Accessibility Comments

I haven't had a chance to look at all the features of this app, but from what I have seen up to now it seems useable. There are a few unlabelled buttons, and some of the text on the screen seems to be buttons without being announced as such by VoiceOver.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most 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

Using this app, you can turn getting better or achieving your goals into a game. It has been designed for people recovering from illness, but I think it could help with general self-improvement, too. If you want to know what the rules are, go to http://blog.avantgame.com/2009/09/super-better-or-how-to-turn-recovery.html to read how the game has been created and how to play. Apparently this will become a paid app at some point.
