A new jailbreak tweak (developed by a 13-year-old iOS mastermind) can speed up animations on your iPhone. Just download the tweak, which is quite aptly called "Accelerate," and you'll be able to configure the speed of animations on your jailbroken iPhone handset. Options are vast, ranging from super-fast speed ups to numerous slower configurations. Choosing a quicker animation can make it look like your iPhone is running quicker, though regardless of app launch speeds, users will still need to wait for the application in question to load up. The App Store app, for example, loads content based on users' Internet access, and so Accelerate can't enhance this aspect of the application launch process. But it can make animations snappier on an iPhone or iPod touch. And as mentioned, the fact that Accelerate has been developed by a 13-year-old is indeed impressive. Take a look at our video walkthrough below, and if you're interested, the jailbreak tweak is available to download for free in the Cydia Store (via the BigBoss repository). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bl0bdo-K7iQ
