Android SDK API doc and styling

We now generate the Android API doc automatically, it should be linked to from docs.blockstack.org. Also, it would be nice if we can get it styled to match our Javascript docs.

How will collections be integrated on mobile?

For Android, the current proposal for collections (read-only across apps) will require each app to provide a sync adapter to integrate with contacts, calendar, … apps. Users have to install these sync adapters for each Blockstack app, in addition to the their preferred Android app for the corresponding collection. How does it work on iOS?

How can app publishers create their own collection?
