I did not encounter any significant accessibility problems with this app. The interface can be a little dizzying at first, but that is only due to the features of this app (it is a very comprehensive and powerful tool). Thankfully the button labelling is very clear, so that does make the app easier to navigate.
This app usually sells for $4.99, but is available for free until 5 February.
