Ratings and Reviews


Previous Purchaser Ripped off

Crashes when loading more than one file. Cannot rename a file.
Contacted developer- if problems are resolved, will edit review, but this review stands for now as a WARNING FOR INTERESTED PEOPLE TO NOT PURCHASE.

0/11 gotta couple of choice renames for the software and developer I shouted at the screen when dealing with these problems.

Does not work


This app does not work at all. Unable to rename a single pdf file. This seems like a scam.

Very useful; saved me a lot of work


A colleague of mine retired and gave me about 20 years worth of a printed scientific journal with lots of articles relevant to my work. I ripped out the interesting articles, scanned them using a ScanSnap document scanner, and performed OCR using Adobe Acrobat Pro XI. I then used this app to rename the resulting pdf files with the titles of the original papers.

The app was fairly successful at automatic extraction of titles when the bibliographic formatting was simple — titles in large fonts between the bibliographic citation and the author block. However, the success rate dropped for more complicated formats such as side-by-side authors/titles or titles in boxes. In these cases, it was easy to use the pdf viewing window to select the title and see a live update in the app title field. The live update turned out to be very useful because it is often difficult to get the exact text selection you want in a pdf.
