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).

Notifications via Phone Call

I wish to have Simon make phone calls as only my cell phone receives SMS messages and it only makes a quick vibration and noise. I need full blown ringing so that it will wake me from sleep and keep making noise when I am away from the phone as when in the shower. Is there a way to do this via voip or something similar. I have Skype and Vonage, but would be willing to use any service that could do this.

Re: Notifications via Phone Call

That's a tricky one. I'm not aware of any way to achieve this, though maybe Skype or some other tool might be scriptable. If one works with AppleScript, you may be able to write a script to tell it to dial a number.

Anyone else have any knowledge of this area?
