Any good mobile apps for sprints?

Hand-timing is too much pain in the ass. Is there something specific and good out there? I want something like MyTracks. You push start in the beginning and stop in the end of your session, every single movement is logged and then at the time-speed graph you can see the exact time/distance/top speed of each sprint. But MyTracks is too general, i suppose an app built for running would have more related graphs/features?

I don't know of anything like that, would be pretty cool. I use this one:

http://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=sprint%20start%20timer%20android&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0CCcQFjAA&url=https%3A%2F%2Fplay.google.com%2Fstore%2Fapps%2Fdetails%3Fid%3Dpluckyne.miniapp.sprintstarttimer&ei=aP47U8jBGoKVkwXFuoDADg&usg=AFQjCNGHP6n6d1h4DcsQwloL_dClzVpN6g&sig2=X33fzlo7fjASwav- N0ZiMQ&bvm=bv.63934634,d.dGI

Automatically starts, uses the phone gyro to measure rx time so you can just subtract that from the final time. Has full-screen stop button so it's pretty easy to stop it. Downside is you have to hold your phone in your hand, but I guess you can't really do much better solo running unless you had freelap or set up a video.
