How can I check what is stored in my Core Data Database?

I am making a app that relies on Core Data.
I am able to enter data in a textField and submit it.

I was wondering how can I check what is stored in the Database in terms of entries?

I am trying to make a detailView to my tableView and I am not getting any results. Now I am wondering is that because I am doing something wrong with my code, or is the data nto being stored properly?

Cheers Jeff

To open the sqlite file, you need a tool. I use a free tool called Liya (
