Accessibility Comments: 

VoiceOver works perfectly with this app. Double tap a news story to get details, flick down with two fingers to read it in full. Flick back and forth with two fingers to go back to the list of stories and you will land right on the item that you had selected previously. Absolutely perfect for getting the news of the day during breakfast or during any other time of the day.

Other Comments: 

Using this app actually feels like reading a real newspaper, because it is so simple to use with VoiceOver. You just need very basic gestures, its so easy that I actually use it during breakfast, just like other people read their favourite paper.
