It depends on how those apps look like.

In general the whole host filesystem is exposed as /var/lib/snapd/hostfs. In devmode you can run anything installed there (that is the root filesystem of your computer) assuming you set PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH and anything else like that to point there.

Best regards.
