Suggestions for off-site resources are generally considered outside the scope of Stack Exchange sites. We don't want to simply be a repository of links to other places, and maintaining such information is a not insignificant amount of effort.

Anything made by Google. Gmail, Google Maps, the Play Store, etc etc. Any apps made by Google will break if you uninstall Google Play Services.

comment Get Rid of Google Play Services
Whether or not it's safe to uninstall depends on how you use your device. Do you use any of Google's services?

comment How develop the android game using android studio
Development questions are off-topic, please see our help center for information regarding the scope of this site. Additionally, Stack Exchange sites are intended for specific questions which can be reasonably answered in a single post, and will generally expect that you demonstrate at least a minimal amount of research. This is much too broad for a single question. I would suggest you find some tutorials or books to get yourself started.

comment Is it possible to install Android 5.0 for the Nexus 7 (2013 Wifi) on my Nexus 7 (2013/LTE)? I dont need the LTE capabilities anymore.
I've done this with other devices in the past, but can't speak definitively about the N7. I would not think that it would be an issue, though, because aside from the LTE modem the hardware is the same.

comment What is “Android Night Mode”, what triggers it, and what are the consequences?
Also, Google Maps does appear to use this, at least outwardly. Whether or not it uses some other data/calculations on top of night mode is not entirely clear, but if you're using the navigation at nighttime it uses a dark theme (black background and such instead of white).

comment What is “Android Night Mode”, what triggers it, and what are the consequences?
I can't list definitively any apps that use this, aside from Tasker's ability to expose this to you (as you already have seen). One simple test would be to create a task that's based on the %NIGHT variable and try it in a dark room during the middle of the day. Throwing together an app to test it wouldn't be too hard, as well, because it's just a resource specifier (search this page for "notnight").

comment how to view web video in media player instead of browser
Comments don't actually bump questions, but here's a list of things that do. In general, taking action just for the sake of bumping is frowned upon, but edits that add additional information are always fine (and a good way to bump your question).

Without describing a specific problem, there's not much we can do to help aside from pointing you to some instructions. You can edit your question to add more details about your situation if needed.
