Apple may pride itself over iOS - a very well optimized operating system - but its weighty animations can sure use a speed-up! Especially if you're still sporting the good old iPhone 4S or an iPad 2 - both pretty nice devices you can score for cheap nowadays. Thankfully, rogue iOS developers are no less productive than their Android counterparts over at the XDA board, pumping a truckload of tweaks inside the Cydia store on a daily basis!
One that caught our eye is Speed Intensifier, a jailbreak app which lets you tweak iOS 6, 7, and 8's animations until you get the best ratio of speed and smoothness... or just disable everything and watch your iDevice breeze through stiff, disciplined menus. We'll show you how it works - just get your device jailbroken before you proceed.
