Accessibility Comments

This app is very easy to use with Voiceover. There are a couple of ambiguous button labels, but it's easy to figure them out. (For example: ico-updating for refresh") The descriptions of each program are read easily by Voiceover. My favorite feature of the app is background audio, which allows you to listen to the audio stream of videos while doing other tasks on your device.
