Although the GUI is outdated and not Mac OSX conform it is working as advertised. For simple tasks it can be a time safer for free.

Hint to the developers: take a look at a modern OSX app and try to make this look/feel right. It surely would be a winner.

This is a PC port with ugly dated icons and gibberish for instructions:
"There is a long list of possible tag to choose from that will take a value if the photo contains metadata about it..."
Got frustrated, found Name Changer (Mac native) and had my files renamed in about 2 minutes. worked beautifully.
