    So I wanted to look at more Cydia apps. When I go on the screen to add more sources, it says that is not recommended. Why?

    The pre-loaded sources are sufficient for the majority of mainstream apps.
    The warning really relates to adding untrusted sources which could pass off any old piece of malware as a legitimate package.
    You need to make your own call about which sources you trust and therefore want to add.

    Great answer, thank you. I'll stick with the sources Cydia provides by default.
