    First source will be the Play Store, given it's vetting the apps for appropriateness, to be sure they are free from viruses and that they follow Google programming guidelines. If the app is unavailable on the Play Store, I will cautiously consider getting it from a mirror site or from the developer's site.

    I typically stick with Play Store, Amazon or Galaxy app store, with the last two being extremely rare.

    Yeah, there's not much there that you can't already get from the play store. While they do have a few Galaxy exclusive apps, the main reason I've ever gone there was to download a few extra camera "modes" to compliment the stock camera app on my Galaxy S devices.
