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.

v3 Upgrade from v2

Just so I'm clear: an upgrade from Simon 2 Enterprise to Simon 3 Platinum is the as the upgrade from Simon 2 Basic?

Re: v3 Upgrade from v2

Yes, you can upgrade from Simon 2 Basic, Standard or Enterprise to Simon 3 Platinum at the same price.

Or put another way, it doesn't matter which license level you have for version 2, you decide which level you want to have for version 3.

Generally, I find that most people want to maintain their current level, or upgrade it — if they have a version 2 Enterprise license, they want version 3 Platinum, but if they have version 2 Bronze or Standard, most have opted to move up to version 3 Silver or Gold, or sometimes even Platinum. It's a great opportunity to make the leap to the unlimited level, for much less than it'd normally cost.
