Read file from Internal Storage via FileInputStream

The file in Internal Storage can be read using read() method of FileInputStream class.

Further work on last exercise "List the saved files in Internal Storage"; once any item in the ListView of saved files is clicked, the file will be opened using FileInputStream.read(), and the content will be displayed in a custom dialog.
