Add note to documentation about Content Experiments not available in mobile

Description

WageningenX implemented content experiments int their course, open reviewing the content in the mobile app, they noticed the content was not showing correctly. The group id was showing.

It turns out there is a bug that says that highlights this problem, MA-2951. When we told them about it, they recommend that we should add a note to the documentation about the incompatibility of content experiments with the edX mobile app. It is a valid point as they make a big effort to implement this feature, that later on had to be disabled due to the bug.

Could you add a note to the documentation?

Thanks
Emilio

How sad. I've removed the workaround.

The workaround is not valid anymore. The Mobile Course Available to ``false``. feature has been disabled. All courses are being published into mobile app. There is no workaround for this problem

I'm adding this note:

Due to an issue in the edX mobile apps, content experiments do not display
correctly in the mobile apps. Blocks created with Content Experiment
components display in the mobile app with a "Group ID" label. As a workaround,
you might consider turning off mobile availability for a course in which you
want to run content experiments. You can do this using the *Settings >
Advanced Settings* page, setting Mobile Course Available to ``false``.

Done
