I am new to iOS programming and the JSON library. I am attempting to get the value of the status as returned from google (shown below)


        NSDictionary *dictionary = [responseString JSONValue];
        NSString *status = [[dictionary objectForKey:@"status"] stringValue];

Here is what I thought would work but it crashes. I'm getting very confused on the proper use of the JSON library.


{
   "results" : [
      {
         "address_components" : [
            {
               "long_name" : "Walton",
               "short_name" : "Walton",
               "types" : [ "locality", "political" ]
            },
            {
               "long_name" : "Boone",
               "short_name" : "Boone",
               "types" : [ "administrative_area_level_2", "political" ]
            },
            {
               "long_name" : "Kentucky",
               "short_name" : "KY",
               "types" : [ "administrative_area_level_1", "political" ]
            },
            {
               "long_name" : "United States",
               "short_name" : "US",
               "types" : [ "country", "political" ]
            }
         ],
         "formatted_address" : "Walton, KY, USA",
         "geometry" : {
            "bounds" : {
               "northeast" : {
                  "lat" : 38.88926600000001,
                  "lng" : -84.58743790
               },
               "southwest" : {
                  "lat" : 38.84176990,
                  "lng" : -84.6405750
               }
            },
            "location" : {
               "lat" : 38.87561940000001,
               "lng" : -84.61022129999999
            },
            "location_type" : "APPROXIMATE",
            "viewport" : {
               "northeast" : {
                  "lat" : 38.89299050,
                  "lng" : -84.57820650000001
               },
               "southwest" : {
                  "lat" : 38.85824410,
                  "lng" : -84.64223609999999
               }
            }
         },
         "types" : [ "locality", "political" ]
      }
   ],
   "status" : "OK"
}
