Accessibility Comments: 

Voice Over reads most of the buttons and clearly reads the channel names and their descriptions. When you double tap on a channel, the music starts and you are taken to a Now Playing screen. The current song and the song history are easy to find. If you find a song you are really interested in, you can double tap it and do things like :Love," "WFT?," "Bookmark," "Tweet," "E-mail," and "Find On iTunes." There are no problems with Voice Over crashing like I have found on other streaming apps.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

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

Other Comments: 

The price of the app helps support the commercial free broadcasts.
