Accessibility Comments

$2 wasted on yet another inaccessible weather app.

On the iPad virtually nothing works. The very last button (of course unlabelled) will open the settings menu, which is the only part of this app that comes close to being accessible. Whilst navigating the main screen you might hear some clicks, this will be VoiceOver passing through the day and hour selectors. Double tapping will select whatever you happen to be on, but VoiceOver will not read anything on the screen.

The app is slightly better on the iPhone, where it will actually read some page elements. However, the information about the weather is read in such a way that it is very difficult to determine what day and time it is referring to.

Another reason to avoid this app is that it is a major resource hog. Not only is it a 250MB download, but your device will grind to a virtual standstill if you try to use it with VoiceOver (most noticeable on the iPad).

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads a few 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.
