Accessibility Comments: 

The only real issue with this app is that there are few places where there is a "back" button. For instance, when you're taken to your track list, there's no way to get back to your previous screen to, for instance, do more recording. For this reason, I would recommend NOT deleting the regular Spreaker app if you already have it or download it if you don't (appears still to be on the App Store) so you can view your track list there while still recording using the new Studio app.

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: 

I think that this is a great audio-only equivalent to Periscope, at least until the latter (hopefully!) adds this option, because of its ability to record live and its live chat feature.
