Download Paid Apps For FreeThis is not exactly legal, but you are pretty safe if you would like to go down this path. Most of these apps you will find here will be compressed as ZIP or RAR files which will require an app like UnRarX to extract the contents. Also if you download from a torrent site, you will need a torrent client such as Transmission.
Also note that some sites (e.g. Pirate Bay and Virgin Media) will be blocked by your country or your internet service provider (ISP). Don't get all upset. There is a way around this through using a VPN. This is one of the three most effective ways the Chinese or people in China can access Facebook!
The following is a list of sources that I highly trust (with one exception being google at times) and have had no problems with. Lastly, beware of Mac malware and trojans. Always update your apps and Mac OS (use AppFresh as stated previously), run a firewall (or use Little Snitch) and to be extra safe, you could get some sort of anti virus program such as Sophos to get that extra layer of protection. Oh, and do not create or log into unsecured WiFi networks as people can 'listen' and do extra nasty things to you and your Mac.
Lastly, when you signup to any potential dodgy website, don't use your banking password to register. Create unique a unique one as these details can be sold to spammers or hackers. To help with this, use 1Password.
