RunKeeper Pro ($10) is a Nike+ app that works with your iPhone. It tracks your runs using the iPhone’s GPS radio, and then displays your jogging or walking pace, your distance, and your time.
It can even spit out a nice bar graph displaying your speed over a given time period. After your run is over, you can log on to http://www.runkeeper.com/ to see your run displayed on a Google map. What didn’t RunKeeper’s developers think of?
