Idea

Suggestion: title.

If you expect people to pay for something most other notebook apps offer for free, well good luck with that.

I switched from Google Keep because I wanted to try Evernote, but the "no free offline access" even to the notes I take on that very same device is definitely a deal-killer.

You have my email. Call me when this changes.

Bye.

Hi there! you can access notes offline using a Basic account in Evernote for Mac/Windows:

Downloading notebooks for editing offline on mobile devices is a Premium feature:

I hope that helps!

[Presumably you're talking about mobile Evernote, not desktop, which, as BSR points out, already allows your notebooks to be accessed when you're offline]

But many people already do pay for Evernote (hey, premium is way less than my coffee budget!), because it offers a lot more than some free services do, which you already know because you're apparently not totally satisfied with Keep. Sorry, but I don't think that offering more features with the sole aim of getting more free users is a great way to stay in business; that's why, for example, they restricted free user's concurrent devices in the first place.

If you take notes on your device, then chances are that they'll remain cached there so long as you access them frequently when you're online (obviously, notes that you take when you're offline will stay on your device at least until you go back online, and  probably longer). But  that's only guaranteed for the Premium service.  Note that if you're, say, going traveling and want to have a number of notebooks always available to you, you can move up to Premium for a limited time, and then move back.

Unless I'm missing something, you have no value as a customer.  Why would Evernote be interested in contacting you?

Both the Windows and Mac platforms store a local copy of our data, and can be used offline; and it's free.
