Accessibility Comments

everything seems to work from an accessibility perspective. It does sound like the app refreshes a lot which is annoying. I'm not sure if that can be turned off or not.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments

At the moment I have the free version so I don't know how the paid $9.99 version compares. If you purchase it, please post your comments here. I can tell you that those who used the streaming video league apss have a lot of current problems with this part of the app.

This used to be a decent app, but now, it stinks. There seems to be an auto refresh feature that cannot be turned off and it occurs every 3-5 seconds. When this occurs, the user's position is moved to the top no matter where in the app they might be in. For example, when reading a news article, the app refreshes every 3-5 seconds making it impossible to read more than the first few lines as it automatically moves the users position to the top and forcing them to reswipe to refind their previous location. If there is a fix, would like to know because I can't find any way to stop this auto refresh and my repeated messages to the gametime developers have been met with nothing but auto responses that solve nothing and closing of the ticket. Terrible app now and almost unusable now that the auto refresh has been implemented. Also very very annoying to have the double tapping noise repeating over and over again.
