Hi,

I use e-sword on my laptop and am very excited about a lot of the things that I can do with it that I have not been able to do easily with my Quick Verse software.  I first purchased the QV software in 1998 and updated it every year up until the year that Lifeway bought it, but enough about that.

I have a Samsung Tablet that uses the Android operating system and I wondered if there is an e-sword version that will run on it?  I'm sure there are others who would love to be able to use it on their tablet when they are teaching, speaking or preaching.

If anyone has any information on this, I sure would appreciate it.

In my Lord's service,

Jim Reynolds

Hi Jim,

Your question has been asked and answered more often than I can remember. And the short answer is, no.

 

I've even gone to the extent of writing a blog about it on here, and many have requested for e-Sword to be developed for Android with no results for that to happen. Then in another blog I wrote a review about Microsoft's latest offerings in Visual Studio 2015  where I also mentioned the ramifications this could have with e-Sword's development (Click Below to read the review).

 

 

Perhaps none more than this particular topic, is one that pops up the most from time to time.

 

As to how to persuade Rick Meyers to develop e-Sword for Android, I really don't know. I do know, that its not really difficult especially with what Microsoft has done to Visual Studio 2015. The only mountain (well its more of a small hill) that needs to be climbed is to come to grips with C# (C Sharp). And if one is knows how to program with C++ and Java, then its a nothing to come to grips with C#, and then to get into grips with Xamerin. Watch video below just to see how this can be done.

 

 

When one talks about a Developers dream, and make a programmer to drool, this then has to be it! Including Josh Bond. Even the bloke doing the video is almost totally beside himself with sheer ecstatic joy and excitement to the point of drooling.  ROFL.gif

Thanks for the info.  I guess that I did not try hard enough to find the answer to the question.  I appreciate your thoughtful reply.

In His Service,

Hi Niobi,

In a begrudging way, I agree with you. That said, when push comes shove, it seriously has be like a bloke playing with Barbie dolls when it comes to using MySword in place of e-Sword. It just ain't right

Uh-uh.gif

 

Where on earth this comes from, I have no idea.

Actually, those MS Surface Pro tablets aren't too bad at all. (They have Windows 10 Pro on them.) And from my reading and understanding, they can do a pretty good job. They are quite a gutsy little tool to have.

 

The most interesting part about it, from my perspective, is that you can just about do anything and everything on it that you can on a Desktop PC, including using Visual Studio Enterprise Edition (seen VS demonstrated on the Surface tablet).

 

And while on that note, Samsung are putting out a new version of the Galaxy Note Pro running Windows 10. Whether that's in Home or Pro edition, or both, I don't know. How I know all about that? Well ...

  1. I read about it
  2. Talked to a mate of mine who works for Samsung, who's in the know of all of these things.
  3. Finally, its us Geeks who rule the world. Never ever forget that. B) :lol: :D

Blessings,

So is it now pretty much the case that e-sword will NEVER be ported to Android? 

I can get by with mysword but I also would love to be able to buy those premium contents like commentaries etc.

Regarding an Android version of e-Sword that is entirely up to Rick Meyers the developer of e-Sword he is the one who has created both e-Sword for Windows and Apple/Mac devices. 

If you have e-Sword for Windows, you can purchase the premium modules and then convert them to MySword format using a small program called Simple Bible Reader
