SQLite is a great little database engine for maintaining all sorts of databases, but to work with them, you must have a database client. And when you need to create and manipulate an SQLite database on an Android device, aSQLiteManager is just the tool for the job. Despite its bare-bones appearance, this open source app packs a rather impressive array of features.

 

For starters, aSQLiteManager features a database creation wizard that makes it easy to create a database from scratch and populate it with tables and fields. The app can handle not only tables, but also views and indexes. The database browser allows you to view, edit, and delete records in the current table, while a simple SQL builder tool lets you construct and run SQL queries. It's also possible to save all executed queries in a dedicated table in the currently opened database. aSQLiteManager also makes it possible to execute SQL scripts. As you would expect, the app lets you back up the current database as an SQL script. You can then use the script to restore the database when needed. In addition to that, aSQLiteManager can import and export data in the CSV format. In short, the app has all the essential tools for working with SQLite, which makes it an indispensable tool for storing and manipulating data stored in SQLite databases on Android.

aSQLiteManager can be installed from F-Droid and Google Play Store, and if you want to support the developer, you can purchase the donation version of the app.
