@gollum,
You mean smartphone...not cellphone. Cellphones just dial numbers but do not access the Internet.

Basically, the answer is No. Those Apps are written for a device that uses a different operating system and designed for small screen interface of smartphones. It's a case of fish and fowl.

@Ragman,
But there are apps written for the computer. App Up is one site I've used.

@gollum,
There are also Android and IOS emulators that will run on a PC (well actually the IOS emulator will only run on a Mac).

Depending on what you want to do you have several options for Android emulation on a PC
