New Version - v.12.3

MySword 12.3's major features are Text-to-speech current verse is now in the notification drawer, and Better support for Apostolic Bible Polyglot (ABP) Strong extensions.

If your device is Google Play Store (Android Market) enabled, note that you can also download the stable older Free version (MySword 10.4) from the Google Play Store.

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!

What's new in Version 12.3

  1. Text-to-speech current verse is now in the notification drawer.
  2. Support for some USFM bibles with different header like Malayalam Indian Revised Version Bible from
  3. Copy in non-Bible modules will now only use Wiki text if Editor is not in WYSIWYG for text, otherwise text similar to Share will be used. HTML version stays the same though. Pasting in the Editor using the button will still use text so non-Wiki will not show formatting properly so use long tap instead.
  4. Better support for Apostolic Bible Polyglot (ABP) Strong extensions (please download the Dictionary ABStrong).

Bugs Fixed in Version 12.3

  1. Text-to-speech speaks Strong numbers.
  2. Android R (11) popup maximized has margins all around.
  3. Maps' Location info and People Relationship's Person info popups are not working and displays an error: Processing failed with error: ... LifecycleOwners must call register before they are STARTED...
  4. Module selection autocomplete long title is shrinking the column for abbreviation in Android Pie or lower.
  5. Deleting a Bible module will cause the Compare and Parallel options in the module selector to disappear but restarting MySword restores it.
  6. Interlinear BIB+ with no Strong (Morph only) causes wrong popup navigation and possible popup index fail.
  7. Parallel view (Premium) verse mode containing some modules like EasyEnglish and GW that don't have placeholders for empty verses (possibly caused by paraphrase in EasyEnglish merging verses, or variants in NT like Mar 9:44 GW) will have the verses out of sync.
  8. Parallel view (Premium) Text-to-speech freezes the screen for few seconds if the number of verses is high using Google TTS (Samsung TTS is fine though).
  9. Non-Bible Text-to-speech (Deluxe) freezes the screen for few seconds for very long content using Google TTS (Samsung TTS is fine though).

What's new in Version 12.2

  1. Module selection autocomplete improvements of additional options (tap the top left Gear icon):
    1. Show title - shown besides the abbreviation. This is per module type so it's possible to show titles for Bibles, Commentaries and Dictionaries but not for Books and Journals as the abbreviation is already quite long.
    2. Search include title
    3. Search highlight

    Module select preferences

    Again, to enable it, go to Preferences and search for autocomplete. Tap Module selection autocomplete and enter a non-zero number.

    Below we search for description that contains bere (for Berean):

    Module select filter

  2. Availability of Module selection autocomplete in Search for ease of selecting a module in a long list.
  3. Import notes and journal (journal import is Premium). This is useful for synchronizing content between devices in case both files were updated. Place the file to be imported in a folder other than mysword then use the Import journal/notes found in the navigation drawer (via top left button). Note that deletes are not synchronized, thus it can only import updated or newer content; also, embedded images are not imported.

    Below is an example summary log for journal import:

    Import journal summary

Bugs Fixed in Version 12.2

  1. Download modules with Modules path Split no longer works in Android 11 (R) and higher unless Old method is used.
  2. Bible count in the navigation drawer for Compact mode included the Compare and Parallel so it's excess of 2.
  3. Format (Deluxe): b, i, u, em, strong, sub, sub, small and big tags within a word will cause word count issue as it was considered word separator thus breaking a format length.
  4. Bookmark shortcuts in non-Compact mode always have 1 for verse number in case there is a label (Deluxe).

Enjoy God's word even more!
