I use Keep to set location-based reminders for my notes in Evernote. I just share the Evernote note to Keep and set the location-based reminder. I also like using Keep to set recurring reminders. In Keep you can also do note links, though you need to use the web-based Keep app to set up the note links. Once that's done, I go back to my Chrome app and can jump between notes by clicking the links.
Please forgive me if this suggestion was already offered. If you move the Evernote app to your SD card, would it then store offline notebooks there?
