Nice Pace: The app shows your speed, time, and distance as you run, charting your pace in one-minute intervals. Tap the lock icon to keep yourself from tapping the Stop or Pause button accidentally. When locked, the screen switches to landscape view with big, easy-to-read numbers. In the premium version, tapping the screen prompts RunKeeper to speak your current stats, dodging any clumsy fumbling to check your time.

History: RunKeeper hangs onto all your past runs, so you can quickly go back to review the overall stats and pace chart for any run. The real nitty-gritty historical review, however, happens at the app's website, runkeeper.com, where you can chart, map, and share your running routes (you can see maps of the routes on your iPhone, too).

This nifty GPS-powered running log tracks your location, providing pace, distance, and altitude info, even mapping your running route. RunKeeper syncs to the app's website, where you can analyze, chart, and share stats to your healthy heart's content. Because it relies on GPS, the app works only outside (sorry treadmillers), and iPhone limitations keep it from tracking your run in the background (you're on pause if the phone rings).

I can with all honesty say that this app changed my life. I am now a runner! I love seeing my progress on the map, my speed, my mile markers, and I love that I can go on the internet and get my info as well.

Great app!!
