    Like the title implies, I'm looking for an app that will browse cifs/smbfs shares on any given wifi network you connect to. I want to be able to move word documents and the like from the sdcard to network shares, or vice versa, so that I don't need to carry a USB cable with me wherever I go.

    Also I'd also like to know if there's an app that would install a server on the phone to enable other PC's on the network to connect to my phone via CIFS/SMBFS so I can browse/modify the files directly on it without having to copy it to the computer first.

    es file explorer does this . Well you can connect to smb shares and move files back and forth . You just have to know the server ip .
