The android app in the link above does not work quite the way you might want.  What it does is allow the android device to SEE the screen from the Mac but you cannot remote control the Mac.  Also the Mac has to turn on AirPlay which is not automatically enabled.

To make it really there is is NO remote control app which will allow you to control an iOS iPhone or iPad but if you want to control an Apple iMac or MacBook then you can use Remote Desktop software.  You have to install a program like TeamViewer on the Mac and the partner app on Android.

It sounds like you need a remote, rather than a full screen share type of control.
