If you are that desperate to do bioinformatics on the go, I think you'd have better luck getting your phone to remotely access a real computer that handled all the work. I have no idea how to do that, it might be that it's really hard to do securely.

You definitely cannot use them on an iPhone (not without jail-breaking it at least). Android is technically a linux distro, but it is made with libraries built for mobile hardware, so you'll probably run into a lot of difficulties.

Android will need to be rooted and something as simple as a shell script could get insanely complicated to implement if you run into problems with basic building block binaries (like cat and head). This is a ton of effort with no returns, as you'll be reinventing heavy duty software to use more of lightweight machines. Plus, every time the phone gets locked, your command line would IMO react differently (by killing processes maybe) and you'll need to address a whole lot of problems that don't make sense getting solved.

MEGA X? No, it is a desktop application:

Modeller? Maybe via PyMol on iOS?

Chimera? No, it is a desktop application:
