Is their a way to access ethereum Dapps other than the mist browser. I was thinking along the lines of a normal browser like chrome. Also, as a sub question how are some Android and IOS apps connecting to the blockchain?

You can do that through Ethereum JSON-RPC.You have to use
eth_call - read from contract
eth_sendTransaction - send
transaction to a contract
you'll also need to have an Ethereum node started, most probably with
unlocked account to execute transactions from it. Which means you don't want to run it on public networks, but rather in local network. That's what Mist do for you essentially.

MetaMask provides
same API for browser based app, but requires an additional plugin to be installed into a browser
