    It does have a lot of cool features, and will do for a lot of people, but it doesn't have things like bone tools and other things like that. (Also i'd way prefer it to be downloadable in my opinion)

    Easier to use than Animate. Friendlier scripting API. Always growing. Bug fixes & new features added to GitHub source almost every day. Friendly devs and forum. It can't do everything Animate can (yet!) but give it some time. It sure beats Adobe's monopolistic business practices!

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

    Moovely doesn't support any kind of frame by frame animation, it is designed for flat indie ads with ukulele music in the background, not actual animation.

    Animate CC is for artists and animators who create an actual animation with frames. Moovly is basically an alternative to PowerPoint that uses pre-made animation for presentations.

    It's literally Powtoon, but even more limited. There is no actual animation involved.
