Hi there. This is true. I just got through the tutorial and ended up making a partial YelpAccount struct and extension so my code was similar. Then I just passed the API key instead of the oAuth token. oauthRequest.addValue("Bearer (apiKey)", forHTTPHeaderField: "Authorization") You could/should still store it in the keychain as far as I know, but I'm new to this :) The calls work just fine with this small modification. Great tutorial! Adam
