I use the free version of Documents To Go to open Excel and Word files on my phone, but I was disappointed when I tried to open a CSV file. The only app I have that responds to the Intent for opening a CSV file displays it as plain text.

Does anyone know of a good free app for viewing CSV files in a grid/spreadsheet layout?

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:

If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

And, boom. A whole slew of essentially one-line answers with little information, and they just keep coming. This is why we don't like requests for app recommendations. – Al E. Sep 20 '14 at 22:45
@AlE.My points on this SE site don't matter to me, but I'm curious why a legitimate question asked almost 4 yrs ago would cause you to downvote (comment and downvote activity at the exact same time == likely correlation). IMO, StackOverflow and the whole SE network are being horribly affected by what looks to me like an obsession with negative responses (downvotes, votes to close, snarky response). – Rich Sep 21 '14 at 5:38
Focus changes I guess. Al is one of our most active "hunters", helping us to keep the site clean. I was no member back when this question was asked, so I cannot tell whether it was on-topic then. // Nevertheless, it's off-topic now according to the rules. But if you're still (or again) on the hunt for that office app: be welcome to take a look at my list of Office Suites and Text Editors (Al: No, I won't make that an answer ;) Instead, I'll throw in my VTC as well.) – Izzy Sep 23 '14 at 16:24

Simple Spreadsheet is freeware and lists import/export of CSV as a feature.

Shead Spreet Lite also has similar features.

In the non-freeware category, see CSV Viewer and AndrOffice

Documento - office viewer can open and view CSV files. I believe it costs $1, though it can open other files as well.

Please stop using txtspeak. "u" is not a word, it is "you". – eldarerathis May 17 '12 at 13:31

I recommend the Documento Office app. Very good app for opening a .csv file and the price is worth it.

I use CSV Editor. Its about $1.50 and works well.

The OP asked for a free app – THelper Oct 10 '12 at 19:26

Data Bee is the best. It can handle large files without problems. I has been using it for so many years.
