Accessibility Comments

This app is mostly accessible. There are a few buttons that are unlabeled. These are easy to label with the two finger double-tap and hold gesture. For the information presented, the unlabeled button problem is worth a download. I like the information presented. Voiceover reads all the information, even the Wikipedia articles are easily read.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

No buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments

This may be worth contacting the developer to see if they would be willing to label the buttons. Shouldn't be a big deal there.
