There has been a lot of chatter about the roadmap and direction of Application Insights in relation to HockeyApp. Senior Application Development Manager, Brian Swiger, sums it up.
In Summary: App Insights originally shipped with a set of SDKs for mobile platforms that pushed telemetry data into the App Insights pipeline. It is these SDKs that are being deprecated in favor of the HockeyApp SDK, not all of App Insights.
