    Try the Amazon app store. it's free and has less of a chance of giving you malware or a virus.

    Welcome to the Android forums :) this forum is a friendly bunch as a whole, so no worries there. I'd generally trust app stores from some of the bigger sites, like Amazon's app store for example. However, I'd recommend being careful with some of the newer sites that are popping up for a lil bit to see how things go.

    Discussion of downloading apps from external third party sites other than ones that are Google approved (Google Market, Amazon Appstore) is not allowed on this forum.

    Please support the devs in their hardwork by purchasing paid apps as you would not appreciate people stealing YOUR work; and only discourages devs from creating apps for Android. Not only this, but downloading pirated apps is an open invitation for malware on your phone so - DON'T DO IT.
