Thanks for the article. That was very helpful. We're looking into releasing apps in these varieties - iPhone, Android, Blackberry.

You didn't mention which variety of native app, but an article I wrote a little while ago covers some of the basics for iOS app accessibility:

Hi everyone,

Does anyone have any information about best development practices when creating a native mobile app? I understand that devices either include accessibility software, or software can be purchased for them, but what can be done on a development side to make sure that the application works well with the accessibility functions of the device. I haven't been able to find any information online regarding this yet.

Thank you,

Jeni McDonald
