If you've got the debugger working, does it work to run to a breakpoint 
and work in the live runtime state?  Both Debug Probe and the editor 
should offer correct runtime-sourced autocompletion in that case, when 
working in code that's active on the stack.

Another idea, depending on what the android API is written in, is to 
make sure that it's also on the machine where Wing is running and on the 
path configured in Project Properties.  If it's an extension module then 
you would need *.pi files (either auto-generated by Wing or by some 
script you provide) but if it's *.py then a copy of it would probably 
get static analysis working for you.
