With the May 6 update of this app, I cannot navigate anywhere or see anything with VoiceOver. Any others having issues? The reviews in the AppStore seem to suggest that many sighted users loathe this new version of the app, but if anyone has had any success with VoiceOver it would be helpful to know what you have done to achieve this. Thanks. I am looking for an email address to reach them but so far no luck.

Thanks. This is what I had noticed also. Is there an email address to contact the developer on this, or would it be more effective to simply use the Contact Us form offered on the Web site? Thanks.

Yes, both of you are correct. The app's recent update makes it very hard to use with voice over. E-mailing them seems like the best way to go. This is very unfortunate, as apps like Yahoonews, USA today and others are also starting to become harder to navigate with Voice Over. If you like politics, Politico's app is pretty good and accessible.
