    There won't be one for the iphone system, or I guess other apps files.

    But there are a few that can open photos, documents, videos from the album and email.
    iOS is quite closed as far as searching around inside the file system.
    This I believe is to protect the system and make it more "fool proof" (and reading many posts on this forum you get an idea why it is good to be this way).

    There are iphone browsers for on computers that browse the iphone when connected.
    But you would have to jail break your iphone to really open it up to looking in the system; and should not be attempted unless you really know what you are doing.

    Or are you looking for an app to browser a computer over wifi?

    "best" will depend on the user.

    I like PhoneView for what I do. Of course I don't know whether it will be good for you...

    also ... there is a mini file browser now included in iTunes itself (scroll to the bottom of the app window).
