File in the stack are in "the engine folder" and it's sub folders. This is read only.

You can store files in "the documents folder".

Check the docs for other folder options. 

I have a function "TheEngineFolder" that returns the engine folder on mobile and the location of the included assets when in the IDE. This allows testing using the same code.
