Accelerate significantly speeds up iOS animations

Are your finding the iOS experience to be a bit on the slow side? Are you using an older iOS device, and finding it to be unbearably sluggish? If you’re jailbroken, and this has been your experience, then you might want to give this new tweak a go.

Accelerate is a recently released jailbreak tweak that speeds up the animations within iOS. While it’s technically not making the experience any faster, the perceived speed increase may go a long way towards curing your blues.

Take a gander at our video inside for a demonstration that shows how it works.

Accelerate features a vast array of animation speeds to choose from, and it also has built in options to disabled the acceleration effect for specific animations. I found the disable feature to be particularly buggy with my jailbroken iOS 6 installation on my iPhone 4, but your mileage may vary.

The good news is that Accelerate is a free tweak, so it won’t hurt to give it a try. If you want a perceived speed increase on your iOS device, then head over to Cydia’s BigBoss repo where it can be had for free. Be sure to share your thoughts and opinions in the comment section below.
