Hey guys, how's the ol' Optimus G Pro holding up? Pretty well? Good news! That guy is about to get even better, as AT&T is pushing the Android 4.4.2 OTA starting now. That brings about a bunch of new features, including some battery improvements, Project Svelte (which just generally makes things faster), and more.

What's changing?

You can grab the update now by heading into the settings menu and hitting About phone > Software Update > Update now.

ccleaner

I'm a big fan of CCleaner for windows. In fact, I use a few Piriform applications (Speccy is the best). Thus, I immediately opted into the company's beta program when it launched CCleaner for Android. It's a simple application, but it's still packing some useful utilities under a name I trust.

Until today, anyway.

As of the most recent update, CCleaner is basically nothing more than a glorified task killer.

Titanfall fans, do you want to show your gamer love? Of course you do! And now you can display the love for the game with your wallpaper!

Somehow that sounded far more exciting in my head. But that's OK, the point remains the same: NVIDIA just released a neat Titanfall Live Wallpaper to the Play Store. Is it amazing? No. Is it groundbreaking? No. Mind blowing? Nah. But it is pretty cool looking, and those who love Titanfall should at least enjoy slapping it on their homescreen.

Since his departure from Cyanogen, Inc., Koush has been a pretty busy guy. Yesterday, he released AllCast Receiver to the Play Store, an app that essentially turns any Android device into a casting target, a la the now-extinct CheapCast. Today, he pushed an update to AllCast that brings a couple of new features, including Google Play Music streaming and the previously-teased headphone mode. Check out the latter in action:

This is essentially a jab at Roku's remote, which includes a built-in headphone jack for private listening while watching content on the TV.

If you're dead set on getting a tablet but not dropping a penny over $100 on it...then you can't really expect to get a top-of-the-line gadget. If you're aware of what a Benny will get, however, then this deal may be one for you. For today only, you can get a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite from eBay Daily Deals for one, single, solitary hundred dollar bill (free shipping, too). Well, you can't actually send them a bill, but you get the idea.

Before last week, the term "XLTE" basically didn't exist. Then rumors started pouring out that Verizon would be offering a new kind of LTE with twice the bandwidth of its current offering using this unheard of moniker as its namesake. Turns out all the rumors were true, as Big Red just took the wraps off of this new high(er)-speed LTE offering.

On the surface, it's not a lot different than the company's current LTE: the icon is the same, the phones are basically the same (we'll actually get to a list a little bit later), and no modifications are needed to current plans.

Even though Google Reader has long been dead, many of the tools that remained in its wake are still going strong, and the way that most users utilized the tool has gone largely unchanged. The conversion to Feedly was a rather smooth one in my opinion, and integration with some of my favorite apps, like gReader, has been flawless.

Today, gReader received a rather significant update to version 3.7, which brings about many new changes and improvements, including a pair of new themes, custom notifications, better shortcut management, and several others.

In the past, Blu has offered budget-friendly phones with mid to mid-high end specs. The biggest issue that most power users have had with the company's handsets is a simple one: MediaTek processors. While these particular chips offer good bang for the buck, they are still mostly underpowered for heavy multi-taskers or anyone looking for lightning quickness from their handset.

It looks like we may be getting into a new era for Blu if the new Life Pure XL is any indicator of what to expect moving forward.

DoubleTwist fans, we have some good news and some bad news. Since it's Friday and you're probably in a pretty good mood, let's start with the bad: as of today's update, DoubleTwist can no longer import pinned Play Music tracks. Why? Because Google put the hammer down. You knew it was only a matter of time, right? Yeah, you did.

With that bit of grimness out of the way, this update also brings a couple of improvements, like the ability to stream to Qualcomm AllPlay Wi-Fi speakers.
