Accessibility Comments: 

This is a bit of a strange one, as strictly speaking I would have to say that it is inaccessible. However, although the app does not work with VoiceOver, I can still see a blind person using it.

As you will have seen, the basic purpose of this app is to provide quick and easy access to your music playing controls. For example, swiping left or right on the screen moves you between tracks, a swipe up or down adjusts the volume, and a double tap will play or pause the player. Of course, these are the standard iOS gestures, and there doesn't appear to be a way of replicating these gestures when VoiceOver is enabled.

So, this makes the app inaccessible, yes? Well, as I said above, I am not so sure. I can certainly imagine times when I might use this. For example, when my iPod is sat on the desk next to me, it might be quick easy to simply swipe a single button across the screen.

Oh, and there is only one unlabelled button, and that is to open the settings page. On the settings page you will find details of the various gestures that operate this app.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all 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.
