8.10) What programs use: Touch Tablet or KoalaPad/Animation Station?

Thanks to Andreas Koch for the initial version of this section, and for 
providing copies of some of the rare programs listed here.

The Atari Touch Tablet and the KoalaPad/Animation Station tablets, while very
similar, are slightly incompatible with each other in that y-position values
are reversed.

Note that the Atari Touch Tablet, the KoalaPad Touch Tablet, and the Suncom
Animation Station are read by the computer in the same way that the computer
receives data from paddle controllers, making software designed for paddles at
least somewhat usable with these graphics tablets as well.
