the buttons are labeled, and you can figure them out: most of them say 'nav-' and then whatever you need. I couldn't get the quiz function for work properly, but all the sounds are findable and work well.

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

I don't know if I'd agree that it's the 'ultimate'... but I learned $2.99's worth of interesting information anyhow. Unfortunately (and somewhat unprofessionally I'd say) their help link takes you to their facebook page.
