How do I read the file content from the Internal storage – Android App

I am a newbie working with Android. A file is already created in the location data/data/myapp/files/hello.txt; the contents of this file is “hello”. How do I read the file’s content?

Take a look this how to use storages in android http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage.html#filesInternal

To read data from internal storage you need your app files folder and read content from here

String yourFilePath = context.getFilesDir() + "/" + "hello.txt";
File yourFile = new File( yourFilePath );

Also you can use this approach

FileInputStream fis = context.openFileInput("hello.txt");
InputStreamReader isr = new InputStreamReader(fis);
BufferedReader bufferedReader = new BufferedReader(isr);
StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
String line;
while ((line = bufferedReader.readLine()) != null) {
sb.append(line);
}
