Accessibility Comments: 

Unfortunately, this app is not very accessible at all. On the iPhone, there are 5 unlabeled tabs across the bottom of the screen. When using the VoiceOver left/right swipe gestures, it remains unclear what items a person has pinned on their boards. It appears as if the content is laid out in some kind of table, and VO seems to read words from left to right, skipping over certain elements. Exploring the screen by touch doesn’t yield better results either. The app also uses a tap and hold gesture to allow users to quickly repin items, which is not accessible with VoiceOver due to the use of graphical icons which only appear while your finger remains on the screen. Also, when looking at the profile of someone you follow, the button to unfollow individual boards is reported by VO as selected, even when it has not been pressed. When run on an iPad, the app seems to have the same issues, except that the unlabeled tabs are replaced with a menu that VO does read.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some accessibility issues with this app, but it can still be used if you are willing to tolerate these issues and learn how to work around them.
