Accessibility Comments: 

This appears to be fully accessible. It is a bit weird to use since it has its own speech engine that will run along with your VoiceOver. Contains quite a few useful features that some will want to use. For being FREE it is not a bad little swiss army knife of tools that one can use on a daily basis.

VoiceOver Performance: 

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.
