Simon 5 is coming soon!

Simon version 5 is currently in beta testing. 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 will be a paid upgrade from Simon 4 after the beta. Purchasers since September 1, 2020 automatically get a version 5 license (that also works in previous versions).

Simon and Time Capsule


I just wondered how I would go about (if its possible) setting up Simon to alert me should something be wrong with my Time Capsule.

Re: Simon and Time Capsule

I don't have a Time Capsule, but I assume you can mount it on your desktop like any other network volume? If so, you can use the Mount Volume service to check it. Or any that access a file on that volume, if you keep it mounted, e.g. Drive Status.

Hope this helps.
