So I just installed SelfieX on my iPhone 6S, and noticed that the screen looks way different from the podcast Lulu Heartgen (sorry if I mispelled your name) did.
The buttons on the main screen are now clearly read by VoiceOver.
Also, I recall the app being about $0.99 in the U.S. where I live, but now it is completely free with no ads.
The main screen, allows you to now be able to switch cameras, and the menu is there for changing and purchasing voices, as well as other apps, sharing, etc.
Unfortunately, sighted assistance is still required for things like cropping, and stuff like that. But i'm glad there's improvement in this application.
Hope this is not old news.
