Use Rename X to change names of many files at once. You can replace the file name, add the date, number a series of files and more. Use the instant preview of all new names to test various configurations before actually renaming your files.

Rename X features the undo of renaming any file in your history!

Rename X is updated regularly based on user input.

Important note for users of the old version of the Rename app from the early 2010’s!

Delete the old version before installing the new Rename X app from the Mac App Store.

"Rename X" seems to be the best alternative to the best-in-class, but much pricier, "A Better Finder Rename".

There is a problem with the function "Find". Said I am finding for "ee" and repalcing it with "uu" on the folder name of "tee see fee" It will search for the match from left, and once found the match, it will not bother about the rest. The result will be "tuu see fee"

What is it with this horrible MacUpdate installer? Allegedly installs Rename in the Application folder (but it doesn't appear there) but then comes a window trying to change one of the scripts on the Mac???

Downloaded but then deleted. Unnecessary as Yosemite now has batch renaming built-in using Finder. Just search on the web for how-to's.

-- Window width is limited to ridicous 600 pixels, this limits the file name preview table radically! - No RegEx - UI not Retina compatible, but Retinizer successfully scales up the resolution. + Feature to add to Spotlight comment. (Never saw this in a batch renaming tool before) Either the old name or another arbitrary string.

This is a great little app of the "just works" variety. It's not fancy, but it quickly and efficiently batch renames large numbers of files very easily, with clearly labeled options, and a clear display of what the results of the rename operation will be before you do it. There's really only one feature I personally would love to see added: The ability to append a random string of letters/numbers (or, heck, just numbers) to filenames. That's something that even the new Yosemite batch rename command can't do, and the terminal commands for it are a bit on the hairy side.

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. --

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!
