Accessibility Comments

The biggest issue with this app is that in some instances, such as the tutorial, and when adding a new TrackR device, swiping through the screens isn't possible, so you have to drag your finger around to find things.
The next is that in the device screen, the app seems to "refresh" occasionally, causing VoiceOver to lose its place and jump to the back button.
Also, the battery indicator is inaccessible.
On the device screen, there are at least four buttons. The back button, a button that VoiceOver simply reads as "dots", a button read as "Trackr", and a button called "active" or "inactive".
I believe the "Trackr" button is an image, but it has been labelled. Activating it will take you to a screen where you can select what kind of device the Trackr is tracking, such as "keys", "wallet" etc.
The "dots" button opens a screen where you can see all of your TrackR devices, change their settings, or add a new TrackR device. The unlabeled buttons after each TrackR will open the settings screen for that TrackR.
Double tapping the "active" button will sound the alarm of the current TrackR device.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.

Other Comments

I believe that this app is very usable as is, but it would be nice if these issues could be fixed. I bought a ten-pack of these devices to give to my family for Christmas, and I now have one on my keys and one in my wallet.
