Accessibility Comments: 

I have used this app for some of the minor things like burns and insect bite allergic reactions and it reads everything in a step-by-step process. No donation or *real money* is asked for of any kind, though I think there is a pro version that covers more things that probably is a paid version.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

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

Other Comments: 

I think this could also be put under the medical category in our directory as it is a health app. If you have an allergy such as to bees, nuts or maybe you have asthma or you get a burn: this is a nice app to have handy. When in doubt or for something serious, in the US, call 911.
