App Announcing Average Speed

my phone stays in my bag instead of on my stem or handlebar, so i'm looking for an android cycling app that announces my average speed every 10 - 30 minutes to an hour.

I know Endomondo will tell you the time for each mile if you want it to. Then you can do the math in your head.

Google's My Tracks has the following "voice frequency" options:

-Minutes: 5, 10, 15, 30, and 60
-Miles: 1, 5, and 10

It has been a few days since I used it, but I believe that it announces time (duration of activity), distance, and speed- not necessarily in that order, though.

Edit: Used My Tracks today and the sequence is distance, time, and speed. A couple of things to note about this app:

-It is free. No third party ads, no premium subscription level to upgrade to.
-It will break the data down between average and actual. Example- I walked just over 3 miles today. From hitting start to stop, it took 54:34 but the actual time in motion was 50:36 and the average speed was 3.32 mph but the actual moving speed was 3.58 mph.
