NF Is Awesome

My computer was acting all slow and crap for pa cyber so I turned it off because I couldn’t move the mouse and I was about late for class so I got on my iPhone 7 and went to my school site and tryied going on to class but I needed to download this app then it downloaded in not even 10 seconds and I got onto class and tried messaging the teacher why I was about late but could not do it so I just waited for my computer to get done what it was doing when it was powering on so then I got to get to class and message the teachers

There so the only thing wrong with this app is that I could not chat at all not to the teacher or anyone else

Thank you for reading this

Hopefully the app makers read this because I will have to use this a lot and I don’t like talking I like messaging


Needs Updated STILL- Dev Only Submitted Update To Not Be Pulled From App Store


Kudos for updating it finally after four years, even though it was only updated at the risk of being pulled from the App Store as the application wasn’t 64 bit.

Its a moot point because the app looks like crap. No video, no screen share abilities, and the app is still designed visually for old iPhones.

You'll get a higher rating if you fix all of these issues.

Pre-Recorded Lectures


For some reason it won’t let you watch prerecorded lectures which REALLY gets annoying. I use my iPad as a laptop and so I have to go to my schools library to watch the lectures when my professor prerecords. I have not had any problems with the live lecture though, that has been working great
