Quickly rename multiple files/folders at once, formatting names by adding, removing, replacing text, and by numbering. It can be particularly useful at removing 'junk' from the names of downloaded files (like music files) giving them better, more readable, names.

Features at a glance:
◆ Auto number files/folders
◆ Remove, add and replace characters/words
◆ Change the filename and ext, alter their case (upper, lower, title etc)
◆ Apply a list of text to use as filenames (for example, a written track list)
◆ Build your own unique filenames and/or extensions using templates
◆ View a live preview of your alterations without any commitment
◆ Undo last rename operation (per session)
◆ Move files/folders up and down the list
◆ Alter all or only the selected items in the list
◆ Save options profiles for different renaming locations/requirements

The application shows a live preview of the changes you make in real time, without actually renaming the files. Once you're ready to rename, just click the "Rename" button. If you are not happy with your changes, you can press the "Undo" button to restore the original filenames (this is session-based only, so you cannot 'undo' after you close and restart the program).

You can load and save the renaming options, allowing you to keep different profiles for renaming. When you start the application, your last used set of options are loaded automatically.

Great app!


I get a lot of files from customers that need to be renamed to work wtih. I used a renaming app a long time ago that does similar things to Rename. Eventually, it stopped working because it became outdated. I have tried to use the automator and had some success, but I never want to rename things the same way twice it seems. I wanted a dedicated program to handle it. I tried the free ones in the app store first. They are free for a reason.

Rename is exactly what I wanted. The price is fantastic. It will save me lots of time. The options it has are much more robust than my old program. You can do several renaming changes at once like numbering, removing characters, adding characters. My old program would only let you do one thing as a time and then you'd have to start over again. You can preview your changes and after you commit to them, you can keep changing without leaving the program. You can drag and drop files. You can choose to see all your files in the program and select a few to rename out of this list.

Honestly, I can't think of anything I would want this puppy to do that it wouldn't. Time is money and this one definitely works to save me time. Love it! So happy to have found it.

Doesnt work. Plain and simple. Developer doesnt care


I bought this app awhile ago hoping it would be a suitable counterpart to Bulk Rename on the WIndows platform. Not only is the layout of the app terrible, any semblence of a user manual non-existent, but the darn app doesnt even work. I have tried most all options, and it simply refuses to work at all. I wanted to truncate a file name. It previewed just fine, but then all the rename operations errored out. At least it is telling you it doesnt work… previous versions would not even do that. They would just sit there and do nothing when you clicked the button.

Worse than that, the developer is wholly uninterested in providing any level of support. I emailed him to see if I was doing something wrong or if there was a known bug. I got a "go away, you are too stupid to use this app" response. When I responded trying to give more detail, I got no response. And of course… no refunds. If this is the way that the system works (the app store) then they really need to do more screening to make sure apps work as advertised.

PS: It does generate an error log file… which is about as useful for diagnosing issues or user error as a roll of toilet paper. Why bother?

Amazing value.


The main thing that drew me to this app was the price. It seemed to offer as many features as the others at a fraction of the price. I needed to rename several thousand video files and include their date created within the name. Rename let me do that and gave me an infinite way of customizing them.

However, the BEST part about this app was the customer service! I found a minor bug and e-mailed the author about it. He e-mailed me back a few hours later and asked for more details, I gave him the details, he found and fixed the bug, and then he submitted it back to the app store, all in one day!

I've used name mangler and a few of ther others and they work well, but this one is $2.99 and works just as well, so it's a no brainer.
