New Version - v.14.3.1

MySword 14.3.1 is just a bugfix and contained several fixes.

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.

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 14.3.1

  1. Show Highlights available in the Bible View Preferences resets upon restart.
  2. Tap word selects verse preference doesn't work on Parallel view.
  3. Download update doesn't work if port 4443 is blocked by ISP so default port should be used.

What's new in Version 14.3

  1. Download modules option (via Menu): Use default port - don't use port 4443 as it could be blocked by device or internet provider. When checked, the download MySword update will also use the default port.
  2. New Bible Search option available for Deluxe: Search range type. You can enable via Menu->Preferences. The range types are:
    1. Verse - the default behavior where all keywords must be found in a verse.
    2. Chapter - all keywords must be found in the whole chapter (index will be created).
    3. Verse range - all keywords must be found in the generated verse range index. The verse range can be based on any of the Alternate sources like default.english.hdgs.twm, BSB, ISV, LEB, NET (any Bibles with both OT and NT and titles/headings that break the chapters into topics or verse ranges).

    Note that chapter and range will only work when there are more than one keyword or double quoted phrase and only for Search types Standard, Exact, No accents (diacritics) and Prefix and exact (No accents). Quoted phrases cannot span multiple verses. Also, the indexes can always be recreated which is useful for changing the verse ranges.

    Example: search on NHEB for love self-control results in having 7 entries including Gal 5:16-26 using BSB as range source.

    Bible Search Verse Range

Bugs Fixed in Version 14.3

  3. Popup merged XRefs when annotations are shown: no space between poetry lines like in Psalms and Proverbs for Bibles that supports poetry formatting.
  4. Alternate Title source BSB may not show titles in some verses like in Job and Proverbs (e.g. Job 4:1, 5:1, 6:1, Pro 1:1, 2:1, 3:1).
