It's not unusual for an app to make claims about improving intelligence. There are dozens, possibly hundreds, of apps on the iOS App Store that claim to have cognitive benefits. Classical Music for Babies is different from the majority of those apps, though. As the name implies, Classical Music for Babies is geared towards letting children experience what's commonly referred to as the Mozart effect.
This effect, first described in a 1991 release by Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis, is purported to improve any numbers of brain-related activities in children under three. The idea is that the complexity of Mozart's music helps the brain to relax and regain its focus. For very young children, this would lead to overall increased brain activity. With the goal of helping children experience the effect, Classical Music for Babies comes loaded with dozens of different songs. In total, there are twelve individual compilations of the musician's work. All that you need to do is play a song or a set of songs for your child. (more...)
