Six (6) Android Games You Should Play Now not Tomorrow

Got a new device? You need to get some new games. Here are some quick recommendations for great Android games. Some are familiar from other platforms. Some are free. Some are paid, and some have specific hardware requirements. All are listed here.
1.  Minecraft Pocket Edition
Why it is great: Minecraft is an entertaining block-building and survival game. You can play either in creative mode where you build and invent things in your own randomly generated world or you can play in survival mode where you use your wits and resources to survive against the creepers who come out at night.
Note – this does not connect with your main Minecraft account if you play the computer version of the game.
Play for yourself or keep it around to entertain kids. (Turn off in-app purchases if you do this.)
Minecraft is a paid app ($6.99) but you can find occasional sales, in-app purchases run from $0.50 to $1.99.   More »
2.  Lara Croft Go
Based on the popular Tomb Raider series and developed by Square Enix, Lara Craft Go is a relatively simple but very addictive puzzle game you can take with you. The puzzles are designed for short bursts of play, so pull it out in the doctor’s office waiting room or while riding the bus home.
Lara Croft Go sells for $4.99 but is occasionally on sale for $0.99. It allows in-app purchases. If you like this game, you can also check out Hitman Go, which is also from Square Enix.  More »
3.  Buttons and Scissors
This is a free puzzle game where you try to cut matching color buttons off of a square of denim. Mechanically this feels similar to Bejeweled, but not completely the same. The logic puzzles offer great challenges for players of all ages.
The other big advantage to this game is that it does not require any connectivity. You can play this game on devices that aren’t connected to Wi-Fi or in that signal dead spot.
Buttons and Scissors is a free download but allows in-app purchases.  More »
 Did you want to try out the new trend in adult coloring books, but you don’t want to carry around coloring pencil and a coloringb book? Try out this app instead. It’s appropriate for kids or adults, and while it’s not the same as coloring in an actual coloring book, it is still very satisfying.
Mandala Coloring Pages is free (with ads) but also allows in-app purchases.  More »
Yes. You can play an Android version of Portal. This is a real console game. As such, it requires a real console. This version will only work on the Nvidia Shield version of Android TV.  The Nvidia Shield starts at around $199 but allows you to stream movies and play Android games on your TV.
Portal starts at $1.99 but this is “introductory pricing.”  More »
If you have a phone with a fast processor and terrific screen display, you can take it for a ride with this virtual reality game. This is a first-person shooter where you aim at balloons. You’ll need Google Cardboard. This is an inexpensive accessory that you can either make or buy for around $15 and will turn your phone into a virtual reality device. Obviously not a game you can play while waiting in a doctor’s office (unless your doctor is awesome) but a fun novelty game to play by yourself or after having one of your friends try on the headset.
VR Cardboard Shooter 3D is a free download.  More »

2016 Responsive Social Sharing Button for Blogger Blogs

Beautiful and simple Social media share buttons help us to get our well-written content shared on different social media platforms easily. When a piece of content get shared more and more times on different social media platforms, it helps our content to get more links, free traffic and social signals which increase the value of our content in search engines and ultimately it ranks well too.

I have used four different social media share buttons which are as follow:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Google Plus
  • Stumble Upon
I have used only four buttons because the space is limited, but you can add more if you like or remove the one you do not want and add yours. All you need to have is fair knowledge of HTML and CSS. You can grab the code of any social media share button from the respected social media platform’s website.
You can see the live demo of this social media share buttons bar in the post image, and if you liked it, let us begin the installation process.

Adding Social Media Share Buttons to Blogger – Below the Post Title

Step 1) Go to Blogger → Template → Edit HTML
Step 2) Click inside the Template code box  → Press Ctrl+A and copy your template code to a notepad file and have a Backup of it in case you did something wrong, you can revert it back to original.
Step 3) Ok, so now you have the backup so again click inside the template code box, Press Ctrl+A or Cmd+A (for mac) and find out this closing tag </head>
Step 4) Now just before this </head> tag, paste the whole CSS code given below as it is.

