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.

As it turns out, sending SMS within North America requires that two additional http parameters get passed to the API: "from" (the two-way phone # set up in Clickatell) and "mo" (always 1). For example:

It seems like the notification config should allow Notrth American users to enter a from phone number. Or, is there a behind-the-scenes config file that can be edited to do this?

I'll make a note to enhance the SMS plugin to support that for the next version.

In the meantime, try adding the from and mo parameters after your API ID, e.g.


That might work.

David, that worked well. Thanks!
