    During the episode, I showed how to use the Mobile Center API from Swagger, but made a mistake when creating the API token. Instead of GET /v0.1/api_tokens, you have to use POST /v0.1/api_tokens as only the POST endpoint returns the API token: https://docs.mobile.azure.com/api/#!/account/createApiToken

    I have a HockeyApp Account but can't Login zu mobile.azure.com as mentioned. Instead I use my Azure predentials.
