Accessibility Comments

This app is still usable, but not as accessible as expected.
For starters, there is a tutorial you have to work your way around.
Tap the Get Started Button at the top to start the tutorial.
It will ask you to choose your search engine. Here's your first accessibility issue. Although the search engine options are labeled correctly, the buttons are dimmed.
So, you have to toggle off VoiceOver, and for Google, tap near the middle left corner, for Bing, in the middle left corner, and for DuckDuckGo tap in the middle left corner about 2 to 4 inches from where Bing is.
Once you are done, toggle on VoiceOver and it will ask you to type in a random search to see how Cake differs from other browsers. When you search, you have to toggle off VoiceOver, and swipe left about two or three times.
You should get a close button at some point. You're past the tutorial.
Browsing is fine. However, buttons are not as labeled and it will take some double tapping around to see what they do.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling

Few 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.

Other Comments

Honestly I think this app could be made accessible if we get in touch with the developers.
Hopefully, something can be done.
