Has anyone found a way to install e-Sword on a Windows 10 phone?  Had hopes that version 11 might offer a way, but haven't found it yet. 


Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)
 

"Defenders of the faith are inclined to be bitter until they learn to walk in the light of the Lord. When you have learned to walk in the light of the Lord, bitterness and contention are impossible." --Oswald Chambers, in Biblical Psychology from The Quotable Oswald Chambers.

Hi Tim,

e-Sword will not work on a Windows 10 phone because the it requires a separate run time files for it. About the only way e-Sword will run in a Windows Mobile Device (WMD) is it was written in C# using Xamarin.Forms. Having said that, e-Sword will run quite successfully on Surface Pro tablets and Surface Pro Book devices. Next year Microsoft will be launching their Surface Phones, and e-Sword (this is speculative on my part) could quite possibly run on them. That said, I am prone to think it wouldn't be really be very useful on these devices.

 

If you want to have e-Sword for PC on a mobile device, my recommendation is to get a hold of a Surface Pro tablet or Surface Pro Book. Best would be the Surface Pro Book, or Samsung's Galaxy Tab Pro (which has Windows 10 Pro edition).

 

Blessings,

It also worked on my Acer Iconia tablet, until the tablet took a powder.  I got a screaming deal on a Windows phone, and hoped that I would once again have a highly mobile copy of e-Sword.  Alas it appears it will never be.  Back to lugging a 17" laptop.

 

Thanks for the help,

Tim

See if you can get that "screaming deal" for a Surface Pro Book or that Galaxy Pro Tab. Both have a nifty 12" size screen. The Surface Pro tablet has (from memory) an 8" screen if you prefer that size. And if you are successful in getting that "screaming deal" for one of those devices, then you don't have to lug that 17" laptop thingy.

 

Blessings,
