Accessibility Comments: 

This app was not accessible at all initially, however the developer has been very receptive to feedback and has now made all of his apps accessible to Voiceover. They include Learn That Play, a music looper that supports Apple Music streaming,
Learn That Remix, a high quality pitch and tempo changer, and Ticker, a metrinome. Expect this app to continue to improve. There is no Apple Watch App as far as I know, however you can record using the microphone on the watch. The app respects your audio settings and doesn't automatically switch to the ear piece. You will hear voiceover in your recordings, and the Magic Tap works for playing or recording, even from the lock screen. These are features I specifically requested that were implemented for us in this build.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

The ability to change quality with a button that toggles through low medium and high right on the main screen along with an estimate of the time available for recording on your device is very cool! and the ability to move through a recording with a slider is also nice. It's a nice compromise between simple and deep. One surprise is the orfan recordings button under settings that gives you the ability to recover a recording from the cloud by date if it didn't save properly. I also appreciated not having to choose to save a recording. Options appear on the rotor to preview your recording, share it, change the name, or "evict it from your device" and store it in the cloud. Not all of the options are obvious, so keep playing. No ability to append to or mark up a recording yet. Still a great app, especially with the automatic recording feature.
