Accessibility Comments

This app is totally inaccessible to VoiceOver users.

The only element that VoiceOver might find is the textfield where you enter a hostname or IP address. However, you won't be able to find this by swiping. The only way you will know it even exists is if you happen to tap directly on it.

This means that if you are lucky you might be able to do a search, but don't expect VoiceOver to read the search results. It won't.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads no page elements.

Button Labeling

No buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is totally inaccessible.

Other Comments

Thankfully I got this app whilst it was available for free, so no money was wasted!

Why is it that put apps that aren't accessible with voice over? It makes no since! If they aren't here, than, in most cases, we should assign they aren't usable with voice over!

Hi Sean,

The purpose of the App Directory is to collect information on all apps, not just those that are accessible.

There are already a number of instances where a developer has taken steps to improve the accessibility of their apps after seeing problems reported here.

Also, few people will assume that an app is inaccessible simply because it isn't posted here (after all, there are over 300,000 apps in the App Store!). So, by including information on inaccessible apps we can save people some time, and, in the case of paid apps such as this one, save them the hassle of having to request a refund.
