Accessibility Comments

Works well enough with VoiceOver, though I have no idea what a few of the bottom tabs do. I also haven't figured out how to change the volume of the audio, but it is low enough that this hasn't been a problem in the few minutes I've played with the app. I've emailed the developer about the button labeling issue; be forewarned, their contact form is useable but a bit quirky.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

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

Other Comments

I like this app and hope an update comes out relabeling things a bit. If you choose to play music along with the coffee shop sounds, your music playback can be through several sources, for example, your own music library, Songza, or Pandora. When you choose this option, the music audio is routed through that particular app. The two finger double "magic tap" gesture does not seem to work with Coffitivity audio itself. Also, when using their Website on a computer, the audio will start playing automatically, but not overly obnoxious to the point of not hearing VoiceOver. Maybe it respects your system sound setting? I chose to keep it on while writing this entry.

An app that is similar to Coffitivity is Noisli. I haven't had any problems with buttons. You can combine tracks to create your own blend of a coffee shop environment. It should be noted that, in order to find all the background combinations, you will need to swipe through four pages. You might like to check this one, too.
