Description of App

From the iTunes app store:

The powerful Burner app gives you real phone numbers on-demand for texting, calling, and picture messaging – with anyone on the phone network. Users around the world rely on Burner to keep the circles of their life separate and their personal numbers private.

Burner has many advanced features, including the ability to manage separate contacts, greetings, notification settings, colors, and photo backgrounds for each line. You can keep Burner numbers as long as you want, or delete them any time.

Burner Connections is a revolutionary platform that connects your phone number directly with apps you love, like Dropbox, Slack, and Evernote. Do things that were never possible with phone numbers before: automatically save picture messages and voicemails to Dropbox; route messages to your team on Slack; share audio content to Soundcloud; build an Evernote-powered SMS-bot; and more.

Now you can subscribe to get premium lines featuring unlimited calling, texting, and picture messages, and you never have to worry about forgetting to renew.

A few of the many things our users love to use Burner for:
* work and customer calls and texts
* dating and meeting new people
* buying and selling things online
* sales and marketing, conferences, PR
* car dealers, mortgage brokers, and other salespeople
* side businesses and projects from bands to etsy shops to food trucks
* texting with students
* startups and small businesses

Featured in Wired, the New York Times, TIME, Engadget, and many other media outlets, Burner is known for its best-in-class design, quality, and functionality.

When you use a Burner number, the people you call and text will see only your Burner number. Calls will connect to your primary phone number; texts stay in the Burner app.

Burner is free to download and free to try. Additional time and numbers are available by in-app purchase or subscription. No hassles; no carrier contracts.

Accessibility Comments

This app can be a bit strange when flicking about, as it likes to put you on a reminders screen. While most of this app can be used by flicking, there are some parts that you have to use by exploration. When in the menu screen, there are some buttons at the bottom of the screen which work like tabs, but these are not labled, but you can figure out what does what easy enough.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.
