Accessibility Comments: 

Overall, it's one of the simplest Facebook app that I have tried so far, as this is based off of MenuTab for Facebook. The developer have decided to move over to go for Facebook it seems, as this also has a same developer name. As far as VoiceOver usability goes, the app is fully accessible, though there are two buttons that are not labeled, but as long as the help tag is enabled it's easy to deal with. Also, the fact that you have ability to switch between mobile and desktop version, with iPhone like mobile interface is easy to get use to.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.
