Phone apps for logging speed tests?

Looking to time my acceleration on a stock FIST. I heard Dragy was ok, and i found Speedometer GPS. Any particular suggestions? Im don't have any particular speed test in mind just as long as it's fairly legal. First in mind is something like a highway run of 30-80mph, something like that. Lots of apps out there that are supposed to be for 0-60 but i want to eliminate the 0- part so i can gauge power and mostly leave traction out of the equation.

Any apps that you guys know of that will let me set the start/end MPH, or have a list of set parameters? I could just use my clock timer but it's a little clunky as im driving a stick shift and don't want to split my attention so much from just driving.

Use the local law enforcement. I usually find the nearest speed trap and wait for them to pace me....due to the fact Johnny law cant gun me because I am going to Fast. Then when I get pulled over and they ask how fast I was going? I then reply....Can you tell me? HAHAHA ....Kidding.... The best way IMO is to load the car onto a dyno and let it Rip!

I think i found one that's somewhat useful. DragRace is pretty neat, any time you stop the car it resets it's timers and sounds a ding. Then when you start moving it starts the timers and records the times for 10/20/40/60/70mph as you pass them. It also records 1/32, 1/16 ect, up to 1/4 mile times as you pass them. All hands free without me having to hit any buttons on screen.

It's not exactly what i wanted but it's the most useful so far. I want one like this but that will reset when i hold a steady 30mph or whatnot, and when it dings i hit the gas and it times me to whatever MPH i have set as the goal. I'll keep digging but if nothing, DR works fairly well for comparing before and after a mod. I've avoided tickets so far with my FIST, hope you didn't jinx me !!!!!!

Or just go to a drag strip
