Accessibility Comments: 

The accessibility of this app has grown leaps and bounds. It used to be just ok, but recently they've added in lots of functionality, and everything is nicely labeled. My only real complaint is that you can't watch streams in the background, so if you go to write a message to someone in another app, etc, you'll lose the stream and have to reopen the app. Even the chat works great!

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments:
