MapMyWalk by MapMyFitness - I use this APP every week with my walking group. This app tells us how many miles we are walking, what our time is, speed, pace, and calories burned. This App is free and you can tweet or Facebook your walk. It also shows a map of your walk. You can friend others or create a profile. Really i just use this to keep track of time and miles with my walking group and every mile it announces your distance, time, and pace.
They also have an app called MapMyRun, MapMyHike, MapMyRide and a few others too.
