I was going to rate this as having problems but usable. However, I then tried to use the automatic song recognition, which promptly killed VoiceOver. The only way to get VoiceOver back working was to restart the iPhone, as no amount of triple clicking of the Home button would bring it back. If you avoid this feature, then other parts of the app are usable. First, however, you will need to get past the 4 page intro screen when first running the app - use the 1-finger tap and hold, and then slide your finger to the left. On the fourth page you will find a button which will take you to the app proper. When viewing the information page for a song, VoiceOver behaviour is inconsistent. On some pages it will read the first part of the content (which generally includes a link to a video), but not find the lyrics unless you tap directly on them. On other pages, the opposite is the case. Button labelling is also poor in many places. Despite all of this, I’m probably still going to rate this as usable, but don’t expect it to be the best experience.
