Accessibility Comments: 

This app, while previously presenting issues, seems to be fully accessible with VoiceOver. Worth the $2 it costs in my opinion, if you want an app for this purpose.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

All buttons are clearly labeled.


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

Other Comments: 

I'm glad to see the developers have fixed the few issues present in previous versions of this app.
