3. Armikrog, this Kickstarter project by Doug TenNaple is breaking the rules as far as Stop Motion boundaries go.  A fully Stop Motion video game.  Nuff said.
2. iStopMotion for the iPad.  I use this $10 app almost every time I'm animating.  It has a very similar feel/look when compared to iStopMotion 3, which is also essential software when animating.

1. And my #1 best tidbit from 2013 is... Vine.
Twitter's Vine, well, I can't say enough good things about.  It has not only opened the door to the art form to a new generation but has also supplied the software, for free!  If you are new to Stop Motion, Vine is possibly the best way to learn how to make and finish a six second movie.  I highly recommend getting an account.
