This works in a Playground:

let url = NSURL(string: "")
let data = NSData(contentsOfURL: url!)
let image = UIImage(data: data!)

It is recommended that you do not do this in the "main thread" so as not to block the UI while downloading the image.

To save the image to disk, the class NSData has writeToFile methods for that.
