Since I submitted this review in 2010, this app has been updated with varying degrees of accessibility. Shortly after I submitted, the app was redesigned and contained more of a web based interface. However, it was difficult to use with VO as one could never tell if the content would change or if a link you clicked on had any effect. I contacted okcupid and they said they would look into adding voiceover support again. Accessibility has gotten better over the last few versions. As of the latest version which is version 4.1.1, the app now has a menu based system where you can select where you want to go. However, there are parts of the app that are frustrating to use, in particular the subscription section where you can subscribe to a list. I'll try to edit this review accordingly.
