Reputation checkers:

MacUpdate are hand picked. Has free and paid apps; some link to Mac App Store. Categories.
Softpedia updated daily so you can get latest version. Many apps tagged with “100% Clean” label. Some user reviews.
Pure Mac than 80 categories to search. Downloads are via links to app's publisher or developer. See: antivirus link below.
CNET Download is tested rigorously. CNET bans apps with confusing end-user license agreements, or that modify browsers or security settings, or that send info about you to developer. Many CNET editorial reviews.
MacApps to Ninite on Windows. Select apps from the list, MacApps gives you a custom Terminal command, which downloads the apps.
Mac App Store theory has robust processes to prevent malicious apps; but isn't perfect though.
