    In my application, I am looking to access a media file (jpeg or mp3) from a web site and view/play it within the application or download into application's Document folder for offline viewing/playing.
    Any thoughts or ideas on how to accomplish this ?

    I do not have web site at present. Is Google App Engine the right way to go ?

    Is there a limit on how many files can be stored in the Documents folder ?

    Is there a sample app/code available for accomplishing this?

    Have you looked at the documentation and various samples that Apple provide for NSURLConnection?

    If you simply serving media, Google App Engine seems overkill. Amazon S3 perhaps?
