1) Check your device
You will need an iPhone 5, iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c. If you are particularly patient I would consider working with a few iPhone 4s users to see if it can be made to work.
2) Download Birch Note
3) Get a Birch Notebook
Once you have the software up and running you will need the special paper in order for the software to work. You have two options, one is to download a (free) PDF and print an 8.5″x11″ notebook yourself, or purchase a 6″x9″ coil bound book from lulu.com.

4) Use Birch Note!
Go out, create and solve problems. If the software fails you then please let me know and I’ll get on it! Let me know if you have ideas or suggestions you can leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I recommend that you sign up and use Evernote as your cloud sync and backup option. While Birch Note will store your notes, it can’t sync them across your devices or do handwriting recognition.
