Great piece of program, the droplets are really handy and the ID3 music tag renaming possibility is very useful, too. Also the developer is super responsive, I mailed him a little bug yesterday and today it's already fixed. 5 Stars !!

A faster, better file manipulation cannot be found. I use it so many times a day I have it in the toolbar. I manipulate sometimes 1000's of files each time I use this. I will admit in the early releases of the product, it was at times unreliable. Since then it has become a hardened tool that I fully trust.

Have used this app for years. Simple when I need simplicity, powerful when I need power. I appreciate the developer's dedication to a quality product.

I'm still trying to find a renaming task that this app wouldn't be able to handle. Haven't found any so far. The best renamer on Earth!

Ridiculous that the "most helpful" review displayed at the top of the page is a 10 year old post by "Bluestar" complaining that ABFR is supposedly updated almost every day. This may have been true when it was posted in 2009 - but it's not the case in 2019 and is now irrelevant.

I have been a registered user of File Buddy for a number of years now. Version 10 still works with Mojave, and there is a version 11 in the works, although the developer has been dragging his feet about it.

File Buddy is similar to ABFR and has a lot of great features and functions, some of which ABFR may not have. However, I would seriously consider switching to A Better Finder Rename if -- as other commenters note below -- it incorporated an undo option.

Sometimes we make mistakes, or perhaps change our minds about a naming change. When you are working with dozens, hundreds or even thousands of files, as I do, being able to undo a change on multiple files becomes very important. Developer, please consider implementing undo in ABFR. Thank you.

It can do so much, it is amazing! It is the best one for renaming.

BEWARE - there's still no undo function!

That's unconscionable in a seasoned app like this, and is vital!

Even Path Finder has that available for its renaming window, and renaming is just a secondary function, not its PRIMARY JOB!
