Default Best Notes/Memopad app(syncing to Google docs) similar to iPhone's NoteMaster app

I've recently shifted to Android after 4 years of using iPhone. With iPhone I've been using "NoteMaster" notes app heavily and am very impressed with it.
You can organize notes in folder structure, you can store notes images etc and syncs to Google docs.
Unfortunately the developer does not have an equivalent in android. I've been trying very hard to find a similar app in android space but so far no luck.
Can any one please suggest.
Thanks in advance

*EDIT* oops should read GNotes

Funnily enough I spent about 4 hours yesterday trying to find a notepad app that uses folders and syncs automatically with Google Drive. In the end I had to revert back to Flick Notes with SimpleNotes syncing. Useful, but I'd prefer to use Google Drive..

What phone do you have? The Samsung S-Note app syncs with Google Docs. You can draw on it, write on it, type on it, etc.

Oops quite correct - fat fingered that one and didn't notice. Duly corrected thanks.

However the point remains the same - it syncs with GMail rather than Google Drive

Looks like Onote may sync with Google Drive: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.orosys.onote&feature=search_result# ?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsImNvbS5vcm9zeXMub25vdGUiXQ..

I gave the ad supported version a quick run through but haven't had a chance to have much of a play with it.

I'm looking at syncing local folders against Google Drive using FolderSync and then using a text editor.

On the offhand, why not actually just use Google Docs itself on the Google Drive app?

Yeh I've come to that conclusion myself - here's hoping they beef up offline controls folder level would be nice) etc in future updates

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Seems like my search is finally over. Just down loaded and did a quick test and seems like it meets all my requirements. So far it looks promising, just like iOS NoteMaster!!

Thanks all for taking time to help me!!
