There are two ways to do this.

1. If you create a standalone app it won't be able to save the data 
within itself but you could easily have it save a text or binary file 
which it could open. There are ways to encrypt the file if needed since 
it would contain passwords.

2. Create a standalone which opens the stack containing the data. That 
data can be saved with the stack. This is the model that DreamCard is 
based on but you can duplicate the functionality yourself.
