Accessibility Comments: 

The app works well with Voiceover, but you will be doing a lot of page turning. Use 3-finger left swipe to go forward and right to go back. This seems backwards to me but is in keeping with VO functionallity elswhere in IOS.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

Google Play support responded to the original VO problem report on this app and fixed the issue. They may be open to further suggestions, but be aware that the first line of support may not even understand your questions. It took some persistance to get through to someone who understood and acknowledged the problem.
