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.

Simon hanging up on Yosemite

Hi! I was testing Simon 4.0.3 on Yosemite 10.10.3 but it keeps not responding...
First, whenever I added a new test, it hanged (I had to force quit Simon and restart);
Now I cant ever access anything in Simon (I selected "preview" option on one of the tests and now when I start Simon, it just hangs, spinning wheel, have to force quit).
Do you know what can be causing this? I got a mail with a promotional price on Simon (50% off) and I was really keen on buying it.
Thanks.

Working. Uninstalled everything with App Cleaner, rebooted, installed fresh, and now its working. Strange.
Forgot to mention one thing: when I added the very first test, a very odd date appeared on the side of the test name (i.e. -68 years if I recall correctly).

Re: Simon hanging up on Yosemite

Very strange, but I'm glad it came right. I would guess that there was some issue with the computer that restarting fixed; it probably wasn't necessary to uninstall and re-install everything.
