editor (requires MySword 8.0 or higher), and upon exit the content is automatically refreshed. In the old version, you have to tap the upper left Icon then go to Full MySword, Edit the Journal Entry, press Back button to exit MySword, then manually refresh the content by going to the next entry then back.

Bugs Fixed in Version 4.0

  1. Selecting Green background shows blue instead of green.

What's New in version 3.0

  1. Journal, Book and Dictionary Module without Default Topic (no specific topic) now has NOT Randomized feature. This is very useful for multiple TODO or Lists in one Module and you can now cycle through the topics with ease if Randomized is not checked. Before (in version 2.0) it is always randomized regardless of the Randomize check box as it was not used.
  2. Added new topic: Hope.
  3. Material Theme for Lollipop devices.
  4. Icons are now Material Design compliant: smaller but simpler.
  5. Changed the default background from Green to Blue.
  6. Made the menu popup more compact by making the text slightly smaller but scalable through Android Display setting Font size, packing more menu items.
  7. Background and Text color custom Color Picker improvement: the hexa color number can be entered manually by tapping the text message with hexa color just like in MySword app.

Bugs Fixed in Version 3.0

  1. View content (upper left icon) of Module abbreviation with ampersand (&) like M&E does not work.
  2. Horizontal rule (HR tag, e.g. from Journal, Book or Dictionary) still shows the HTML tag.
  3. Share content with paragraph embedded in list shows as Wiki.
