    Speed Intensifier Speeds Up Your iPhone

    (iphonedownloadblog)

    Tired of waiting for Apple to release the next iPhone to experience faster speeds? Luckily, theres an app for that. Well, at least there is if you are using a jailbroken device.

    Speed Intensifier is a 2-part tweak that can speed up your iPhones performance by shortening or completely removing iOS animations. These transitional animations typically happen when you open a folder or window, and can really slow you down as you bounce between apps

    This tweak is similar to the FakeClockUp package we wrote about earlier in the year, but there are some differences. This extension actually has 2 separate installs. One for your Settings.app and the other is a Winterboard add-on.

    Both files can be found in the insanelyi.com repo. For folks who dont have the source installed already, just navigate to your Manage tab in Cydia, select Sources, and add http://repo.insanelyi.com.

    Once the new repository is installed, do a search for Speed Intensifier. You should see the app as well as the Speed Intensifier Addon. I recommend installing both of these, as the add-on compliments the main application quite well.

    The add-ons description states that it breaks the limitations that Apple imposes on the device to save your battery. It will make your iPhones processors operate as if it is plugged into the wall charging.

    Speed Intensifier is adjustable from your Settings app, where you can change the speed of the tweak, as well as disable it. The add-on should show up in Winterboard as 3 options: SI Underclock, Si Speedup, and Si overclock.

    The developer claims that you can speed your devices up to dectuple level between the 2 tweaks, and it doesnt drain your battery. While Id agree it certainly makes your iPhone seem a lot faster, I dont know if Id concur that it doesnt make your battery drain quicker, mine certainly appeared to.

    I guess I will just have to play with the settings to try and find a balance between good battery life and faster iOS speeds. Both files for Speed Intensifier are free downloads if youre looking to try it out.*While I dont have any evidence to support this, I think that Speed Intensifier is quicker and more stable than the alternative.

    Have you used Speed Intensifier yet? Do you prefer it or another app like FakeClockUp?
    i have reservations of using this. just recently have my device to optimal battery performance so i will see how others do with it first

    I was using FakeClockUp with my last Jailbreak. However, I haven't used it with my latest JB yet.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't actually speed up your phone. What it does is speed up the UI animations, making apps appear to open faster.

    That's what FakeClockUp does; it sounds like this other app actually lets you overclock your device.

    This is the impression that I got as well.

    Hey, BLiNK, let us know what you think of it, and if it does anything to your battery life. Thanks.

    gave it a go for about 5 hours and it wasn't that bad on battery but there seemed to be something going on

    removed it anyways. i guess, for me, the problem i am having is it takes away from the smoothness of the iOS experience. so even if there never was any type of battery issue, with this or FCU, it's not a "good experience" for me

    Yeah, I hate slowness too. I'd really like an app that is quickly killing the iphone....
