Device(s) App Was Tested On:
All on screen elements are accessible, are properly labeled and can be interacted with easily.
I’m the sort of person who can often be found using more than one type of similar app. I.E. multiple weather apps or package tracking apps. This is partly because such apps intrigue me but also as a practical matter I’m a fan of redundancy as one never knows when an app or the services it provides will be discontinued, abandoned by the developer or when accessibility might break. Thus when another popular package tracking app seemed to cease offering push notifications for packages and its developer stopped communicating with users via support channels or social media channels a few months back I began examining my alternative options. One of which was an app I already had in my stable if you will. A few years back I downloaded ParcelTrack from the app store but never fully embraced it as earlier incarnations had many unlabeled elements and tabs. Still since I’d become a premium user I kept it around. Upon revisiting the current version at the time of this writing which is version 2.1 I was pleasantly surprised to find that all tabs and on screen elements were properly labeled and thus announced by VoiceOver. Further more this app along with its premium subscription like another similarly named Parcel App now offers a web interface through which one can add, delete or other wise manage packages. Its push notifications hold their own against other aps offering similar notifications in terms of timely arrival. While the app itself is free and offers limited functionality I find the premium in app subscription which I believe is priced at $2.99 to be a good value and worthwhile investment for myself. It is my understanding that this is a one time purchase but couldn’t verify this for certain at the time of this writing.
I’m glad to note the strides in accessibility this developer has made in terms of this app and have written to express such gratitude directly to them.
I heartily recommend this app and its premium subscription to anyone who wants or needs to track packages for personal or business purposes.
