Download and extract file.
Copy file to your DS's apps folder.
Note: DSNotes uses DLDI for reading/writing files, so be sure to patch the program appropriately for your device.
On the bottom screen, you have the drawing program, which has a stylus-based toolbar (contains pencils, erasers, muli-level undo/redo, and clear screen).
On the top screen you have a browser to view any saved files. When you save a file, the filename is generated automatically based on the current date and time. The files in the top-screen browser are sorted by date (newest first).
All notes are stored in the folder named DSNotes in the root directory of your card (it will be created automatically if it doesn't exist).
