Speed Intensifier

Speed Intensifier is a tweak that’s been around for some time, but was just recently updated to play nice with iOS 7 and arm64 devices like the iPhone 5s. The effect, especially when you take into consideration the drastic animation changes present within iOS 7, is nothing short of startling.

If you’re looking to speed up, at least in perception, the speed of your device, then look no further. Speed Intensifier allows you to significantly increase the speed of animations found within iOS 7, and it does so while allowing you to keep iOS 7’s trademarked style. Check out our full video walkthrough inside, which showcases Speed Intensifier in action.

Once you install Speed Intensifier, head over to the stock Settings app and open up the tweak’s preferences. Inside the preferences, you’ll find a section for custom speed. The custom speed section has several settings, ranging from zero all the way up to infinite—the faster speed possible.

The animation speed changes are enacted in real time, so no resprings are required. I find that the x5 speed is a comfortable animation speed to go with, while the infinite setting is mind-boggingly fast. In fact, the infinite speed is probably way too fast for most tastes, and makes it so that the animations within iOS 7, which are useful for gaining context, are virtually nonexistent.

The last setting you’ll find within Speed Intensifier’s preferences, is a toggle for keeping the wiggle mode animation normal, even when you have Speed Intensifier enabled. The wiggle mode is already fast with normal animation settings, so increasing its speed with Speed Intensifier can cause the wiggle animation to just freeze up completely. This toggle eliminates this issue while allowing you to enjoy the animation speed increases in other areas of iOS.

Although I’m a firm believer that tweaks like this don’t really help you to work faster, there’s no denying that, at least from a perception standpoint, that Speed Intensifier speeds up your device. It makes it seem like your iPhone is supercharged and raring to go. It may be all in the mind, but who cares?

Check out Speed Intensifier today on Cydia’s ModMyi repo. It’s a free download, so you really have no excuse not to try it. Once you take it for a test drive, be sure to let us know how you fared down below in the comments.

    is they create any problm jeff

  • Leonard Wong

    Actually, I do feel it was a little tad faster but the speedy animation just made me so stressed up. As if everything going very fast and you have little time

  • Jesse Smith

    What’s the difference between this & “noslowanimations”? Also is there any problems between running apps? Do they crash because it’s loading up too quickly?

    • FrankensteinBlack

      Tried both. Sticking with NoSlowAnimations for now unless Speed Intens7 can be setup to toggle more of the UI it speeds up (just like the wiggle mode toggle). Many animated tweaks just look awful when sped-up. NoSlow somehow doesn’t impact them but still gives the benefit of faster SB UI elements.

      Jeff, you should do a side by side comparison ;^p…

        Ran NSA since it’s inception, but I find SI to b smoother and faster.

      • Did you have to uninstall NSA? Do they play well together?

      • h4nd0fg0d

        Uninstalled NSA. Haven’t tried running both. Figured it proly not a good idea.

  • iltas

    its works great keep ur battery safe frm draining

  • abdullah575

    are you sick??!! your voice is different

  • Matheus Lisboa

    I like fast animations and used it for the whole time i have my 5s… But i’ve been using the stock speed for a while now and I must say that the stock setting makes the device more fluid and actually feels like there’s no thinking speed, cause when the animation is over the app is already up and running

  • fernando

    Is there a 7.1 theme for ios 7 like all the new ui of phone app and music, etc…

    • sailesh

      I need that

      • HoodFlow

        Me too

  • Jack

    NoSlowAnimations does exactly the same thing.

    • h4nd0fg0d

      Ya, just not as snappy.

  • ✪ aidan harris ✪

    This tweak actually makes the iPad useable again…

  • Straw hat

    I want the iOS 6 app opening animations. If only some dev makes a tweak that does that

  • h4nd0fg0d

    I find SpeedIntensifier to be both smoother and faster than NoSlowAnimations. Jmo

  • Fermín Osorio

    Dotes anybody that tried it feels like it drain the battery or not?

    • Inseltraeumer

      No, not at all.

  • Svs

    It feels clunky when using this tweak
    Noslowanimation at 0.60s is perfect for me or Hiddensettings7 and springtomize 3

  • Kellsville

    Doesn’t play well with Springtomize I noticed. When I had both going they clashed together and caused the locking animation to be greatly delayed.

  • nurakun

    Very nice. None of the other ones including Noslowanimations, Accelerate, Hook’s Law or Fakeclockup works for my 5s but this one. My phone is almost complete. Now I just have to wait for Webscrollian to update. Why is Safari Scrolling so slow compared to Chrome on Android?

  • iphone5s

    its not working with my iphone5s
