I set up SharePoint Stand-alone farm in a machine within organisation where DNS configuration is not control by us.
So is there anyway we can skip this DNS or any workaround in SharePoint APP environment setup?

Yes, instead of modifying DNS settings, you can update your local
hosts file located at
In this file you need to put your app host url and IP address. For example
Usually you put your localhost address and that's good for development. So the browser, when opening your app with address
http://app-f75ce1e9bc1ac8.myapp.com will use your local SharePoint.
Don't forget to disable loop back check also.
