Accessibility Comments: 

I have used this app on both an iPhone and an iPad. On the iPhone it was largely accessible. However, VoiceOver did not appear to read all page elements when using the iPad version of this app.

On both versions, the on-screen keyboard is different from the standard one. While the bottom half is the normal on-screen keyboard, above it are three additional rows of numbers and symbols. These three rows of keys are not accessible with VoiceOver.

Because of the sheer volume and complexity of data that this app can retrieve, it can be a little daunting at first (perhaps more so for a VoiceOver user). However, don't let that put you off.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface makes the app very difficult to use.
