    Google Web Designer has very poor functionality compared to Edge Animate. Very limited drag 'n' drop support, the layering system is weird, setting interactions and animations. The good thing is that is currently in development, and is multi-platform for free.

    This alternative is disputed. Adobe Animate is still a legitimate alternative to Adobe Edge Animate, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

    It does not work with video the way Edge Animate does. Edge Animate imports mp4, ogv and webm files just fine, Animate CC won't import any of those.

    Most users think Hype is a great alternative to Adobe Edge Animate.

    Works fine, most of the functionality "feels" familiar when you come from Edge Animate. Also tried Google Web Designer but it's too limited from my point of view.
