Description of App

AT&T Navigator transforms your iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G or iPad into a voice-guided GPS navigation system with turn-by-turn driving directions and other features that are just as helpful for when you are driving across town as they are for driving across the country. A subscription charge will appear on your AT&T wireless bill. You can choose between monthly or annual subscription options (details below).
AT&T Navigator is a GPS navigation tool for the AT&T iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G and iPad. It does not work on the original iPhone or the iPhone 4 on Verizon.

Accessibility Comments

The app is 99.999% accessible. Once you start a route, the route navigation page is completely 100% inaccessible. The good thing, however is you do get audible feedback turn by turn directions, so for that reason, it's worth the investment. If it weren't for that, I'd say don't get it.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Few buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface makes the app very difficult to use.

Other Comments

As stated below, I have contacted the developer, and they seem incredibly interested in fixing the problems with the navigation screen. They asked me what they specificly needed to do to make that part of the app read so that they could get things fixed very quickly. I told them I wasn't sure, but would check, so, if any of you out there know the ins and outs of this stuff, drop the developers a line and let them know, so they can get the ball roling on this.
