    My friend's on iOS 5 and one feature I saw that it has which I loved was the ability to put notifications/reminders based on location (e.g. popup reminder when I get to location X). I tried searching on Play Store but didn't find anything.

    Can anyone recommend a good app if there is one? Thanks

    Setting Profiles will let you create a notification, or send a text message, based on any number of criteria, including location. Location can be based on a wifi access point, cell phone tower, or GPS location (if GPS in enabled, of course). Android doesn't (generally) do pop-up notifications. It's designed so that notifications don't keep interfering with what you're trying to do. Some SMS apps will do popups, though.

    So you could text yourself (or someone else), when you get to work, and have that pop up. Or just notice that you've got a notification and slide down the notification shade to read it.

    I tried this out yesterday. The garage where I park my car at work closes at 6:00 p.m., so I've created a notification in Setting Profiles so that IF I'm at my work location, AND the time is 5:45 p.m., my phone buzzes and gives me a notification that says "Get Car." Worked great. If it's 5:45 and I'm not at work, nothing happens.

    I've just released an app that makes location based reminders. It does popup, voice, and notification reminders based on your location. It's called Geobells. I know it's a bit late, but if you're still looking, you should check it out. Click to view on the Google Play store

    The paid version of NFC Task Manager can run tasks based on locations.
