Accessibility Comments: 

This app makes a sharp repeating clicking noise when the phone is level and placed on its side with the home button to the left. Dull clicks sound as the phone gets further from level. Voiceover speaks the number indicating the distance from level you are at, with 0.0 being level. However, it doesn't speak when the number changes, only when you touch it. The only button spoken is a single 1 which toggles between hold and release. Based on the app description, I suspect there other buttons which are not being recognized by voiceover. However, I still think this is a cool app and, at $1, its a lot cheaper than an accessible level.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.
