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).

SMS messages and Search Function on Forums

I'm just buying 3.0 today. but I am curious if the sms alerts problem has been worked out in 3.0. that would be very handy. I wanted to search forums but i found no search function.

surely I have overlooked it? I want to avoid unnecessary posts, and searching the forums made the most sense first. But no search was there... that I can see at least..

If this software really works, I'm definitely going for the enterprise license, but I like to read and I like to search...

where is this most important function hiding please?

Re: SMS messages and Search Function on Forums

There's a search field at the bottom of every page on the website.

As for the SMS plugin, it is essentially unchanged from version 2. I plan to replace the mail engine used for it and the Email notifier in a future version, to avoid the issues that some people have with them.
