Have some fun with your gullible friends and make them think your phone comes with a built-in Solar Panel that allows you to charge your phone.

It uses the intensity from the front-facing camera to detect how much "sunlight" there is and shows the charge amount. Put your hand over the solar panel (and our little secret: the camera sensor as well) and let your friends be awed by the drop in charging power.

Note: This app doesn't actually charge your phone!

Release notes:
Added authentic charge sound and live tile.

This is where messing with your friends began.

    Great app but seems to not work very well on cloudy days and indoors. That needs to be fixed.
