Can you use MySQL for seperate apps or programs other than the website?

Title really says it all, can I access using a program I am making on my computer?

No, remote MySQL access is not available on our hosting. You can only connect to your database here using PHP scripts on your hosting account and our phpMyAdmin installation.
