can anybody advice what is the recommended directory to store files
generated by your application: audio files, video files or some

If the phone contains SD card, it is clear that files should be saved
there, but if there is no any external storage. where would you
recommend to save to?

 Depends what you're going to save there. If it's some vital data to
the application to work (i.e. SQLite Database, Preferences, etc.) then
you have to save them in your applications directory on the phone.

If it's some downloaded files, MP3s, Videos etc. then you can save it
on the SD card. The home directory of an app is /data/data/
<yourappspackangename>/ but you should use the context instead of
absolute path names.
