You’ll find most of the root applications from the same Google Play Store that you have been using to get the regular applications installed. You won’t find them easily, though, because Google Play doesn’t showcase them in any way. Instead, you’ll need to find out the names of them and then browse for them that way.

There are a few root applications worth knowing about that aren’t on the Play Store as well–sometimes because Google has taken offense to them and decided they don’t want them and other times because the developers just want people downloading them from their websites instead. Most of these times the root apps will be sitting on high-quality websites set up by the developers or the links will be available from the XDA-Developers web forum. If you wind up anywhere else, make sure to scan the files with VirusTotal before trusted them, because you definitely don’t want to be installing malware with root access.
