Added info to enable remote debugging in Android

the Chrome Dev Tools have a mirror option that shows your app running on the mobile device.
This is more than just a view - you can scroll and click from dev tools and it updates on
the mobile device. More details on Chrome Remote Debugging may be found here: [](
