    I'm using runkeeper at the minute, you can set it to tell you what your current pace is as well as how far you've gone, it'll also post to facebook/twitter etc.

    Another good app is jogfm which matches the tempo of the music on your phone to the pace you're running or you can set it at a pace to keep you at that pace, I find it helpful

    also if you're just starting off you could try the NHS couch to 5k program, gets you from nothing to running 5k in 9 weeks, well worth doing if you're just getting started

    good luck
