Very good and intuitive. Would like to see two pref changes to make work even easier,

1. Allow users to select default for extension case (i.e, upper or lower). I always have to change from upper to lower, so would like Rename to do more...

Very good and intuitive. Would like to see two pref changes to make work even easier,

1. Allow users to select default for extension case (i.e, upper or lower). I always have to change from upper to lower, so would like Rename to do this automatically if I select that preference.

2. Allow users to select default for Before/After. Default now is Before, but I always use After.

Those changes would allow me to do everything without picking up mouse (which slows work flow).

But thank you to developer for a great product.

Slow with large amounts of files and not signed using a valid developer ID.

I was looking for a simple app to batch rename a collection of files. Rename does a great job for this one specific task.

Simple, relatively quick -- dependent on the resources of your computer, and great price! :)

Rename doesn't work when trying to rename a large number of files. CPU usage goes up to 100% and I have to force quit the application.

Else, it is a great alternative to the more expensive A Better Finder Rename.

Great app, but it closes when I type certain characters in the "Find" field - * and @ so far. I don't even have to hit Return or anything - the instant I type one of those characters, I get a message saying Rename has to close.

Great little free app. Best tool for renaming files, no need for regex knowledge but still as powerful imo.

As for the review below mine, that claims rename is not working on Lion, it works great. It has worked on Lion for me since I discovered it about 5-6 months ago...

End result: it DOES work on Lion and is a great free app. Thank you dev!

Thank you for confirming that it does work on Lion. I read another review that claimed that it did not work in Lion.

This is still my favorite.

Though this does not currently work under Lion, under Snow Leopard (and earlier versions) this is one of the best utilities for batch renaming files. It is quite easy to use as well.
