Default The only app I really miss from my iPhone

One of the most surprising things about switching from a iPhone5 to a Samsung Galaxy Note II has been the Android ecosystem in Google Play. I expected I would miss a LOT of apps since I use a ton of apps.

Turns out, Google Play has equivalents to almost every iPhone app I rely upon with 1 painful exception: an application like Notemaster that enables Google Drive docs to be sync'd localy for offline access.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/notemaster-notes-synced-dropbox/id297921531?mt=8

NoteMaster for iPhone and iPod Touch :: Kabuki Vision

Yes, Google Drive allows this on a per document basis. But I have > 100 docs in Google Drive that I need routine access to offline during an upcoming trip. I don't have time to do the multiple taps in every single of the > 100 document to enable offline access. Nor do I want to do that on an ongoing basis. Notemaster handles it beautifully.

Does anyone use an app that does this?

ps: I purchased FolderSync to do this, but it does not sync native google docs.

It only sync'd my PDFs and text files, which are only of ~5 of the ~100.

Would that work ?

View files offline in the Google Drive Android app - Google Drive Help

I was impressed myself how many aps you can get, coming from the iPhone myself. In fact, some even work better and not to mention, widgets

And just a plug for Google Drive / Google Docs in case you haven't tried it.

It's totally fun to collaborate via Google Drive docs and spreadsheets with family or friends related to an upcoming project or event. Each person's cursor has a color, you can tromp over someone else's cursor :-) (it supports multiple people editing 1 doc at the same time.)
