    For some reason I thought with Google Now we had location based reminders. I can't seem to figure it out....if we have it at all.

    Do we have it? If not, is there a good app for it?

    Give it time. It took three weeks or so before Google Now started giving me location based reminders. It needs to "learn" your habits. Make sure the location based feature is turned on and make sure you use Voice Search often. Also it doesn't hurt, if you have Facebook, to "check in" to locationsoften. Doing so seems to help Google Now learn

    I mean I want it to....for example....remind me to call home when I get to work. Remind me to get light bulbs when I am at Wal-Mart. Etc

    Like the Siri location based reminders on the iPhone.

    Google now can work like that.

    Ex..."remind to to call Judy when I get home"

    I just sent myself a reminder for when I get home, so I will see what happens.
    It did send me a message to my Gmail as a RecordedMessage1.amr file to download, same as it did for him.

    Yea, it reminds you by sending you a email. Hope you look at your email for reminders every time you go by every place you know.
