I decided to create this list as a resource for people who either haven't found a program to animate with yet or are interested in trying out new programs. If you have any comments or suggestions please let me know; I intend on keeping this list up to date and adding more information to it.

I removed 'Easy Toon' from the list because it's developement was discontinued over 10 years ago, and it wasn't much more advanced than simple gif programs (this list would be about 3 times bigger if I included them all). I stated that it was removed in the change log. I may provide a criterion of eligibility/ineligibility for the list if there's any confusion.

Thanks @Killerkb!

Major update. Added 15 screenshots and removed 'Dimp Animator' (due to lack of reliable information and abandoned development).

If the screenshots being displayed as thumbnails creates significant lag on this page for anyone please let me know (tested and works good on oldish laptop, Samsung Galaxy S4, and Asus MeMo Pad 8 tablet).

Very nice list! I'm sure a lot of people will find this useful if they haven't found a program to use yet.

Xara can animate? Huh...

Killing someone makes you a rapist. Therefore, that means a lot of stickmen are rapists. It's nice how things fit together-like how sausage is actually roadkill with a plastic coating.
