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.

Hide Dock Icon?

Can we get an option to hide the dock icon and only show the icon in the menu bar?

Re: Hide Dock Icon?

Heh... when I saw that subject in the recent posts list, I thought it was a Time Out query, as that is one of the most popular requests... and something planned for Time Out 2, coming in a few months.

But Simon... that's a new one. As it happens, I do have plans to add that option in a future version of Simon (after the upcoming 2.6). So the answer is: not yet, but in the future, yes.

In the meantime, a workaround is to use a tool like Dockless to hide Simon from the Dock.
