Looking for a good running ap to teach me how to pace

I downloaded mapmyrun last week but it doesn't do enough for me.  If more expericened I think it would be fine but I am trying to learn how to pace.

 

I am a sprinter who does occasional 5k's.  Now I am working towards a marathon.  My pacing is all jacked up.  On a 10 mile run last week, my mile pace varied by as much as 3 minutes.

 

With the ap only telling me where I am after every mile, I do not realize I have gone too fast or slow until it is too late.  Ideally I would like quarter mile updates or, even better, something that every 30-60 seconds would tell me if I was on whatever pace I have selected.

 

Is there such an ap out there?

 

Thanks for any info
