Today To-Do: Clever Task Management

Category: 

Description of App: 

Today Todo takes a Zen-like approach to task management and has been designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind. With just the right amount of clever features to keep you organized (and happy).

Today Todo has been featured by Apple, made apperances in tv spots and received more praise than it was healthy for its developer's egos :)

Accessibility Comments: 

This app is totally unusable with VoiceOver.

The main problem is the use of custom controls and page elements. At times VoiceOver announces the presence of items on screen when they are not visually present or active. Some other elements (most notably the date selector) are simply not accessible with VoiceOver. Button labelling is also poor.

Even with some residual vision, it was a struggle to make much sense of what VoiceOver was telling me was happening onscreen. Avoid.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.
