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).

iMessage message to any iPhone as event

Now that the new IOS 5.0 is available, a real cheap way of notifying the admin is maybe using the iMessage framework. That would be perfect to have immediate splashes on the screen without any costs. I have no idea if Apple has this interface open to developers. But that would be great, right?!

Re: iMessage message to any iPhone as event

I don't recall a public API for iMessage, but I agree that it'd be a nifty addition, if/when it is available.
