New Version - v.13.2.1

MySword 13.2.1 is just a bugfix for Standard Verse selector OT and NT shortcuts cause crash.

MySword 13.2's major features are Bible book order option, Editor improvement, and other improvements.

Please note that only the Free version is available in Samsung Galaxy Store and Amazon (also previously in Google Play) 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.

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!

Bugs Fixed in Version 13.2

  3. The Word and eSword RTF text alignment center and right does not reset to left in the next paragraph when \pard is encountered.
  4. Dictionary Strong search icon (Deluxe) can't select search result.

  2. Verse Notes Editor improvements:
    1. Added prevention of verse To less than verse From when saving causing phantom entry.
    2. Editing phantom record is now possible and will correct the invalid verse To. Existing phantom records still can't be shown though as the verse range is invalid.

    1. Videos can be embedded with a link for external video player and full screen.

    3. Other types are embedded as links. Note that MS Office can't open office files as it requires them to be read-write but Google apps can.
    4. Note that inserting a very large file is limited by the memory available to MySword.
