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.

Run Simon on more than 1 computer with Bronze license

Can I run Simon on my home laptop and work Desktop with the purchase of a Bronze license? I need monitoring from two locations for one website. TIA

Re: Run Simon on more than 1 computer with Bronze license

The Bronze and Silver licenses are for single machine use only. Gold and Platinum can be used on any number of machines. So to be properly licensed, you'd need two Bronze licenses for what you have in mind.

Quoting from the Simon License Agreement:

The Bronze License and Silver License do not allow the Dejal Software to exist on more than one computer at a time, and you may not make the Dejal Software available over a network where it could be used by multiple computers at the same time. You may make one copy of the Dejal Software in machine-readable form for backup purposes only; provided that the backup copy must include all copyright or other proprietary notices contained on the original. The Gold and Platinum Licenses may be used on any number of computers within one organization.
