It depends on what you want. Folder (26) points to user-specific data, 
and (35) points to shared data for all users. So if you want your app to 
use the same data for every installed account, you'd put it into 35; if 
you only want the data to be used by a single user account (like a prefs 
file, maybe) then use 26.
