Next time you pick up your phone, you could also be picking up cash.


As mobile devices become increasingly "smarter," it is harder than ever for users to put down their phones. In 2016, Ofcom reported that nearly two thirds of UK's population now own a smartphone. The study showed that this group spends nearly two hours every day using their mobile devices to browse the internet, shop online or post on social media. If you are one of these frequent mobile users, then it's time you started earning extra money online. After all, your time is valuable too.


Making money right from your mobile device has never been easier. While there are virtually unlimited options, these four ways may be the quickest.


Download Apps That Pay


There are numerous apps that will pay you for your time. This may sound too good to be true, but it is incredibly simple as long as you have the free time.


Some apps, like Shopkick or Easy Shift, let you earn money by visiting stores you already shop at anyway. Scan barcodes and check prices to help businesses check their retail products. Companies will even pay you for putting their advertisements on your phone's lock screen.


If you want to get out and be more active, Gigwalk posts tasks related to verifying the name or location of street signs, roads or landmarks. GymPact will pay you to work out and then charge you for missed days, helping hold you accountable for your exercise routine.


Each app offers a different pay scale. Research which earning rate and activity level is right for you.


Play Online Games for Money


Online gaming isn't just sitting in front of your computer. There are websites that offer the chance to earn real money simply by playing.


Fantasy sports websites have become increasingly popular because of their strategy-based game play and immediate results. Learning the details of how to play these games successfully, however, can be overwhelming. You have to have a strong knowledge base in these various sports in order to be profitable.


If you are looking for something equally fun and easier to play, try online gambling websites. Live casino and betting websites feature classic card and table games that anyone can jump right in and play. Try your luck spinning the Roulette wheel or double down with a hand of Blackjack.


These games are such a great way to put a little extra cash in your wallet because you get to play while also making money.


Sell Your Stuff Online


Using your smartphone can turn cleaning out your closet into quick cash.


By posting unwanted or unused items on eBay, you can check two different items on your to-do list; you can make money and get rid of clutter.
If you like crafts, Etsy is another great resource that can match your talents with a potential buyer. Create hand-made products, post them to your portal and sell them immediately.


Although both of these give you huge ability to make money, there are some barriers to instant success. In order to actually sell goods on these websites, you must have a product that is in demand and that someone is willing to buy. Selling on these platforms require skill and patience. Both of these problems can be solved with research and studying effective selling strategies. And, even though these companies will take a small fee, it is still cheaper than starting and promoting your own business website.


Offer Freelance Work


You may not have a product to sell, but you might have a skill.


Whether it is writing, drawing, editing or just offering advice, there is growing market for services online. Known as the "gig" economy, you can sell a variety of specialty services through companies, such as Fiverr. Since you are paid by the project and your starting pay may be small, you may have to build a client base and generate positive reviews before you can really begin to earn.


If you are into photography, you could sell you work to a large, resource website, like Shutterstock. Because this doesn't require much effort to do, many people take advantage of this opportunity. You may have to be persistent and creative to get your items sold.



We decided to research ways to improve one's gaming skills. The tips below are meant to help you improve your chops in a range of game genres and get an edge on the competition.


We will focus on fundamental skills without going into specifics.


For the fact that there are vast differences between game genres (in first-person shooter games, reaction-time and fine motor control will be relevant; but in RPGs, visual acuity may be more relevant, where you are trying to detect subtle motions in a large open environment; in eSports, its perception, decision-making, and hand-eye coordination), not all games will require all of these skills, but they will include at least one of them.


Some of the tips may seem like a trifle to you. But mind you, each one makes a little, subtle improvement, and when combined together, that should add up to a fundamental improvement in your overall performance.


So, hopefully, you'll come out with some new ideas to try.


Be in good health and try to improve your abilities like memory


Playing a video game at the highest level requires your body, mind, and moral to be in excellent condition.


Gamers often skip basic meals and play into the wee hours. Such a lifestyle will hardly have a positive effect on your abilities, right? So don't forget to get enough sleep and eat well.


In strategies, like Clash of Clans, memory is very important. And there are tips and tricks for you to try in this regard, find some here.


Improve your environment


Create an optimal environment for yourself.



Improve your listening. Try to eliminate distractions by turning down (or off) the soundtrack and raising the volume of SFX, if the game gives you an option to mix sound levels. Also wearing quality, better yet noise-cancelling, gaming headphones will help hear the slightest movements. The worst is listening to your favorite music - it will keep engaging you. Turning off music will help brain concentrate fully on the gameplay.


Improve your visibility. Sometimes games are made a bit dark. If you want to spot someone before they spot you, adjust screen brightness to make colors brighter - this will provide contrast.


Use the tricks of the trade that everyone is using


Get cheat codes, tricks, and shortcuts. They are aplenty on the Web and can be extremely helpful. Knowing shortcuts or tricks gives you an edge.


Review what other players share on game's forums and places like Steam or Discord.


Learn by watching others, and yourself



Watch other gamers on Twitch or YouTube. By watching the pros, you can learn pro tricks and shortcuts or something you didn't know before.


Watch replays of yourself playing too! Analyze. Review every step you have taken, what you were thinking at that moment and what has actually happened. Most helpful when playing games like shooters and strategy games.


Play against players who are stronger than you


Playing with or against more skilled players will make you push and stretch yourself.


Get better, more comfortable gear


Having an ergonomic mouse or controller that is comfortable for you, can make all the difference. Try different alternatives. Without comfy accessories you will find it hard to play for extended periods of time. For example, without a gaming chair, you could very soon experience pain and stiffness in all kinds of places of your body.


Set up your mobile device in the best way



Visually rich games, like Hay Match, that employ a lot of animations require your device to work stable and smooth. Mobile users can change their device's settings to optimize resources consumption and thus improve mobile gaming experience.


Try playing with Android Developer options and multi-sample anti-aliasing, turning off background services, using booster apps to save precious resources. Better yet, buy a gaming phone.


Know the lore and developer info


Sit down and read game's guide if one has been provided by the devs. You'll find such handy info as button layouts, shortcuts, tactics, lore, and tips for improving your gameplay right out of the box. This will definitely make your learning curve shorter. Make use of the training mode as well.


Customize your controls


Don't take factory sensitivity of the controls for granted. They don't work equally for everyone. Test different options, find what works for you, refine it. It should make a subtle but fundamental improvement in your performance.

 

Practice, of course


As the saying goes, practice makes perfect. And learn how to handle defeat: Keep iterating after failure, don't let frustration or anger take over you.


Check out science-based tools


Don't stop there, move on to more advanced. Today, there are many startups in this niche offering to help improve our playing performance. This one, for example, is developing a neuroscience-based tool for boosting skills associated with competitive gaming. Worth checking out!
