Did you read the blog post that Samuel linked to?

There are instructions on the different possibilites on Android.

Answering a bit the first message: use QtQuick Controls as much as you can for 
now. For now you'll only have buttons, sliders, a stack view, layouts, etc. 
You don't have more deep integration with the OS because is pretty difficult, 
so you'll have to add it manually on a case by case. For example, this blog 
post shows a really slick navigation drawer for Android:


The sizes where a bit inappropiate for a tablet in my case, so there are rough 
edges, but hopefully things will improve even more. For now you'll have to 
resort to rolling your own. I can't say for iOS, but on Android almost all 
applications that I use seem to use their own kind of controls. There is very 
little consistency, and users seem to not care.
