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.

Date/Time problem in monitor

I have a strange problem in that the time shown in the monitor window under "Check Date" has always been wrong (5 hour fast - minutes are correct). My system clock is set correctly. I've looked but can't find anywhere to change it. What can I do?

Re: Date/Time problem in monitor

Simon 3.2 has this fix, which probably explains what you're experiencing:

Fixed log dates appearing as GMT/UTC instead of local time on Lion.

Could be a good time to upgrade to the latest version!

If you can't upgrade yet, you could use relative times instead of absolute dates -- see the View Options.
