I'm an Mac and iPhone app developer and have been researching into accessibility in iPhone apps. I'm sighted and have previously added accessibility support to existing apps, so I'm familiar with what's necessary to make them accessible, but I have not actually tried using apps regularly with just VoiceOver.
Can anyone out there comment on any iPhone apps they've used with VoiceOver enabled that they feel are more pleasant to use than others? I'm trying to figure out how we can make apps better instead of just meeting the minimum bar of "accessibility support".
One app I like to use that takes accessibility to a whole new level is called simple mic. I can't remember the developer, but I love what they've done with VO and making the app usable.
Thanks. I found SimpleMic in
Thanks. I found SimpleMic in the app store. I'll give it a try.
An app that immediately comes to mind is VoiceDream Reader.
It is used for reading - books, PDF files, EMail, documents, you name it.
It seems that the developer has truly thought of everything when it comes to great features, efficiency, and ease of use.
The layout is great, the features you need are intuitive, it's just an all around fantastic app.

The apps that I really like are the ones that make good use of the "actions" option on the rotor. Usually I see this in communication apps (Mail, Tweetings, WhatsApp and Skype come to mind). So, if I quickly want to make a Skype call to someone, I just go to the contact I'm interested in, but then instead of double tapping their name and flicking around the info screen looking for the "call" option, I can just start flicking up and down to see options like call, chat, add to favourites, delete and so on and whichever one I double-tap gets activated
