Description of App: 

By Swiss Federation of the Blind

from iTunes store:
GPS orientation aid which provides distance and directional information to a selected point of interest.
Such a point can be an address from your address book or a point of a self-defined route.
The non-free version of MyWay also allows file exchange via the iTunes filesharing option.
There, you can also import files containing nodes in Open Street Map format giving access to hundreds of POI in the proximity such as bus stops or restaurants.
Thanks to VoiceOver, visually impaired and blind people have unlimited access to this app. We recommend to turn on speaking of VoiceOver hints.

Accessibility Comments: 

Works great; I was looking for a way to navigate cross-country over the unshoveled suburban tundra here and wanted something very simple. I have not yet figured out what all the vibrating is for exactly, but it's cheery. I could go for some more detailed documentation, but even without that, I think this one is a winner.

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.

Other Comments: 

I especially like that it gives distance to your target and direction via face-of-the-clock. Really nice. Careful:the paid version is $19.99 as of Jan 2012!
