Accessibility Comments

This app is pretty accessible. There is one mislabelled button that I know of, "Gear," and this opens the settings. You have to swipe around a lot to find the different information--as is typical of a lot of weather apps--but as far as weather apps go this is one of the more accessible ones.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability
