I love my RunKeeper app which is free. It gives audio cues for all kinds of intervals, plus you can have other audio as well (such as when you hit each mile or each ten minutes).

What I really like about it, is it also tracks other activities, such as biking and walking. It gives reports for monthly and year to date. You can also use your music tracks. And there is an online component that will give you actual training plans, some free and some you can pay for. It's very versatile, and the more I use it the more that I discover it can do.

I use a free app called myfitnesspal. It lets me scan the foods I eat as well as exercise. It gives me average times as well as split times. I just started using it this week so I don't all of its features yet. Good luck:)


Life is fragile. Love, laugh and enjoy.

Cutting to the chase: I want an android smartphone app that will track my run, elevation, pace, distance, all that fun stuff, but also give me audio clues for interval training for run/walk increments. Any suggestions???

Background: Many moons ago when I started getting out of the house for exercise I downloaded the MapMyRun app. It's just OK. I like the ease of using it and especially the elevation and pace aspects. It talks to me when I meet mile marks with pace and time. I want to upgrade though and find something that will also talk or make some alarm sound that I can set up run/walk intervals so that I can ease into longer distance running. I have spent the day looking up lots of apps but I feel that I don't know much more than I did when I started. I don't mind an appstore fee if it has everything but don't want something that is going to require additional purchases (such as a tracking watch or pedometer for the shoe). I usually listen to music when I run so a watch that beeps I might not hear easily beyond my headphones. I take my phone out with me when I run and I don't want to feel overloaded with lots of apps or things that I have to set each time.

Thanks everyone!!!
