Do you have a database, library or collection which you need to use on-the-go, even when you don't have web access? If you do, this is the application for you. Using CSV Lite you can easily search, sort and look through your collections when away from your computer. So start carrying your DVD and CD library, your book collection, your wine testing notes, or any other database, library or list with you!
CSV Lite works by reading CSV files, a file format which almost all databases and applications like Excel, Filemaker, Access, Bento and others can export to. To get the CSV files on your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, you can download the files the standard way using iTunes. In addition, you can also download CSV files directly from the web (e.g. MobileMe) or from FTP server; if you do this, it is a simple click of a button to update the file when there is a new version available on the server.
Note that CSV Lite does not allow editing of your database. See http://www.ozymandias.se for more information and screenshots. CSV Lite is free but restricted (only 1 CSV file with 150 items); buy CSV Touch if you need to be able to use more files and/or items.
