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.

Twitter Notifications Broken

Twitter notifications are all coming up as:

The transaction resulted in a "Authorization Failed" error. Please check the notifier credentials.

However, the credentials are correct for CERTAIN, and fully tested. For some reason it just stopped working.

Re: Twitter Notifications Broken

Yes, this is a known issue — Twitter seems to have recently broken the xAuth authentication.

We're working on a fix for the next Simon release.

(I'm also working on a fix for Tweeps, which is similarly broken... but there I can leverage iOS 5's built-in Twitter support, which isn't an option for Simon.)
