    Dejal Simon – Basic License
    The essential site monitoring tool for Mac OS X.

    Normally: $29.95

    ZOT Price: $14.95

    ATTENTION WEBMASTERS: Monitor websites and servers for changes or failures

    “…a feature-rich tool that’s ideal for Webmasters who need to monitor a variety of Internet services.”
    – Matt Vance, Macworld

    Dejal Simon is the essential site monitoring tool for Mac OS X. It checks servers for changes or failures, and notifies you via e-mail, sound, speech, or other means. You can use it to track updated sites, and to alert you when an important server goes down or recovers. Developed in Cocoa, it is a native Mac OS X application with an intuitive and attractive interface.

    Simon is very versatile. It can be used to monitor your own website and servers, track posts and new comments on your or friends’ blogs, check for web mail, get notifications of updates to favorite news and entertainment websites, keep an eye on auctions, and many other uses.

    “Simon constantly monitors the content of critical pages and shows me the changes that have been made. Quality control is very important to me: usability, reliability, design, that’s what people pay me for! In Simon I also find those qualities — and this feels good to me. … Simon adds another reliable and highly customizable layer of control and feedback! I also appreciate the fast response when contacting Dejal. The developer knows what he’s talking about!”

    - Holger Hubbs, web/print/information design,

    Central to Simon is the Monitor window. It enables you to see at a glance the current status of all of your monitored websites, servers, and applications. In addition to a colorful status icon and up-time percentage, the tests table displays how long ago the last change and failure occurred, and when the next check will occur. But that’s not all. This window also displays further statistics about the tests, and tables listing recent checks (including the check duration and a bar chart), changes (including the text that changed), failures (including the error description), and notifications (that can occur for changes, failures, and recoveries).

    “I searched high and low for a product to monitor my server, and Simon was the only product that worked flawlessly. Simon is also great at monitoring changes on other sites; handy if you want to be the first to see new content on seldom updated pages.”

    - Gord Lacey, Owner,

    System Requirements: Mac OSX 10.4 or later.

    For more information and screenshots, please visit the Dejal Simon website.

    The ZOT price is offered for the BASIC VERSION of Simon which retails for $29.95. If you have greater needs, please consider the Standard or Enterprise edition.
