Back in June I created a posted with detailed step by step instructions for using e-Sword for Android's Import function. The steps I presented showed how import modules from third party sites such as Bible Support into e-Sword for Android. 

Here is a link to that post:

http://www.biblesupp...ion/#entry43341

 

In hindsight however I was not clear enough about how to import modules that users have already installed in other versions of e-Sword into the Android version. The Android version of e-Sword uses the same module format as the Apple/MAC versions  and e-Sword for Windows 11,12 and 13. 

 

As a reminder the Apple/MAC versions  and e-Sword for Windows 11,12 and 13 use html formatted modules which have a module file extension that ends with the letter "i". 

Here is the list of the html module file extensions:
 

Android/Apple/MAC
 
Bible (bbli)
Commentary (cmti)
Dictionary (dcti)
Bible Reading Plan (brpi).
Devotional (devi)
Reference Library (refi)
Topic File (topi)
Lexicon (lexi)

Here is the easiest step by step method for transferring files to e-Sword for Android from other installations of e-Sword

Step 1: Set up a free Cloud at Google Drive from the device you want to transfer the files from.
Step 2: Once the drive is set up upload the module files to the drive. You can create directories on the Google Drive for the different modules types such as one for bible modules, another for commentary modules etc.
Step 3: On your Android device goto Google Play and Download the Google Drive App onto your Android device
Step 4: Open the Google Drive App and login to the Google Drive you previously created
Step 5: Once you are in your Google Drive locate the modules you previously uploaded
Step 6: Each file on your Google Drive will have an icon that has a stack of three black dots, tap the dots to opens a menu that will display options for the file. Find download on the menu and tap it to download the module on to your Android device. 
Step 7: Once you have the file or files downloaded onto your Android device, close the Google Drive App. The downloaded files will be and the Android downloads folder on your Android device
Step 8: Open e-Sword for Android and then tap the three line menu icon to open e-Sword for Android's menu.
Step 9: Find the Import feature on the menu and tap it to open the android downloads folder and located the module or modules you downloaded from your Google Drive tap each file to import it into e-Sword for Android. Once you are done importing the files close menu
Step 10: To find the imported modules for example a bible or bbli module tap the bible option (bbl) at the bottom of e-Sword for Android and the list of installed bible modules will appear including your newly imported module. 

Note: the steps above can also be used for importing modules onto an Amazon Kindle Fire Tablet

Hi Tj,

I've just recently downloaded a raw bbli file and imported it into my e-Sword for droid (I hate to say this) without going through the procedures you've listed above. So here is what I did:

  • Downloaded the file onto a flash drive using my PC
  • Banged in the pen drive onto my phone and and moved it into the Documents folder using the My Files app (that's a Samsung Galaxy phone app)
  • Then I opened e-Sword, and selected Import in from the menu (which open the My Files app) and went to the folder where the resource was, and tapped on the file, and "hey presto" it was on my phone.

Now admittedly, this happened a couple of days before you posted this up, so I'm not going to say what you posted as being unnecessary, simply because other brands of droid phones may work differently.

 

On a side note: I'm drooling about the idea of getting me a Samsung Galaxy Fold. If anyone got one, pretty please let me know by dropping me a line, and give me your thoughts on it.

 

Blessings,

Blessings,

I had not thought about having the modules on a flash drive because my first attempts at downloading third party modules into e-Sword for Android was done with e-Sword for Android run through emulation. The emulation is accomplished using Blue Stacks on my Windows PC, at first I had difficulty following the instruction Rick Meyers post on e-sword.net. After some trial and error I figured out the complete way to download modules from here on Bible Support. I wrote my post so everyone would have better clarity as to how to add Bible Support modules to e-Sword for Android. 

Thank you for posting the steps using a Flash or Pen drive those steps are also good to know

Thanks mate, that's really appreciated.

 

Now, to everyone else:

 

I recently made a purchase of a Commentary from e-StudySource.com, and downloaded it onto my PC, and the extension came out as a cmtx. I then downloaded, and not paying a cent for it, onto my phone, and that came with a cmti extension.

 

So, realizing what just happened, I went "Yippee," for all the reasons you can guess. So (and that is a very big "Sooooo"), I then downloaded download most of the resources I previously purchased  for my PC version of e-Sword on my phone.

 

In conclusion, this means that whatever resources you initially bought for your PC edition of e-Sword, you can download and install on your droid device. I think/guess the same may apply to your iOS and Mac devices. All you need to know is the product key, and that's not difficult to obtain from BibleSupport.

 

Trust you all find this information helpful.

It is a good practice to review the FAQ from the developer site. These discoveries are already discovered  :rolleyes:

All you need to install your e‑Sword android-16.png module is to enter your Email address and "Product Key" you received when you purchased the module for use with e‑Sword. If you do not have that information, then just tap on the "Recover Product Key" button on the popover that prompts for this information.

Rick Meyers, the developer of e-Sword, clearly says that the approved source of your Product Key is from eStudySource [ https://www.estudysource.com/ ] not from BibleSupport.com [ http://www.biblesupport.com/ ] as was totally incorrectly claimed by APsit190 in a previous entry in this discussion, in his remarks dated 13 September 2022.

Well, I just intuitively and syllogistically knew that, of which is like the skin on your nose. When you buy a resource from eStudySource, the product key doesn't come from anywhere else. I mean, seriously, I don't think that anyone is so dumb to think that it comes from somewhere else.

So, when it comes to Droid devices, there are oodles of them running around. Some are dirt cheep, and others are a tad more pricey. But which of these are the best? Well everyone has their favorite brand of phone, just in the same way I have my favorite brand.

 

So which of them is actually the best? In my judgement I reckon the Samsung Galaxy range of phones and tablets are the best. From a technological perspective of Smart devices, they actually are the leaders. Perhaps what really pushed them to the front is the Galaxy Z phone:

  • The Galaxy Flip, and
  • The Galaxy Fold.

So, why am I talking about this on this forum. Mainly because the Blog section of this site is, well, not working. But that's not all.

 

The core reason is because, particularly with my Phone, I can link it to my PC using a tool called "Phone Link," a Microsoft tool that one can link his\her phone to his/her PC. Now, this is really important because it means that one can exchange data between the phone and the PC, such as drag and drop files from the phone onto the PC and vice-versa

 

But that's not all! The one (I regard as) important thing is that of using e-Sword on your phone with e-Sword on your PC. Now that has to be totally cool.

 

The video below demonstrates the downloading and installation of resources for the Droid edition of e-Sword on my PC using Phone Link.

 

As you have seen that my phone is linked to my PC, and of how I used it in that instant. So, when it comes to which brand of Droid phone to have, and you want it to be able to interact with it on your PC, then this is perhaps the phone to have.

 

I think I might just have to do a video of how to set up a Galaxy Phone and link it to a PC.

 

Trust you find this information really helpful.

 

Blessings,
