Accessibility Comments: 

While some buttons could be better labeled, most are and those that aren't can easily be figured out. Also, video controls appear and disappear when tapping a video sometimes befroe VoiceOver is able to read them all. The interface is a little sloppily arranged for VoiceOver users doing a swipe-through. Overall, though, all these issues are minor and the app is quite accessible and generally easy to use.
