Accessibility Comments: 

This app is mostly accessible. It has a few oddities which I have seen in other apps. But you can access most if not all content.
I generally rate an app mostly accessible if I haven’t tested it thoroughly to leave room for error.

One thing I would note about this app that I have seen in other apps is the courses tend to be listed in one line on the featured screen. The way I get Stalin’s this problem is simply double tap and hold until I hear that sound that happens when you double tap the screen and hold your finger. Then I lift.

If the app I am trying to get is the first app listed in the line the double tap and hold method isn’t necessary. If its the second then simply double tap and hold on the left side of the screen and then lift your finger. A few areas there are three apps listed in the same line. I am assuming if you would want the second listed then you would double tap and hold around the center of the screen. And for the third you would double tap and hold the right side of the screen.

As far as I can tell other things are very accessible.

You can also search on the search screen and this screen I notice the apps are listed one at a time so the only screen the double tap and hold on an area of the screen is necessary is in the features screen.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments: 

This app has a ton of courses with new ones being added all the time. the courses do cost. But they have pretty good weekly sales on two or more. Also I do believe there are some free courses as well.
