AT&T's prepaid brand, AIO Wireless is already a pretty cheap alternative to the big post-paid carriers, but now the carrier is reducing the cost of plans, and adding more data to some of them. It gets even better, assuming you're okay with setting up recurring payments.

Aio has three main plans that now clock in at $40, $50, and $60 per month. The cheap plan hasn't changed in price, but it now has 500MB of data per month instead of 250MB.

Enough of your humdrum life, it's time for some excitement. Although, this is an Android blog, so we can't really offer you any life-changing extreme experiences or revelatory advice. The best we can do is some cheap apps and games.

Do you really like cereal? I mean, a lot? Then Activision has the game for you with Pitfall! Krave. It's a 3D endless runner type game that comes with a totally egregious Kellogg's tie-in. It's free, though, and they're giving away real cash money.

The Play Store doesn't make it easy to figure out what content you've paid for thanks to all the free apps gumming up the works. You don't have to dig through all that anymore now that My Paid Apps is a thing. It shows you all the stuff in Google Play you've spent money on and even breaks things down into categories.

Update: Google says Now is coming to the beta channel this week, but it is already showing up for us on some machines.

Google Now is one of Android's central features these days, but we've known for a long time that Google was planning to bring it to Chrome on the desktop too. The feature first broke cover in the Chrome canary build, which is a standalone pre-dev version of the browser.

OmniROM is getting a lot of attention from serial ROM flashers, and that lot tends to be pretty flighty – there must be something to this one. Now, the developers have added a new feature that might pique your interest. The latest nightlies of OmniROM include a new app switcher called OmniSwitch. Alternative app switchers are not an entirely new idea, but OmniSwitch looks to have a number of interesting features.

There are a number of big names when it comes to home screen replacements, and Apex is very near the top of the list. This app adds a ton of options to the AOSP launcher and it has just gotten an update to v2.3. It includes plenty of fixes, but also some new features.

Lockscreen feeling a little boring? Why not toss the whole thing out and try something different? Many third-party lockscreens are a bit awkward and lack features, but SlideLock seems like it does some cool stuff. SlideLock stands in for your stock lockscreen and replicates the notifications from the notification shade so you can deal with them without unlocking the phone.

SlideLock has a clean interface with a clock, date, and custom (optional) status bar.
