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 »

W3 Total Cache – SEO and WPO WordPress Plugin

517

W3 Total Cache is a free plugin devoted to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and WPO (WordPress Performance Optimization). The key objective of this plugin is to reduce the load time of the web pages of any site on WordPress platform via caching optimization.

The basic tool of W3 Total Cache for optimizing the loading speed of pages is content delivery network (CDN) technology. This technology allows the user to download the site pages via the nearest available servers on a geographical basis.

W3 Total Cache can significantly improve the SEO performance of your site by improving the download speed of its pages. This is especially true for websites with mobile versions or sites that use secure data transfer protocol in SSL format. The easy loading is important for mobile sites because of poor internet speeds on mobile devices. And any site with an SSL encrypted data suffer from the additional data stream that needs to be optimized.

The work of W3 Total Cache will be directly reflected on behavioral indicators of users who visit your site. Faster loading pages can reduce the bounce rate to 80%. Depth of page views and the time that visitors spend on it will also increase significantly after the optimization by W3 Total Cache plugin.

W3 Total Cache is compatible with various types of hosting – from shared hosting to dedicated servers. Website owners that use shared or virtual private hosting should first of all take care of the load time optimization of their web projects, as these types of hosting can not give the best performance level.
