My sister has been using an app called Runtastic so I though I'd give it a try. It works a lot better than MapMyWalk--mainly because so far it isn't as crash-prone and it actually shares to FB. The only problem with it today it that I actually started it at the red dot but it didn't start tracking me until there where that green dot is--both dots should be right on top of each other.
So this was a little over 4 miles. My partial was 2.3 miles. I tried MapMyWalk on it again today just for kicks, but as before, it won't post to FB so I can't get a map off of it.
Another cool thing about this app is the map. The map that it posts is just a basic map, but the one you get to see on your phone has a color-coded route instead of just solid red. It ranges from red for the fastest parts down through orange and yellow to green for the slowest. So I can look back and see which parts of the route had the most troublesome meters.
This one has a voice thing too, which is kind of annoying. A British woman's voice announces every time you hit a new mile mark and says some other things. I didn't have it turned up loud enough to hear it that clearly today, but the first time she announced the mile I jumped and spun around with a "WTF?!" I hope no one saw me.
