Folks, I apologize inadvance for being raher ignorant, but I need some help installing ZIP files (commentaries) I downloaded to my tablet.  I know where the files need to be put, but I'm not sure if I need to unzip them before or after putting them in the propery directory.  Also, I'm not sure if these files (downloaded from thie web page) are auto opening zip files or if I need to download and install a program that will open zip files.  Can someone help me.  Blessings and thanks in advance.

Hi Mark,

I hope this will work for you.

 

I'm not familiar with how to extract data from a zip file in an Android device having MySword. So with that in mind, this is what I do:

  • Download the resource onto my PC, and extract the file(s) onto my Hardrive
  • Plug in my Droid Device, ether phone or tablet, into a USB port on my PC
  • Then drag and drop the extracted file(s) from my hard drive onto my Droid device.

The beaut thing about your Android devices, is that Windows' File Explorer reads them as any other (removable) storage media. This makes life really simple when wanting to transfer files from you PC to Droid device, and visa versa. See Screenshot below:

I trust this is helpful to you,
Blessings,

There was a feature added to install modules via a file explorer in the Android device, to the correct place, even if .zip

 

What's new in Version 6.5
  1. Extract verses popup via Stats and other info menu (Info icon) used to display all the verses in the page using the current Bible module.
  2. Downloaded zipped (.mybible.zip and .mybible.gz) and unzipped (.mybible) modules can now be opened via File browsers/explorer and MySword can take care of copying the module into the correct modules path.
