Accessibility Comments

AppleVis Editorial Team Note: Please be advised that the accessibility rating has changed. If you feel this is an error. Please leave Comments below so we can keep this entry up to date. It appears to be mostly accessible. Original Poster Comments: Peapod has changed something in the web content which makes it so that when you search for an item, you can only add the first item to your cart. The only way to continue adding items to your cart is to restart the app. I will contact Peapod and make them aware of this issue, and encourage others to do the same.

Other Comments

This app used to be great for those individuals on the go who want to be productive while waiting on something or someone. I recently placed a full grocery order with this app while riding a train home from a work site. Sadly, this is no longer the case, and even with earlier versions of the app, you will not be able to use this to place orders.

I love Peapod, but find this app unusable. It is not possible to scroll down lists with VO on. The buttons on the right that allow you to get more info about an item are unlabeled and cannot be activated, similar to buttons in the FaceBook app. Try it yourself. It is free. I have raised my concerns to @PeapodDelivers. Peapod is a great service for people who are blind; I really wish that I could use this app!

There is a trick I use with Peapod that makes it virtually accessible, especially in adjusting shopping cart items and adding items from a long list. Basically, tap and hold the bottom of the screen and scroll up. You will note that the screen will update with the next page. You can now press the plus and minus buttons underneath an item to adjust the quantity. Do that for each screen in a list until you get to the last page. It's a bit tedious but it works. Hope this helps.

For the past few months I have been purchasing groceries using version 1.1.4 of the Peapod app on my iPhone 5S running IOS 7.1.2. I have found that the App is easy to use and that it is almost completely VO accessible including the following functions:
- Login to your Peapod account.
- Search for items by keyword.
- Browse by aisle.
- View specials.
- View new items.
- View my previous orders.
- Easily navigate through any of the item lists using standard VO gestures.
- Read additional information about an item by tapping the item details button.
- - Add items to your shopping cart from any of the item lists.
- increase or decrease item quantity either by tapping properly labeled plus and minus buttons or by manually entering a specific number.
- View and select available delivery dates and times.
- Checkout & pay.
- Modify orders prior to deadline.

The only two accessibility issues I've encountered are:
1. I cannot activate the "Sort By" element that is available at the top of some item lists.
2. I am not able to get the built-in barcode scanner to recognize a barcode.

regarding the accessibility issues listed in the origianl app description and the first comment, those issues seem to have been fixed.
1. I have no problems adding multiple items to my cart from a list of search results.
2. I have no problems scrolling through lists and pages in this App.
3. The buttons to provide additional information about an item are now properly labeled as "Item Details." When activated, the content of these item detail pages seems fully VO accessible.

I just used this app for the first time recently and successfully. placed an order.And was very happy with the access. I figured out how to deal with the "sort by" option but it needs some fixing. Basically, tap and hold on the control. you then have a picker below, but each time you swipe up, you change to the next option but the picker closes. Which is tedious if the option you want is a ways down. However, once you get it to the option you want, there is a save button which I only figured out by trial and error, actually saves your sort-by option so that all future product lists will be sorted that way. I set it to "unit price" and except for products which are sold by item instead of by weight, you get the cheapest products on top. Unfortunately the sort-by feature setting is not applied when you do a search.
There are some scrolling problems. It's really category by category. In some product listings, one can scroll down a whole page, and in others you have to swipe down from the top and not skip anything to get to the bottom.Actually, the top and bottom gestures work, so one could also swipe backwards from the bottom, but not to get to the middle. The same is true for the product descriptions. The ingredients and sometimes really useful product information, such as cooking instructions, are underneath all the nutrition information. For some products, one can use one gesture to move to the next screen, which means skipping directly to that product information, and for some, the only way to get to that information is to swipe a ridiculous amount of times to get past the nutrition information.
