Accessibility Comments: 

This app seems very accessible. A few things to note though on the home page as you are swiping to the right you will hear a button that's labeled white action button, this is a button that will bring up a share minue to share your results. Also on the symptom screen voiceover does not announce if the symptom you chose is selected or not but it does indeed select it. There's also a few buttons that say web image but those are not something that I use and most likely have to do with the websearch of symptems. Temperature readout on the app is also accessible when using the thermometer. When setting up the hardware when you turn your thermometer on your phone should detect it automatically.

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: 

Great app to alternative talking thermometers, tracking medications, etc. The thermometer is a Bluetooth hardware device that can be purchased from the website or they are also at target.
