No prior experience with eSword on tablets, will eSword run on the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2, Octacore, Andorid Marshmallow operating system?
Thanks for any help with this,
DW

Short answer NO, ESword runs on PC and Apple.  But there is a program call MySword. Just Google it. Nowhere near as good but it at least lets you have some bibles etc on an android system.

There is a method or a work-around that you sort of can (loosely described) "run" e-Sword for PC on a Samsung tablet. e-Sword is not installed on the tablet, but is actually run remotely on your tablet from your PC. In order to do this, you need to install a Remote Connection program on both your PC and Tablet.

 

My recommendation is a program called TeamViewer, which is free for the individual user.

Hi Stephen

 

When you say "you sort of can (loosely described) "run" e-Sword" care to expand on that.

Hi Stephen

Hi Dale,

Used term, "loosely described" simply because e-Sword isn't actually being run on the tablet itself, but on the PC, in that you are actually (by remote connection) using your PC via internet connection in where you could be quite literally thousands of miles away from where your PC is located. For example your PC in is Canada, and you're in New Zealand, which is over (I think) 30,000 miles away, watching the All Blacks slaughter the Canadian rugby team, and you get so upset at the way the Kiwis massacred of the Canadian team by (lets say) 98 - 0. So you're really distraught and upset, and need some Biblical comfort and consolation. So you decide to use your e-Sword so you can read your favorite version of the Bible. (Love the story?)

 

So the way you do it is by having that remote connection program e.g., TeamViewer (which I recommend), and you connect by either Wifi or (if its on your tablet) using your Mobile Data (sim card) to your PC and and from there you bang up e-Sword. What is happening is that you are using your Android Tablet as a host for your PC so that you can use whatever application (program) from it.

 

Trust that this helps your understanding of what I mean by "loosely described."

 

I hope you enjoyed the story I used in the exampleROFL.gif

Hi Stephen

 

Ya that's a real cute story about grown men running around in short pants. :D  Now if you want a real game you should check out hockey. There you have grown man skating around in short pants. You see the difference there right. :rolleyes:

 

I will have to look into getting an android tablet as they cost a lot less than an MS tablet and I only want it for one pgm, E-Sword.
