put a / after the api key

let baseURL = NSURL(string: "https://api.forecast.io/forecast/\(apiKey)/")

I don't see any error in the console but on the debugger it says "nil".

My code would not get the information it needs from developer.forecast.io and the free calls is still 1000.

Thanks. That worked for me!
