Notes requires wifi or cell connection?

Apparently the Notes app is not usable offline on the Fairphone 4. If the developers read these posts, could someone please write a Notes App that can be set to not require connection to a cloud?


Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online servicesphone

Once setup the app it is working fine also without network connection. If you do not want to use it with an account at all I would suggest to choose another notes app which is already available in F-Droid or another store of your choice ;- )

Thanks very much for the reply. I just got the Fairphone 4 and am a
recovering iphone user so I may be too challenged to use the Fairfone in
the short run until I figure it out. I did spend some time checking
that I have the latest operating system (I do) and playing around with
the notes app. On my Fairphone there is no way to even get the app to
open unless I have an internet connection and I “choose account.”

I have a login for Murena - does that mean I have an account? I have no
idea. In any event, why should I need to access it to make the app work
(if I’m understanding your reply.) I’ll take the advice from the forum
and look for a privacy-friendly alternative but I suggest that Murena
and/or Fairphone fix this soon. I don’t need someone else’s cloud, I
assume (maybe incorrectly) that there is an app to allow me to back up
this phone locally to a laptop or two, Hope so.

Thanks for looking into this.

Did you “Create an account”, that is, take this step ?

If no, you are cloud free.

/e/ does work fine cloud free, but /e/ has been built to be “easy to use” with a cloud, so some of your elementary steps like this one may take a little work / research without the use of

There is no easy native backup method. What is in place is still quite experimental [HOWTO] use Seedvault early to understand Android backup.
