    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.

    This thread is circa 2011 - a lot of new options are out there. Anyone looking for this info on a current device would probably be better served by posting a new thread. :)

    Let me know if you have problems with the lock.
