I normally use Photoshop or After Effects. It depends on the content of the GIF. If its video, there are several NLE’s that will render a GIF file. I also work on web design quite a bit. If you need a GIF, another route would be flash or HTML5 if you want cross platform for apple products. There are quite a few flash to html5 banner converters now and you can get a bit better quality than with a GIF file that way.
What ever you use is going to have some influence on the quality of the GIF.
