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 or light 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:

Now uses the Phone's Light Sensor for a much improved experience! Only shows charging when charge level is big enough.

Added authentic charge sound and live tile.

v1.0
This is where messing with your friends began.

    Love it! Attention to detail amazing. Gives sound like you just plugged it in. Battery icon in tray toggles showing the plug. Great job!

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