They are useful for getting more up-to-date versions than those that ship in the official Ubuntu repositories, which programmers can find difficult to update as they encounter red tape.
These are official repo's that are already added but disabled in Ubuntu. Both Get Deb and Play Deb are repositories, sources of updates for actual software you have or will have installed.
The partner repositories are another source of software, but for those with restrictive licenses that mean the general public cannot simply share them, such as Flash and Skype.
