Please see following write and read methods. When read the bytes and convert them to string, I don't see the same String that I wrote. I know its a basic file read question but how do I convert those bytes to same String as it was before I wrote it?

Thanks
Imad

Here's some useful advice, not just for Android, but for Java in general: Never, ever, use "String.getBytes()" or "new String(byte[])" - always be explicit about encodings.
