Laravel 4 Library for calling http://ip-api.com/ API.

In contrary to all other packages wherein it requires that you have the geoip database in your filesystem, this library calls a free service So you dont really have to worry about downloading and maintaining geoip data from Maxmind in your own server.

Just install the package, add the config and it is ready to use!
