• The FTC has reached a settlement with two developers of mobile applications who created and sold apps, called “AcneApp” and “AcnePwner”, that claimed to treat acne through colored lights emitted from smartphones and other mobile devices. The apps were sold in Apple’s iTunes Store and Google’s Android Marketplace for $.99 and $1.99. The settlements bar the marketers from making health-related claims without scientific evidence, and require them to pay fines of $14,294 and $1,700. “Smartphones make our lives easier in countless ways, but unfortunately when it comes to curing acne, there’s no app for that,” said FTC Chairman Jon Leibowitz.