<b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;’><style type=’text/css’>/*—-Social Share Buttons Bar By—-*/#twistBloggerSocialbar {  float: left;  width: 100%;  padding-bottom: 7px;  margin-top: 15px;  padding: 5px 0px 5px 0px;  border-bottom: 1px solid #F2F2F2;  border-top: 1px solid #F2F2F2;  margin-bottom: 15px;  height: 28px;  background: #FFF9F9;  position: relative;  z-index: 9999;  overflow: hidden!Important;}.shareBox {  float: left;  padding: 0px;  margin-right: 10px;  height: 20px;}.titleBox {  background: #5F5F5F;  border: 1px solid #000000;  height: 100%;  text-transform: uppercase;  padding: 3px 10px;  margin-right: 5px;  font-size: 15px;  font-family: sans-serif;  line-height: 1.4em;  font-weight: bold;  color: #EFF9FD;  border-radius: 0px 2px 2px 0px;}.titleBox:before, .titleBox:after {  left: 74px;  top: 50%;  border: solid transparent;  content: &quot; &quot;;  height: 0;  width: 0;  position: absolute;  pointer-events: none;}.titleBox:before {  border-color: rgba(245,0,0,0);  border-left-color: #000000;  border-width: 6px;  margin-top: -5px;}.titleBox:after {  border-color: rgba(245,0,0,0);  border-left-color: #5F5F5F;  border-width: 5px;  margin-top: -4px;}.twitterBox {  width: 77px;  background: #00A8E8;  height: 100%;  padding: 4px 10px;  border: 0;}.googlePlusBox {  width: 57px;  background: #E06352;  height: 100%;  padding: 4px 10px;  border: 0;}.stumblupon {  width: 75px;  background: #5F5F5F;  height: 100%;  padding: 5px 10px 3px 10px;  border: 0;}</style><script type=’text/javascript’>//Stumble Upon Script(function (){var a=document.createElement(“script”);a.type=”text/javascript”;a.async=true;a.src=””;var b=document.getElementsByTagName(“script”)[0];b.parentNode.insertBefore(a, b)})();// Twitter Scriptwindow.twttr=(function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],t=window.twttr||{};if(d.getElementById(id))return t;js=d.createElement(s);;js.src=””;fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);t._e=[];t.ready=function(f){t._e.push(f);};return t;}(document,”script”,”twitter-wjs”));</script><script data-src=’’/></b:if>

Did you complete the above steps? Let’s move on to next step which is adding HTML part of social media share buttons below the post title.

Step 5) Now Search for this code line <div class=’post-header-line-1’/>  and paste the HTML code just below it.

Note: You may find this code line appearing more than once (usually twice) so you have to paste the HTML code after its second appearance in your template code.

<b:if cond=’data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;’><div id=’twistBloggerSocialbar’><div class=’shareBox’><div class=’titleBox’>SHARE</div></div>  <div class=’shareBox’> <div class=’twitterBox’><a class=’twitter-share-button’ expr:data-text=’data:post.title’ data-via=’Ngospelmedia’ expr:data-url=’data:post.url’ href=’’>Tweet</a></div></div><div class=’shareBox’>   <div class=’fb-like’ data-action=’like’ data-layout=’button_count’ data-share=’false’ data-show-faces=’false’ style=’background: #4965B4; width:80px; height: 100%; padding: 4px 10px; border: 0;’/>  </div><div class=’shareBox’>   <div class=’googlePlusBox’><div class=’g-plusone’ data-size=’medium’ expr:data-href=’data:post.url’/></div>  </div> <div class=’shareBox’>   <div class=’stumblupon’><su:badge expr:location=’data:post.url’ layout=’1’/>  </div>  </div> </div></b:if>

Important: Change the highlighted text Ngospelmedia with your Twitter username. It will be added to your tweets in the end and you’ll be able to trace your tweets easily about who shared them.

Ok so now we are done with it. Save your template code and visit any 1 of your blog posts to see the cute social media share buttons appearing just below the post title. 🙂

So did it work for you? It should work if you haven’t skipped any one of the steps I mentioned above. I am always free to help you BDW 🙂 so you can ask me in the comment box if you need my help.

Making Social Media Share Buttons Responsive – Optional
So you want to make these social media share buttons screen responsive? Well, it depends on your template code and your @media screen queries you have used in your template code (in case you’re using a responsive template) so I can not make these buttons responsive according to My template code for You but I can give you an example so that you can work around to make them responsive according to your template.

I have made these buttons responsive for my blog and this code may not work for you perfectly the way you want, but It will give you a head start to make them work for you. Below is the responsive code I have made for my template where I disabled StumbleUpon Button, Share Title Text and Decreased the margin and padding of buttons accordingly.

@media only screen and (max-width: 979px) and (min-width: 768px) {  .shareBox {    margin-right: 1px; }   /*—- Decreased the margin to 1px from 10px  —-*/}@media only screen and (max-width: 767px) and (min-width: 480px) { .titleBox {display: none;  /*—- Disabled The Share Text From Displaying —-*/  }  .shareBox {    margin-right: 8px; /*—- Decreased the margin to 8px from 10px   —-*/  }}@media only screen and (max-width: 479px) {  .titleBox {    display: none;   /*—- Disabled The Share Text From Displaying —-*/  }  .shareBox {    margin-right: 1px; /*—- Decreased the margin to 1px from 10px  —-*/  }  .stumblupon {    display: none;   /*—- Disabled Stumble Upon Button —-*/  }  .twitterBox {    padding: 4px 8px;  /*—- Decreased the padding  —-*/  }  .googlePlusBox {    padding: 4px 5px; /*—- Decreased the padding  —-*/  }}

Note: You have to add the responsive CSS code with the CSS code given above.

Did you get it? Have some questions? Feel free to ask for help and I’ll do my job. I hope you liked these social media share buttons for blogger and added successfully to your blogger blog.
