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).

Licensing options for local development vs. remote servers


I've just purchased Simon Platinum and develop web applications, first locally and then deploy remotely to one or more mac servers that I own and operate for clients. I also have a local server that I stage on that mirrors my remote environment. I'd like to test some setups with Simon locally on my local server then deploy, or run Simon on my development machine. Are there any network issues involved with running the same license in the same subnet for development, or the same license on 2 separate machines not on the same subnet but connected via the net? I don't mind test restrictions etc. but I would like a full feature set that Platinum offers.

Hi Peter,

Simon Platinum can be run on any number of machines within your organization; there is no imposed network limit.
