Accessibility Comments: 

The app is very easy to use with VoiceOver. The only strange thing I've encountered are duplicate buttons and labels when using VoiceOver. It's possible to double tap and hold on several of these duplicate controls. However, you can ignore the other controls and double tapp and hold the speak button.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling: 

Most buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.

Other Comments: 

I love having access to Alexa on my iPhone. This is also great for those who don't own an Echo device but still want to take advantage of the Alexa service and the many skills that are available.
