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.

Twitter account not detected by Simon

I'm hoping David can help me out here. I really need to use Simon's Twitter posting notifier but no matter what I do, the application won't pick up on the fact that I do have a Twitter account in System Preferences. I've messed around with older versions and deleting and re-adding my account from System Preferences, but Simon still gives me the 'Add an account in System Preferences'.

Time is of the essence, if anyone knows how to resolve this please shoot me a quick reply. Thanks.

Re: Twitter account not detected by Simon

This is a known bug in El Capitan (Apple bug tracker radar #23114308, #22869649, #22869928): discussion).

If you're able to use Yosemite, you should be able to set it up there.

I've tried several times to get Apple to fix this issue, but no luck. It affects all apps that need to access the accounts API. Very annoying.

Ya it would be nice to have a fix for this
