Sudoku
I’ve probably mentioned this site before but if I’ve forgotten then probably everyone else has as well.
If you want to learn Sudoku or want to extend your skill to a higher level, then there are numerous places to go.
If I’m stuck on a puzzle I use this site: Sudoku Solutions    which works well on all platforms.

This interface allows you to enter numbers and check it, rate it, and get hints. It is very simple to use, with easy instructions on the page.

On the other hand if you really want to get into Sudoku and need to know the difference between a swordfish and jellyfish strategy?

Then this is the place below:

///what3words
In a nutshell, what3words is a new system that defines a given Latitude/Longitude with three words.
what3words was developed in the UK. They divided the world into 3m squares and given each one a unique three word identifier, making it easier to precisely pin-point any location compared to using latitude/longitude.
what3words has been incorporated into the Australian Emergency Services Emergency Plus app.

There is also a useful what3words app available on iOS and Android.
You can use this app to find any what3words location and navigate to it, or share the location.
It is particularly useful for navigating to a location using a compass if no data connection is available and you only have GPS.
