Armband for Samsung Galaxy S2/running apps

Hi

I'm new to running and fancy having some sort of gadget to motivate my running, but do not fancy shelling out for a Garmin or Nike Sportswatch GPS. As I have a phone with GPS already, I wanted to make it more practical for the purpose! I have already taken it out on runs when I wear shorts with big pockets, but it's far from ideal. So I need an armband - has anyone used this one?

Which is a lot cheaper than the one which has been out for a few months:

Anyone got any experience of these?

I also need a decent Android app. I am using iMapmyrun at present which works fine, but does not breakdown the time over distance at all. Any suggestions?

Apologies if there is already threads for this subject; I did a very quick search and couldn't find anything...
