Very nice utility.Seems quite powerful and flexible. Renamed over 700 files in about 30 seconds, so I'm happy with the speed. Also, I was able to use it even without reading the manual.Really easy to use~

Seriously? $20 for an app that does less than what I can do in a for loop in a shell in about 10 seconds? Yes, it has a GUI, and not everyone wants to dig into the Unix layer, but there are plenty of free apps that do the same.

How about some original functionality? Here's one, just off the top of my head: examine the innards of various file formats to rename things. (Say, rename a bunch of generic pictures based on the EXIF date. Sure, I can do that in about 5 seconds using jhead, but that might make your software worth $0.99 instead of $0.00 to folks who want to avoid the shell.)

Certainly someone spending a little while longer thinking about it might come up with other things that might justify spending TWENTY DOLLARS on a piece of rather simple software that renames files.

If you have problems with its features and the price, shouldn't you at least download the application and use it instead of judging it by reading the description and seeing the screenshot?


I read the description, looked at the screenshot, and visited the developer's website to see more of the same. As you'll notice, I posted a comment, not a review. It would, of course, be inappropriate to post a review without having downloaded and fully reviewed this product.

I believe this to be quite fair; I would not want to take the time to install something like this that seems fairly worthless to me, yet I'd still like to provide my input. Thus, I can leave a comment without affecting the product's rating by those who have fully reviewed it. If you don't like reading critical commentary, then perhaps you should just ignore comments/reviews/etc altogether.


You don't even need to be proficient in shell to get this functionality for free easily.
Anyone can already do this, it's called AUTOMATOR
Apple makes it, and it's already installed on your system.

Thanks for your comments. Our products are designed to simplify your files management and resolve your problems in a simple and convenient way.We feel so sorry that our softwares are unable to assist you in that way. We will keep perfecting our products and services. Thanks again for your feedback!


The vast majority of Mac users aren't capable of creating scripts or a "loop in a shell" or whatever it takes to perform the task at hand. Heck, even the user's Library is hidden by default in Lion because Apple thinks most users shouldn't be poking around in there. Do you really think those same users can create a script that will do everything this app can do? We're not all master programmers like you seem to think you are.

Sure, it could be cheaper, but I don't think $19 is too much for something that could save many hours of time and aggravation.

I've used a similar app for renaming thousands of files, and I'm sure glad to have it!
