Default Best app to access PC files FROM Android phone?

Hello!

Can someone recommend a good app for my new Evo that will allow me to access the files on my local PC with my phone via a wifi connection? I've looked quite a bit this morning, but most apps are set up to allow this only from the PC side of the chain...

Thanks!

I use ES File Explorer - Android
to access shares on my NAS over WiFi
Windows PCs have the same SMB protocol, so the access to PC shares is the same.

Free for personal use Teamviewer! And not just over Wifi.
Install the client app on your Evo, and the appropriate server app on your PC. Start up both, and away you go! Secure. No set up. It just works!

Tonido.

Also works PC-to-PC. Heard about this on the FLOSS (Free Libre Open Source Software) podcast. Works great.

1 more vote for locally ES File Explorer
The local/remote tabs make file transfers easy.

Teamviewer is a great remote access program but unfortunatly I don't believe the android version has file transfer built in like the PC version does, only remote access.
