Offline Mode Issues

Hello, I am developing an app that allows users to take photos of receipts and upload them to a document library. The app works perfect and as an extra touch I wanted to have it so if a user is on the road or somewhere without data they can go through the process as normal but the data will just be saved locally to a gallery. Once the user is back online they can go into this gallery and press a "Upload" button and the data will be sent as normal. 


As far getting this to work goes I have accomplished that. The two issues I have are as follows:


1.) If I have no data or connection I cannot even get into the app

(I know this one should make sense but I feel in the past Ive been able to open and load powerapps even when I dont have wifi)


2.) If I turn my phone into airplane mode while in the app I cant do anything as in even if I click a button with navigation controls it wont even load a screen. 


Could this be an issue with a certain connector I am using or is this just plain not possible. I watched a great video by @ShaneYoung showing that this is possible and I cant seem to get this to work in my situation. In his video he turns his phone to airplane mode and is able to load his app even without wifi. 


My connections are as follows:






Please let me know if anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated!
