Accessibility Comments

The App used to be Accessible but now it is not possible to control or manage most devices already added. Furthermore it's no longer possible using Voiceover to add a new Smart device.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads a few page elements.

Button Labeling

Few buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability

Some parts of the app are accessible with VoiceOver, but not enough to make it usable.

Other Comments

I have contacted the Developer who did not address any of the show stopping Accessibility bugs introduced in recent versions. I and many other Visually Impaired iPhone users are no longer able to manage our Smart devices that rely on this App. I have contacted Apple to see if they could gently nudge the developer to improve Accessibility Apple suggested leaving a review in the Appstore which I've done. We need more users to submit reviews, and share the difficulties to get the developer to take notice and action. A major roadblock now is the "Add new device" button is no longer seen by Voiceover. There is also an area on the main screen of the app that Voiceover is unable to interact with (because of the design of the app), that shows existing Smart devices.
