Some apps can via a workaround, such as ES File Explorer and Quickpic. Others can't as they won't use the workaround.

Are there any specific apps or app types you're looking for?

You can use the My Files app, or connect the tablet to your PC and you'll have full access to internal and external storage.

Of which? ES and Quickpic? Both. ES is a file explorer, Quickpic is a gallery.
