Can mobile apps teach babies letters and numbers

Can a mobile app really teach a baby to recognize letters and numbers?
Not according to an advocacy group that filed a complaint today with the Federal Trade Commission.
   
The campaign for a commercial-free childhood says two developers of popular baby apps -- Fisher Price and Open Solutions -- are trying to dupe parents into thinking their online games make infants and toddlers smarter.

Fisher-Price hasn't commented on the complaint.
But Open Solutions, says it agrees that electronics aren't a substitute for human interaction.
