This app is very accessible with no known issues.
The only known issues that I have is the Map. At any point when you double tap on a business and such. It will bring you in to a page that contains information about the business you are interested. You will find that by flicking to the right will run in to a map that will go on forever in telling you all of the streets around this location. If you use your finger to move around towards the center. This should jump you in to a pretty accessible area where you can hit the Route button which then let you select from a list of supported GPS apps that you have installed. There are also other information like phone numbers and etc. It is a pretty nice app for being free.
