Get Moving: Start, stop, and pause buttons trigger iTreadmill to start your run, tracking your pace and distance (or virtual distance if you're running in place). If you've given the app your weight, it also estimates the number of calories you've burned. Before using the app, it's a good idea to calibrate it to your stride length by tapping the "cal" button at the top right.

Perfect Pace: Work your thumb across the dial at the top right to set the pace of your run or walk. When you turn on the pacer, the app makes a ticking rhythm to pace your footfalls. If you keep your normal stride length and match the app's rhythm, you'll hit the speed you're after.

iTreadmill is a good alternative or complement to RunKeeper to help runners and walkers measure pace and distance. The app uses the motion detector of your iPhone or iPod Touch to turn the device into a pedometer that counts the number of steps you take. After a bit of up-front calibration, the app is remarkably accurate and, unlike RunKeeper, you can use it indoors, even running in place to create a virtual treadmill.
