The Best File Renamer Ever

This is by far the best file renaming software made, well worth the money in the amount of time it’s saved. I recently had over 8000+ files that I needed to date, name, and sort. I was doing this by hand and realized it would take me a year or so to finish. I’ve been using the App for about a week now, and it’s saved me hours of work. There are so many features on this app. There are features to insert text, move text, replace texts, place texts at the beginning or the end of a file. My favorite feature is the ability to insert text at a certain character position. I use this feature primarily to insert number values and dates, so if a file says “2018-VogueMockup.pdf” and I need to add a month value of “-December", it will insert the new value after 4 character counts to make “2018-December-VogueMockup.pdf". I Love it! Some feature requests: I would like to see a cleaner UI, more icons, and better placement of icons where it makes sense. The App seems wordy where a simple icon displaying placement of text or file extensions would suffice. For instance under “Change:” there are radio buttons with a list of 4 options. I think these options could simply be represented by a graphic and hovering your mouse over the selection could reveal a tip with an explanation: The entire file name and extension : [xx].[xxx] The file name without the extension: [xx] etc… Making these small visual changes would simplify the app and create a more compact interface. I would like to have the ability to scale the App window without it ruining the interface too much, or preferably a vertical app instead of a horizontal. I like to use the other half of the screen to search through Finder Folders and drag and drop to the other half of the scren where the Renamer App is open. Since this app has a minimum horizontal limit, it makes it hard to fit folders on the other half of the screen especially on a Laptop. I don’t think large Desktop monitors would struggle with screen real estate. Just something to think about. I would also love to see a feature where there are less “pop ups” to confirm file renaming after you hit “perform rename”. I feel like when I hit “perform rename” I have to hit “rename” 3 more times before it starts batch renaming. Seems tedious after doing so many batches. It’s not a big deal, without these features it’s still an excellent functional app that does the job and that’s all we can ask for but with the minor changes for the next version it would definitely take the app from excellent to unbeatable in the market. Thanks!

Excellent Utility App

I think it’s longevity in the Mac application world speaks to its outstanding usefulness. I’m new to this app and already can’t believe I’ve waited this long. If you have a long history of files like me (umm, dating to 1995), then this app is a savior! I’ve recent digitized thousands of negatives from the past, and together with an EXIF editor (MetaImage!) Better Rename 10 makes this job so much easier. Once properly tagged, BR10 can see the data and build custom file names so my image archive is organized exactly the way I need it. Oh, and it’s great at renaming all those “Screen Shot…” files that you want to keep! This is an incredibly useful app.

Perfect application for making my own rules.

This application is fairly intuitive and has the advantage of being able to write without much difficulty. However, users who are not familiar with English think that they can feel difficulty in certain sections. It seems that many users will be able to use it conveniently when various languages are added.

It’s by far the most comprehensive for this type of utility.

While there are apps like FileBot that do look-up based renaming for movies, TV shows and such, this does the best job at renaming for everything else.

Just downloaded. Works great.

I just downloaded this (April 11 2017) from the iTunes store. Seems to work great. I find it very handy to have files named with the date/time (to the second) and get tired of renaming manually. Sometimes I’m renaming close to a hundred files at a time. I was using another program that was free and useful but it was very limited. This has an incredible amount of flexibilty and it’s laid out in an easy to use/access/understand way. Like I say I just downloaded it so it might be a bit premature to praise so hightly but I’ll return if something goes askew. 20.00 was more than I wanted to pay but like I said I’m real tired of renaming manually and others I’ve seen don’t seem to have the features and ease of use this one does.

Current version is defective. Crashes. Wait for update.

It was working fine until I made the mistake of upgrading it. Now it crashes as soon as I try to add a group of files to be renamed, whether through the finder drag/drop or thorugh it’s own file open dialog.
