 // Create an unauthenticated client:

var places = PlacesClient()
// or provide credentials to create an authenticated, full-fledged client:
var places = PlacesClient(appID: appID, apiKey: apiKey)

 // Create your query and set its parameters for your search
let query = PlacesQuery()
query.query = "Paris"
query.type = .city
query.hitsPerPage = 10
query.aroundLatLngViaIP = false
query.aroundLatLng = LatLng(lat: 32.7767, lng: -96.7970) // Dallas, TX, USA
query.language = "en"
query.countries = ["fr", "us"]

// Search Places
places.search(query) { (content, error) in
    if let error = error {
        // do something with error
    } else if let content = content {
        // do something with content["hits"] to access the hits
    }
}
