Accessibility Comments: 

You can get past the first screen which encourages you to pay for the in-app upgrade, but after that you will just get a ‘clunk’ from VoiceOver as it fails to find anything in the actual app’s interface which it can interact with. From what I can tell with my residual vision, this is probably because the app utilizes non-standard gestures and doesn’t incorporate any alternative way for VoiceOver users to access these.

VoiceOver Performance: 

VoiceOver reads no page elements.

Button Labeling: 

No buttons are clearly labeled.

Usability: 

The app is totally inaccessible.
