Yep, this is do-able. Have a look at this post on the forums: http://forums.runrev.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=8934&start=15#p43063 .
That's an example of an iOS app that downloads another stack from the internet and then goes to that stack. You have a different use case but the method of downloading files I use can be adapted to your purpose.

I can create the resulting URL to the images from the resulting XML, and set the file name of an image to that URL, looping through the list of images, but I'm curious as to what would be best practice would be to download these images in the background? Ideally I would like the user to be able to use the simulated swipe routines between the images.
