Accessibility Comments: 

Extremely accessible. Make sure to toggle Direct Touch On in your Rotor to type.
The only downside to this app is I wish it read the actual letters and not just weird dashes, but if you don't care that is fine.

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

If you e-mail an attachment it will need to be opened on a BrailleSense or BrailleNote. The reason is because it is either a BRF or a BRL file.
