To receive a copy of the Premium or Deluxe Complete Edition of MySword, please help us support this project by giving.

New Version - v.15.0

MySword 15.0's features include Current verse highlight customization, Highlight improvements and Reader's Edition (no verse numbers and other annotations).

Please note that only the Free version is available in Amazon (also previously in Google Play and Samsung Galaxy Store) while the one available from this website can be upgraded to Premium or Deluxe version. The website version can always be installed over the Store version by enabling "Allow from this source" for the particular app that will open the APK (Chrome or any File Explorer/Manager) for new devices.

If your device is not Google Play Store enabled or you can't download the app from Google Play, in your Android device's browser, click either of the download links below.

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.

Please also note that the latest version of MySword (MySword 11.1 and higher) requires Lollipop (Android 5.0) or higher. If your device is ICS (Android 4.0) up to Kitkat (Android 4.4), please download the older version MySword 11.0 below. If your device is Gingerbread 2.3.1 or Honeycomb, please download the older version MySword 9.1.2 below. If you still have Eclair or Froyo, please download an even older version of MySword 7.4 below.

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!
