Category search

Help your users search for specific types of places with category search. Sample use case: You are preparing for a long drive and would like to find gas stations nearby.

Use the code snippet below to try this in your app.

- (void)performCategorySearchWithQuery:(NSString *)query {
    TTSearchQueryBuilder *queryBuilder = [TTSearchQueryBuilder
    [queryBuilder withCategory:YES];

    [queryBuilder withPosition:self.locationManager.location.coordinate];
    TTSearchQuery *searchQuery = [queryBuilder build];
    [ searchWithQuery:searchQuery];
