This is a very simple and easy to use and appears to be very VoiceOver friendly. I have not seen any issue with it.

Unfortunetly, the existing problems with the articles sill persist in this new update. In some ways I find it a bit more harder to read. Now when I flick to the left and right to read the article at times I will get a click sound with no results. I have to tap on the screen to continue reading in the article. It is like you have to swipe up to be able to read on.
That is a shame. I can only hope that this issue will be fixed in upcoming releases.
However, at least they are up to IOS 6 and iPhone 5 compatible! ;)
What's New in Version 18.104.22.168
* Full support for iOS 6 and iPhone 5 screen size compatibility
* Bug fixes and stability improvements
I updated to the May 12 version on my iPhone last night. When I open an article, it seems that nothing but the title is available to VoiceOver. Anyone else try this?
I agree that USA Today is totally inacccissible with voiceover now.
Has anyone contacted the publisher? I have sent messages to them in the past and never got a response.
Yes, I can confirm that on my iPhone 5S running IOS 7.1.1 I am unable to use VO to access the body text of most articles in the May 12, 2014 version 2.5.0 of the USA Today App. I've submitted a bug report via email. If you haven't already done so, you can submit a bug report from within the app by going to Section Menu / Article Settings / Email Support / Bug Report.
What's New in Version 2.6.0:
Apple Watch improvements.
VoiceOver fix for articles.
Improved Facebook sharing stability.
