    Non official sites can be a risk. Especially, if you download apps that are not on any of the official sites.

    Welcome to the forum Mark!
    IMO, the little money you'd save by trying to get apps for free, is not worth the cost of opening your phone up to hackers, malware, etc. 90% of all apps you could ever want have either a free version, or there's an equally comparable free app available on the Play Store or Amazon. Of course you'll always want a few apps from that remaining 10%, but more often than not it's money well spent for not only a quality app, but the piece of mind in knowing it's a safe download.
    Good luck!

    I don't think it is safe enough. I prefer to get free or paid app from play stote or amazon appstore. They are reliable and safe. As for the latter, we can also view all apps in amazon web. Departments -> Appstore for Android.
