How to Check Database Using SQLite Manager in Android

Introduction

In this article I tell you how to see your SQLite database, if you want to see the details. You can see your SQLite database in three ways.

  1. Using a command prompt in window.
  2. Using coding, to see details you can get using code in your project.
  3. Using SQLite manager.

Here I explain how to use SQLIte manager. To see details of your database you must use the following procedure.

Step 1

First, open any web browser and add to it the SQLite Manager add-on as shown in the following image.
