Ho do I read a text file on Android (and iPhone)?

For our game, we save level data in XML. The files are serialised classes, and the system works fine on PC using C# classes such as `XMLSerialiser` and `TextReader`.

Now on android, I can't figure out how to get it to work on Android. The first problem seems that the files are simply not found (I have located them in `Assets/Levels/`, and just for interest sake, I also tested `Assets/Resources/Levels/`).

Any ideas?

I know about TextAsset, and that I can get a string through it via Resources.Load, which I can then parse (!!!). I am of course on the lookout for a method that works with C#'s parsing tools.

I ended up using the TextAsset, and then use a chain of readers etc., to get the serialized object. Here is the code for anyone interested:

//xml is a string containing XML (potentially from a TextAsset).
public static T DeserializeString<T>(string xml)
    XmlSerializer serializer = new XmlSerializer(typeof(T));        
    StringReader stringReader = new StringReader(xml);        
    XmlTextReader xmlReader = new XmlTextReader(stringReader);        
    T obj = (T) serializer.Deserialize(xmlReader);


    return obj;
