    Does it really work? And what apps? does the app open faster or the content of the apps loads faster,does it worth it?

    It makes apps like third party bowsers and Facebook faster. It speeds up JavaScript.

    Does effect the battery life tho.
    Thought it was just animations that sped up.

    You can always overlock the CPU!!

    That's certainly nice .
    I'm not sure in what degree it affects the battery performance but it certainly wages in .
    Maybe some user can shine some light on this.

    It does not impact the battery life at all, to me at least but then again we all use our iPhones differently.

    Nitrous is one of the best tweaks I've actually purchased.

    That's pretty incredible when you look at the JavaScript speed tests between safari with the nitro boost vs google chrome without it. The difference is milliseconds. You can run these tests yourself too. Just google SunSpider JavaScript benchmark or something like that and you'll get the link for all the different JavaScript tests you can run. We're talking very small time differences.

    Regardless, its a tweak I purchased on launch day and always keep it installed. It does have its advantages. I have noticed no battery life impact. You can try using your phone with and without it. I bet you get the same (or very close) battery life.
