DALLAS - When you're in high school if someone says you`re not allowed to do something, it makes you want to do it even more.

That apparently extends to app developers too, like the people who came up with an anonymous messaging app called After School.

A year ago the app was placed in detention. Apple`s app store banned it over concerns it could be used for bullying and harassment.

But the company is back at the table with the cool kids now. They've raised more than $16 million to develop a revamped version of the app.

The company now has a safety board to advise the founders on security and anti-bullying measures and they have real people reading every post to be sure students are following the rules.

Michael Callahan, the co-founder of the company, even released an open letter to teens asking them to use the app for positivity and uplifting each other.

So after school has now come back from the afterlife. Let's see if they can stay out of detention this time.
