Are you simply not going to consider doing a mobile version of SS for phones, say android?
No, I consider it often. I just do not have any current project. There may eventually be one. There isn't one right now.
I read and understand your position as to why you have been "faithful" (poor word choice, perhaps, but can't think of a better adjective) to MS
Platform vendor is not really a factor in my considerations. The main issue is time. A new project would require a lot of time. Right now, I have more work to do than time to do it, so taking on a new project is not likely. There may come a time when I decide to replace some of the work I am currently doing with work on a new project. I don't really know.

Hello,
Does anybody know how to convert SS modules to MySword (Android App)? The app itself does much of the same that say, SS, E-Sword, TheWord would do, only in a phone/tablet format. Not quite as powerful (are they ever?), but still very useful when I'm on the go. I know that E-sword and TheWord have been able to be converted to MySword, so I am hopeful for SS as well.

How about seeing Brandon's answer above?

Besides I have MySword. It's fine. But I would recommend MyBible for android. Far & away superior to MySword, in my opinion, and for having used both for Bible Study and in a church setting.

Brandon,
Do you know if microsoft is pursuing a paired down version of windows for cell phones (not the old one from pre Win10 days)? I heard it was. If so, perhaps porting SS to it may be more achievable with minor adjustments.

No, Windows Phone is dead. Back when Windows Phone was something Microsoft was promoting, I wrote a small Bible app for it, but I never finished it, because it was obvious that Microsoft was going to lose the mobile phone platform war. Like any non-Windows-PC project, it would be a completely new project, there is no way to take the SwordSearcher code base and use it on a mobile platform. It is simply not possible to recompile it for another platform.
