Accessibility Comments

Recent updates appear to have fixed some of the previous problems, and as a result you can now access most of the app with VoiceOver.

Button labeling is poor in places, but at least VoiceOver will now read the timeline (although I do find that VoiceOver will occasionally stop reading tweets as you swipe through the timeline ... very odd).

I've only used this with Twitter so far. I wouldn't recommend it over the more accessible options that are available, but there are some encouraging signs that it's heading in the right direction.

It's good to see in the release notes for the latest update that HootSuite is joining the accessibility party!

Here's what they say:

Improved accessibility for Voice Over in many places. We are still improving more areas of the app for accessibility

I've not used past versions of this app, so I would be interested to hear from any users who can let us know how much better things are now looking.

I just downloaded the latest version of this and am pretty happy. The stream feeds read a little wonky (date/time before content), but all and all it's a pretty user-friendly interface. All buttons seem to work. Granted, some are a little quirkier than others, but Voiceover reads the gist of it. So, for people like myself who manage multiple social media networks for personal and business use, it's a pretty handy app to have. Here's hoping they add Google + for the next update on the free version!

I love this app, but am having trouble with facebook. My posts don't show up, and I get an error whenever I try to like a post. Have re-added my facebook account and emptied the message cashe with no success.

All facebook problems have been solved. The trick is to delete Hootsuite and Facebook from one another and then add facebook again. I had to get the Helpdesk people to do this as HS isn't jaws friendly, and deleting a social network in the app only deletes it from the iPhone.

Much of the same that is written here still applies. the App get's about a 6.5 out of 10 for usability. If you have to use it you can get by. But if you have a choice. Pick something else.
