    If that was the only app doing it, I wouldn't sweat it. However, it's happened with a few different apps.

    Are these both available for iP5? When I read the description of Accelerate it listed devices up 4S...

    Both work great on my 5.

    But do you really need both tweaks? I would think accelerator alone would work.

    Accelerate only speeds up the images. Nitrous lets non-native apps use the nitro engine to render, which actually makes the app itself faster. The two in combination are the true miracle. The perfect pairing, if you will.

    While it is way cool to OC a PC, how much benefit are you really getting by OC'ng your phone? Just playing devils advocate here
    I would have thought the same thing until I tried it. If you install and try with just the default settings, I think you'll appreciate why others find it useful. Navigating around the phone is just a LOT faster with no delay in opening anything or moving from one task to the next. How much time will it save me, not sure ;-) But, you might try and see for yourself.

    Regarding comments on OCing causing heat issues, I definitely don't have any overheating of my iP5. I originally asked about battery life because since JB'ing my phone I notice my iP5 has a big drop overall in battery life from stock. BUT, I have a LOT of stuff installed (too much to list) that is likely causing it. I was curious if someone with just Accelerate or someone who had a stable setup and consistent battery life that just recently installed Accelerate (even if they previously had lot of apps) would indicate if they found any specific change they could attribute to Accelerate itself. Hard for me to say whether Accelerate is lowering my battery life and would have to uninstall a few days without installing anything new to get a baseline on that... and I don't want to uninstall it

    my first line of thought as a PC gamer and regular Overclocker(OCer). Is this sounds as if it's overclocking the CPU? GPU? I know what can happen when doing that so if that is the case it's no thanks for me. I'm just saying that was my first thought.
    As an aside, I emailed the dev to ask what exactly Accelerate is doing. No answer from him/her yet. Others here are commenting it is only speeding up animations but it's unclear to me which part of the iPhone is responsible for "speeding up animation"... is that not something done by the CPU or GPU? I'm asking out of pure and utter ignorance but I would have thought that pretty much all tasks were handled by one of those???

    I guess Cydia didn't want me have it yesterday (she is such a tease). But, O MY!!! Ferrari indeed. When I closed settings it almost gave me a headache LOL. It needs a countdown.... "Insane speed coming in 3.... 2.... " I might need to disable it until I am sitting still .... Thanks for the suggestion though.. Not sure if I am ready to drop money on Nitrous yet, but we will see...

    I was so drunk with power from all the speed I never tried any other setting... going from ferrari to cheetah was a good suggestion

    Wow. It takes a lot to impress me, but this combo did it. Between the actual speed increase of some apps that Nitrous gives and the psychological boost that Accelerate provides, the phone (and iPad) feels at least twice as fast.

    I installed the combo last night and ran with it all day today. I log my battery state with BatteryLogger, and I can confirm that there was no difference at all in my power drain. As far as I can tell, this is all benefit with no downside. I have not encountered any problems with any apps.

    I'm assuming these are both compatible with iOS 6.1, can someone confirm?

    I have them both on my iP5 with 6.1 and what seems to be a relatively stable setup, though I have a lot of other stuff installed as well.

    In a word, yes. I had them on 6.1.1 then 6.1.2 and they work fine with no extra battery drain that I can discern.

    I know Accelerate is, JB my cousin's 4s this weekend. He said it was so slow so I installed it for him just to see what all the fanfare was about. I was impressed but still wouldn't install it on any of my phones for the same reasons I already listed. My cousin loved it though and using it for two days it was rock stable. He didn't want to pay for Nitrous but this was enough for him. He buys a new iPhone every model anyway so I figure if it does anything bad he'll have a 5s when it comes out anyway 😂

    I tried %hooks law and loved it until I opened my contacts app on iPad and saw the messed up graphics. Contacted Ryan (dev) and he said its very experimental if there are problems remove it.

    I used nitrous towards the end of my iPhone 4 life and it was great. Haven't found the need on my iPhone 5.

    I just realized I misspelled "Accelerate" in the title of this thread. It makes want to stick a pencil in my eye.

    I have %hooks law, Accelerate and Nitrous installed and it really does seem so much faster. Very nice tweaks.

    Is there a tweak to make banner notifications quicker? Not necessarily their animation, (that's why I installed accelerate but it didn't help) but to reduce the amount of time they are on your screen for?

    Also, I took accelerator down to "sprinter" because apps were crashing on me too.

    Holy cow. I second that. I slowed down to cheetah as Ferrari just seemed unnatural. Cheetah is much fast enough my phones with these two hacks is more than the fastest phone on the planet it's like on steroids amazing
