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.

Feature Request


How difficult would it be to build a grouping feature into Simon.

IE Pagesentry has an option for me to group each of our offices into 1 group. The advantage of this is that if an office goes down it only sends us 1 email instead of multiple emails notifying is that this office has gone down.

For example @ all our offices we ping the following:

- Router
- Server
- Printer
- Time Capsule.

If a whole office goes down, we get 4 emails letting us know that they have gone down and 4 emails when they come up. Is their a way we can minimise this? Ie 1 email saying Penrith office is down?

Re: Feature Request

Yes, adding groups that support coalescing notifications is definitely in my plans for a future version. Probably not till about this time next year, though, based on the current schedule.
