Run with Map My Run - GPS Running, Jog, Walk, Workout Tracking and Calorie Counter by MapMyFitness works as a solution for keeping track of your exercise and calories.
If you’re currently trying to get in shape, hit a personal goal, or just maintain where you’re at right now this app can help keep you on track and motivated. The way the app works is that when you begin your workout you simply press the Start button. The app will then keep track of your mileage, route, minutes per mile, and the number of calories you've burned.
The app can track cycling, running, and more than 600 other types of activities. It can track with real-time stats, route mapping thanks to GPS, your pace, and elevation profile. As well the app can track food, nutrition, weight, and diet. It can even encourage you during your workout with voice-prompts that let you know your progress as you go.
If you like listening to music, or need to be able to answer the phone while working out that is not a problem as the app can run in the background.
There is the ability to also sync it with speed, heart rate, power, and cadence sensors from select companies.

I found this to be a very helpful app not just for its tracking capabilities but as a motivational tool as well. I found it even kept me organized and on track when it came to my daily calorie intake.
