Accessing A77-II manual settings when controlling the camera via PlayMemories Android app

When I connect the camera to the phone it locks its own controls ("Controlling with smartphone. You cannot directly operate this device"), but the app on the phone doesn't let me do much. It seems that even changing shutter, aperture and ISO is not possible (let alone things like enable wireless flash).

Is this app in remote control mode nothing more than a glorified shutter release with live-view? Any more capable alternatives?
