Introducing Simon 5!

Simon version 5 is now available. It is a massive update, introducing a much-requested feature: syncing the Simon data between multiple Macs, plus a Simon Status service, a Link Checker filter, improved Find filter, iMessage and Speak Error notifiers, a new app icon, and much more.

Important: please note that Simon 5 requires a minimum of macOS 10.12 (Sierra), and is a paid upgrade from Simon 4. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Read the Simon What's New page for details.

Moving to new Mac-transfer settings

Is there an easy way to move Simon to a new Mac preserving all my settings?

Also is there a PDF manual? HTML one is ok, but PDF would be far better....Thanks all!

Re: Moving to new Mac-transfer settings

Hi Bob,

Yes, moving Simon between computers is easy. You simply copy the Simon data folder and the preferences file. See the FAQ for their locations.

The Simon User Guide is currently only available in HTML. I may add a PDF option, or move it to a Help book, in the future, based on feedback.


Thanks for the quick reply. Great on the settings. Less so on manual, was hoping to print it out.

Great product, bought 2 right away.
