Congratulations, you have reached the MLCA Android Apps page.

The following app test versions should work on most Android phones and tablets. However, until we submit them to the Google Play Store, before you can install them you first have to let your Android device install apps from unknown sources. Usually you can enable this in Settings / Security or Settings / Apps. Here's more detailed steps:

  1. Open the Settings menu.
  2. Inside Settings, go to Security (or it might be called Safety and Privacy, or it might even be in the Apps menu).
  3. Find Unknown sources and make sure that it's checked in order to allow installation of apps (like this one) from unknown sources.

Once that's done, you simply need to click on the appropriate link below to download the app. Then hopefully you can just click on the downloaded .apk file and choose Install. Otherwise you have to open the Downloads folder on your device (I found it in the Apps list on my device) and click on the .apk file in there to install it.

If you want to upgrade the version already installed, at this stage you should uninstall the old version manually before installing the newer version.

None of these apps require any special permissions. They contain all their data inside the app and so they don't require Internet access to use them and they can be used offline.

If you try or use any of these apps and have suggestions for improvements, please email your suggestions and comments to SuledRJ (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks.

Matigsalug Bible

This almost-finished app allows you to view (the still in-progress draft of) the Matigsalug Bible even when offline. You can swipe left/right between sections and double-tap to view individual verses along with any footnotes and cross-references.

The Matigsalug Bible app is now in the Google Play Store so you can install it directly from there. (If you downloaded a previous version from here, you will be prompted to uninstall it first.)

Plans for future versions include:

  1. Allow the app to detect which verse you actually double-click on (it currently goes to the first verse of the section)
  2. Make the displayed entries more attractive
  3. Settings menu causes a crash on Android 2
  4. Animations for when you slide to the next section
  5. Hopefully make section and verse cross-references into live links
  6. Design a nicer icon

If you would like to try this same app but with an English Bible, try the Freely-Given.org Apps Page.

Matigsalug Dictionaries

This app allows you to search and view both the Matigsalug main dictionary and the student dictionary, even when offline.

This is the link to download the app (2.1MB, last updated 19-Mar-2014).

Differences between v0.21 and v0.20 include:

Plans for future versions include:

  1. Making the displayed entries more attractive
  2. Adding a heading field to show which dictionary the currently displayed entry is from
  3. Allowing you to tap on words in the displayed entry and then go find that word
  4. Animations for when you slide to the next section or next verse
  5. Handle verse bridges and missing verses better when swiping through verses
  6. Design a nicer icon
  7. Add an About Page
  8. Submission to Google Play Store
  9. Consider including (or downloading) the photos from the main dictionary

Matigsalug Student Dictionary

This simple app allows you to search and view the Matigsalug student dictionary, even when offline. Unless you have very limited memory in your device, or some special reason not to want the main dictionary, you should use the above app instead of this one—just disable the main dictionary in Settings if you want only the Student Dictionary.

This is the link to download the app (842KB, last updated 19-Mar-2014).

Differences between v0.11 and v0.10 include:
