'True' offline for premium users in Evernote for Android Issues Posted February 7, 2014 I have the same problem on Android. If a data connection is active, (Evernote for unknown reasons) needs to connect to the server, even though the note is stored for offline viewing. This is problematic in an area of poor signal coverage. It delays or sometimes never displays the note until a good data connection is re-established. I run into this problem all the time while traveling and I find it annoying. I'm not sure why Evernote mechanized it this way. The only work-around that I know of is to turn mobile data off, This allows offline notes to load instantly.
