Yes, an application developer may write the program to use what ever connection method s/he may wish (depending on user permissions and IT Policies of course). Depending on the OS BIS and BES will go via Wi-Fi when available so apps that use BIS-B or BES connections will do so as well.
That said, the easiest way to write a connected app is to not specify any particular connection and let the device choose, in which case it will behave the way you describe Andooid and iOS devices.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
