You need to take notes on the special Livescribe paper in the form of journals or notebooks or print your own paper with a color laser printer.
One of the nice features with this pen is that you can also record audio while you write. However, you need to use the microphone from your iOS device to record. This product allows you to take notes while you record.
One of the other features of the app is that you can turn your handwriting into text and search it. You can learn more about the app here.
