Accessibility Comments: 

This is just about usable with VoiceOver, but it&;s far deom straightforward.All of the content on the main screen appears to be accessible, but the weather data is read in a way that isn&;t easy to follow.Switching locations and accessing more detailed weather information is also far from easy. It can be done by using the single-tap and hold, and then sliding the finger to the left or right. This effectively &;drags&; the relevant information on to the screen, but only when VoiceOver focus in on certain elements. Dragging those panes back off the screen is even trickier.The bottom line ... there are far better options for VoiceOver users.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads most page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most 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.
