Android Solar Charger

An app on Google Play is proving to the world that the vast majority of Android users fail to read the description of an app before downloading it.
The Solar Charger app for Android claims that it can charge your phone just by leaving its screen out in the sun. If that sounds too good to be true, that's because it is!

According to the app developer, that's the whole point: people need to read the description of their apps. If they don't, it's their loss.
The description of the Solar Charger app begins innocently enough: "Go green! Charge your phone with the power of the sun! Start this application, put your phone in a well lit place and watch your battery charge using the solar panel."
