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.

PayPal Authenticaton

Is it possible for Simon to authenticate into a PayPal account? Simon Service Username: and Password: fields don't seem to work. However, I am able to populate PayPal's 'Email address' field with a parameter named 'login_email'. Unfortunately, an additional parameter named 'login_password' does not populate PayPal's 'PayPal password' field.

Re: PayPal Authenticaton

In theory if you use a Post method and include as parameters all of the input values it expects (including hidden ones), that should work. They might do some tricks to prevent that, though.

Re: PayPal Authenticaton

Thanks anyway. I suspect that Simon cannot work with input fields where 'autocomplete="off"'.
