Michael means, "to enable offline note synchronization". Evernote free is
all about connecting to the net. The iOS app stores notes in the device you
create them on, and uploads them to the server when the device connects to
the network. However, notes created elsewhere won't automatically download
to your device. You have to download them.

The $5/month premium model increases your storage and bandwidth, and
synchronizes notes so they are available on your devices. It also indexes
text stored in images.

If you need a tablet note taking system, Evernote bought Penultimate
earlier this year, so we can expect improvements to the seamless
integration between handwritten notes and Evernote.

That said, I use free, and am blown away by the flexibility of note taking,
photos, and audio. Notebooks can be organized into stacks, and individual
notes can be tagged in ways that make sense to you.

I wrote my blog posts and Techwhirl articles in Evernote. I would have
shared the notes for editing and collaboration if more were on board.
Instead I copied the notes into Google Docs for working with others.
