Accessibility Comments: 

This app needs major accessibility work I have contacted the developer about this for example when using the browse screen you do not get documentary titles. I find the app to be slightly more accessible on my amazon firestick.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few 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.

Other Comments: 

You can search for types of documentaries and get titles and such but it can get confusing on your first try with the app I know it was for me using both my fire stick and my phone.
