NOTES:
* Route Time = (Total Time minus the time paused) *

* The GPS information displayed by this app comes directly from your device's GPS. *

* To get the best GPS readings possible just set the apps Location Accuracy option to "Best for Navigation" (this setting uses more of your battery). *

* The location, speed and heading readings we received on our devices during testing were very accurate. *

* Our device's usually receive no GPS readings indoors. Outdoor use is highly recommended! *

* Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life *

Accessibility Comments

This is accessible and fairly easy to use.

The first item on the screen tells you the direction that you are travelling in. A double tap on the main screen will pause or resume the tracking. When paused, this first item will say 'paused'.

The next item on the screen is your speed. After this is the distance you have travelled.

The next four items are set out on the screen in a 2 by 2 grid. This takes a little getting used to, as VoiceOver will read the items in the following order:

  1. item 1 label (which is average speed)
  2. item 2 label (which is elapsed time)
  3. your average speed
  4. the elapsed time
  5. item 3 label (which is top speed)
  6. item 4 label (which is altitude)
  7. your top speed
  8. your altitude

Once you are familiar with this layout, the app is fairly easy to work with.

At the bottom of the page are five buttons. The labels are a little verbose, but are still easy to figure out.

I've not tested the camera features supported in this app, so cannont comment on their accessibility.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments

This is normally a paid app, but at the time of writing it is available for free.
