    Just came out, and I would give it a shot myself but I'm not home at the moment.
    Promising that there could be something akin to an update. I loved SpeedIntensifier, but sadly its dead. :/

    SpeedIntensifier was just a poor copy of FakeClockUp. It even used the same preferences plist as FakeClockUp.

    I like ClockWind, it's pretty cool. Except I don't know if it drains battery faster than FakeClockUp though.

    FakeClockUp v1.1 does not increase battery drain.

    No it does not.

    All it does is speed up the animations.

    Because springtomize can make the system unstable and it does more then just animations when some people just want faster animations.

    What does FakeClockUp/ClockWind even DO? Does it make an actual different in how your phone runs? Or is it just a fancy illusion that doesn't really have an effect at all?

    FakeClockUp make animations in the UI go faster. An example is the animation in Mail when moving a message to a new folder. Instead of slowly swooping down, the envelope moves down quickly. It gives the overall appearance of a faster device, when all it's really doing is making the animations faster. The speed at which the animations are increased can be changed. From 1/10 the default speed to 10 times the default.

    Been using Clockwind for a few day, seems stable. No issues as of yet. Nice to have UI sped up again though, gives the faux impression XD.

    there was an update released sometime in the last few days... the update README did not say anything about battery life fixes, so i just deleted it. it's definitely causing my battery to drain faster. (iphone 4S)

    i did have it on one of the faster settings.

    Yeah, I'm not seeing any battery drain changes. The drains still around -82 mA max, at lowest mid 70's.

    I just had to restore my phone due to Siri, but seems the author took this down.
