#import "GPHeader.h"

2. Setup Google Place API key

In order to communicate with a Google Places API, you must first generate your own API key. Please take a look at Introduction – Google Places API.

//Open "AppDelegate.h" and set your API_KEY

[[GPlaceAPISetup sharedInstance] setApi_Key:@"SET_API_KEY"];

3. Making a request & get Resonse

 CLLocationCoordinate2D location = CLLocationCoordinate2DMake(51.501103,-0.124565);
 GPPlaceSearchRequest *request =[[GPPlaceSearchRequest alloc] initWithLocationCoordinate:location];
 request.radius = 5000;
 [request doFetchPlaces:^(GPPlaceSearchResponse *response, NSError *error) {
        if(!error){
            if(response.status ==  GPRequestStatusOK) {
                // Access place results by below model
                GPResult *result =response.results[0];
                NSLog(@"%@",result.name);
            }
