I just came across a few tools that may, with sufficient modification, allow full control via your Android/iDevice.

1. Install Orbot. (Tor client for android). Also install NR Inject.

2. In Orbot, do Settings> Select Apps> and find NR Inject. Then close.

3. Install in Node-Red the module "node-red-contrib-nr-injector"

5. In NR Injector app on Android, type in your Tor address...... which doesnt seem to work. Submitting patch to remove
