Default Best Note Taking apps for Galaxy Note 2

I love the Galaxy Note 2!!

The only app I am jealous of the iPhone/iPad is the Note Taker HD. Are there any apps like this one for Android, especially for the Galaxy Note 2? I need to be able to import a photo of a building, work space, etc., and then draw STRAIGHT lines for dimensioning purposes. Also, the ability to enter notes as text would be very helpful. Any ideas about apps with these capabilities?

Contact the developer of Note Taker HD, and ask about an Android version, and maybe even ask for a Note enhanced version. I've got to think the SG Notes would fascinate someone who writes a note-taking app.

S Note can do all this. Comes pre-installed on your Note 2.

Papyrus Beta

I use it on the Note 5.3 and Note 10.1. It has palm rejection. You can use the pen to write and finger to erase.

I talked to the makers of the Note Taker HD app and they said they had no plans of making an app for Android=( I've been looking for an app that compares too and so far I haven't found anything I like. Most don't have the magnified window at the bottom to write in and the ones that do don't have auto advance that I've seen.
Antipaper Notes comes close but has a few drawbacks. No auto advance that I've found, when in portrat mode some of the buttons on top are cut off on the sides, and you can't pay for it through google play but overall it seems to come close.
