Setting up your Mobile Service
After creating your Mobile Service in the Windows Azure Portal, you'll need to create a table named "Feedback".
Client Application Changes
In order to run the client applicaiton, you'll need to change a few settings in your application. After importing the project into Eclipse, open FeedbackService.java file. In the constructor method, change the <YourMobileServiceUrl> and <YourApplicationKey> to match the values from the Mobile Service you've created.
