Where do I find (complete) documentation on how to implement OSM in an android app?

Can you explain what you mean by "implement OSM"?

OpenStreetMap is lots of different things to lots of different people - maps, routing, statistical analysis, and lots more. What do you actually want to do?

Sorry, I meant basic map use, like viewing the map, storing the tiles, zooming in and out, centering the map on your GPS position, API key etc.

None of the android apps I've written involved any map use, so the matter is entirely new to me.

There is no definitive guidance on this. You may be better off looking at the documentation provided by the various pre-existing frameworks to see what will work best for your use case.
