Default Android app to share files on LAN?

Is there an app for older (Android 2.3.7) phones that I can have access to my files on the phone via my home wifi network? Anything you guys recommend?

ES File Explorer worked great for my tablet. (On KitKat anyway) And I've heard good things about AirDroid.

I thought Google was working on a native app for this purpose? Not sure if that ever came to fruition.

ES3 (file explorer should work on all android versions from 2.0 up... and there is an older version called Es File Explorer Cupcake that is meant for Android version 1.5-2.0.

I've never used ES as a file server (I know it has that capability), only as a client.
