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.

Reports not working

Migrating over to Mavericks mac mini. Reports are not working any longer. Am I left in the lurch with this version?

Re: Reports not working

If you're using Mavericks, I'd recommend upgrading to the latest version. I can't fix anything in version 2 (which was last updated over four years ago).

You can try the latest version before buying the upgrade to confirm it works better for you.
