Accessibility Comments: 

Recent updates appear to have fixed some of the previous problems, and as a result you can now access most of the app with VoiceOver.Button labeling is poor in places, but at least VoiceOver will now read the timeline (although I do find that VoiceOver will occasionally stop reading tweets as you swipe through the timeline ... very odd).I've only used this with Twitter so far. I wouldn't recommend it over the more accessible options that are available, but there are some encouraging signs that it's heading in the right direction.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.


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.
