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.

  • @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).

  • 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.)

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.


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