    The obvious sources like Google and Amazon of course, but if someone wants to source APK that for various reasons, those outlets decide that you can't have, where is a safe place to download them?

    Because it seems like a minefield out there.

    There are some third party reputable app stores out there. Amazon being one of the larger options, but there are a few others such as getjar.
    BUT if you download an APK from a website rather than a reputable app store, I'd only trust it if it was the developer you are getting it from.

    I suggest you to use http://apk4fun.com to download apk apps and http://apkplaygame.com to download apk games.
    They both are reliable, safe and trusted sources with a lot of apps and less ads, I have been using both more than a year now and have never got any problem
