    I'm new to Apk downloads for Android devices and before I begin downloading them I could use some clarification on a few things from people with experience using them.

    I know APK's are helpful when you can no longer get a certain app in the Google market, but are there any beneficial reasons to use apk's even if the app is available there? Security benefits possibly?

    APK's can be dangerous, is there a trusted source anywhere who supplies clean signed downloads?

    Is there a way to check APK's before downloading them to ensure its safe?

    Thanks!

    Bandwidth data usage restriction only. Google store is safer.

    even if they exists , i won't trust them


    only by using one of the various antiviruses available on the Google store; they all check apk files.
