Accessibility Comments: 

If I had to guess, it would appear as though specific work was done in the area of VoiceOver accessibility for this app. All buttons and other elements appear to be clearly labeled, and VoiceOver reads the current conditions and daily forecasts very well. The hourly forecast graphs are obviously not accessible, but I'm not really sure how they could be made so.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver and is easy to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

I really like this app, because it gets its data directly from NOAA/NWS and Environment Canada, depending on your location.
