Accessibility Comments

The app behaves a little strangely in places, but it's still easy to use.

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


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

Other Comments

There are one or two unlabelled buttons, and most of the time as you flick through articles, the first paragraph of the story is read before the headline.
