API Token vs API Key (Legacy API)

Hi there,

I currently have an Ionic 2 app, with a file “.io-config.json” using “api_key” of my Ionic.io app. Should I be using API token instead? How should I update my “.io-config.json” file?

Also, what is the purpose of the API Key in the “.io-confi.json”? Is it used to generate push tokens when we register using Ionic.Push?
