I use it often and finally get used to most of the unlabeled icons... But still, problems occur when receiving all non-text messages, including voice messages, due to unlabeled "button". Let see how many users are now using it. Perhaps we can write to the team together.

OK so I went ahead (after enduring several frustrations I'll post below) and installed Line. The frustrations had to do with when getting to the area of where you have to check if you want to ad friends automatically, and allow others to add you, there's no OK button! So I had to swipe with three fingers up to get to the next page, and there's the OK button! On other parts of the registration, after putting in the email and password where you register your email to recover your account if you change device, there's no way I could find for Vo to leave the Password edit field!, thus without leaving the field, the Vo cursor wouldn't move to the OK or Next button to continue the registration. I did manage to somehow finish, but don't ask me how! OK now for the questions: 1.-The tabs across the bottom only say one of four but aren't labled; what are they? 2.-I want to chat or call someone on my Friends list; I double tap on the person's name, but then? How to select if you want to chat or call? A podcast on using Line would be very useful!

I agree with the previous poster. we should all contact the developer and have them continue to make the app accessible for all VoiceOver users.
