Hi camelCase,

Sometimes it good to search the forum before you ask a question. :sunglasses:

I know. I re-read my post and realized that I didn’t specify that I was looking for a free one. Sorry.

How to pick a file from SD card
Pick a file from SD card with the help of the Activity Starter. Precondition: a file manager app is installed on your device.

Hi Taifun,
Thanks for the useful utility demonstration but i seems to have difficulty using the solution provided.

In my case i have to read a csv file which is currently in download folder of my external SD card. I am able to browse to it using the activity starter but when it goes to code for reading the file it says file could not found.

After picking the file i am displaying the full path of file which goes something like: “file:///storage/sdcard0/download/myFile.csv”

This is the block which is giving me error:

File.ReadFrom
FileName:“file:///storage/sdcard0/download/myFile.csv”

the file component is not able to read files from the external sdcard
therefore you have to copy it to the internal sdcard and read it from there
you can use the file extension and its Copy method for that
