Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

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?

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. 2 days ago
@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 2 days ago

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.

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.
